Dear colleagues,

I would like to kindly ask for your support in collecting SAWSDL
services for an initial test collection.
We aim to use this collection for measuring retrieval performance
and scalability of SAWSDL matchmakers (for example in the upcoming S3
Semantic Service Selection contest).

So far, we have an initial retrieval test collection SAWSDL-TC1 beta
deduced from the collection OWLS-TC2 (by help of conversion tools and
manual work) and collected SAWSDL services from different sources
in the Web we came across. This beta version contains
actually more than 800 services and 28 queries (formulated as desired
SAWSDL services).

But for sure there is a lot more somewhere, especially in hidden project
repositories. So, this is a desparate call for your help in finding
and collecting SAWSDL services of all degrees of complexity.
Even if the incentive to do so is low in terms of money and time,
means actually zero, i know :-( - we nevertheless could do at least
such initial steps together in building such a test collection over
time.

We would therefore appreciate any help in this matter: You can send us
your
- SAWSDL services, and/or
- one or more queries formulated as a desired SAWSDL service
   together with binary relevance set (= set of SAWSDL services
   you think are relevant)
in a zip-file.

Depending on the feedback, we will then put the first version of
the collection SAWSDL-TC1 online such that we then can jointly add and
modify it continuously online and/or at the next S3 contest at the SMR2
workshop of the International Semantic Web Conference in Karlsruhe by
end of October.

Thanks for your very idealistic support and effort in advance!

Best regards,
Matthias

PS: We beg for your understanding that we do *not* publish
our SAWSDL-TC1 beta right now.
