Third International Workshop on

Service Matchmaking and Resource Retrieval in the Semantic Web



  8th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2009)

October 25, 2009

Washington DC, USA


Aim & Scope

The primary objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry who tackle semantic service discovery from various points of view. This year's workshop will especially focus on building bridges to the software engineering and model-driven development communities in order to share requirements, technologies, and experiences that might be helpful in advancing the state of the art in semantic service matchmaking and resource retrieval.

Going to Practice: The Third Semantic Service Selection (S3) Contest

In addition, this year's workshop integrates the third edition of the open international contest on semantic service selection (S3). The S3 contest focuses on the comparative evaluation of classic retrieval performance of ready to use Semantic Web service matchmakers over given test collections for semantic service formats such as OWL-S, WSML, and the standard SA-WSDL.
