Workshop on the Model-Driven Semantic Web:  Enabling Knowledge 
Representation and MDA Technologies to Work Together


MDSW 2004 is the first of what we hope will be many workshops that bring 
researchers and practitioners in knowledge representation and reasoning 
together with Model Driven Architecture® (MDA) practitioners.  The focus 
of the workshop will be on how the marriage of Model Driven Architecture 
with knowledge representation and reasoning technology can dramatically 
improve current approaches to ontology and knowledge base development 
and, at the same time, enable next generation enterprise computing by 
automating business semantics interchange and execution.  Researchers in 
knowledge representation and the Semantic Web have been defining tools 
and methodologies that make it possible to formally capture semantic 
knowledge.  Once captured, additional automation can leverage this 
knowledge to streamline the alignment of information models that is a 
prerequisite to information exchange among multiple parties.  
Independently, there has been quite a bit of work on model-driven schema 
and data translation that obviates the need for detailed hand coding of 
syntactic transformations, and this work is now beginning to be combined 
synergistically with semantic alignment techniques.  Furthermore, MDA 
has been promoting the concept of using invariant rules, preconditions, 
and postconditions when describing service interfaces, as a means of 
formalizing the semantics of a service's behavior rather than 
formalizing merely an operation signature.
Participants in the MDSW workshop will discuss ways of bringing the MDA 
and Semantic Web worlds together in ways that can advance the 
state-of-the-art for each community while enabling new capabilities in 
business interoperability through cross-disciplinary interaction.
