Back in May, DAML-S 0.5 was released.  As this was not a final cut, it 
did not contain a specification of all the elements described.  In 
particular it did not describe a grounding.  While DAML-S seems like an 
excellent language to describe web services, without a grounding 
specification the actual implementation of tools to use DAML-S will be 
at best non-standard and not interoperable.

This seems like a good area to contribute to the discussion of the 
language and its implementation.  To this end I have put together a web 
page with the following contributions:
* a definition of a DAML-S grounding (written in DAML)
* a paper describing the motivation and providing an overview of the 
* examples using the specification (following the example in the paper)

The URL for the web page is

I welcome all comments and suggestions for improvements.
