OWL-S has been the focus of a sizable amount of research effort, both from the OWL-S Coalition, which codified the ontology, as well as the researchers who have used OWL-S in their experimental work. Indeed, work on OWL-S can be found both in industry and academia, and papers on or using OWL-S are presented in virtually all conferences on the Web, Semantic Web and Web services. This workshop aims at providing a place where practitioners can exchange their experiences with OWL-S. Furthermore, the workshop will provide a forum in which to discuss the further evolution of OWL-S in such a way that users and communities with specific interests can take charge in proposing changes to the ontology that they believe will be helpful.

The topic of discussion will be centered around experiences in using OWL-S and the challenges of using OWL-S. Specific attention will be given to papers identifying aspects of Web services cannot be modeled with OWL-S, with particular regard to the interaction with SAWSDL, and on ways to extend the language to address these needs. Papers on comparison and cross-fertilization with other approaches such as WSMO will also be welcome.

Specifically, topics of interest at the workshop will include but not limited to:

  • Novel applications of OWL-S
  • New algorithms for service discovery and composition
  • Models and mechanisms for monitoring execution of OWL-S web services
  • New types of grounding
  • Uses of OWL-S in novel environments, such as for mobile computing and networked appliances
  • Relation to other Web services efforts
  • Formal aspects of OWL-S and its relationship to Description Logics and OWL
  • Semantic Web Service Mediation

The workshop will be held in Innsbruck in conjunction with the 4th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2007) on the 6th or 7th of June, 2007.

We invite papers that report on completed or current work related to the topic of this workshop. Submissions are to be emailed in Postscript or Adobe PDF format to Massimo Paolucci (paolucci@docomolab-euro.com), no later than March 19, 2007. Papers should be formatted according to the official formatting guidelines of the ESWC'06 main conference (LNCS). Page limit is set to a maximum of 6 for short papers, and 14 for full papers. At least one of the paper authors of the papers is expected to participate in the workshop.
