I am very much interested in a global data model on top
of web services infrastructure.  Currently, the need
for a global data model persists and it should be
addressed.  Layered meta data, service chains and
schema driven semantic approach to web services should
be considered for standardization.

I am interested in such an interest group.

I'd be interested to hear views from RDF Interest Group

thinking about the 
future of the RDF IG over the coming years, and about
priorities for future

the next big thing?

IMO, semantic web services are critical in areas like
Web service 
discovery and orchestration.  Additionally, I believe
web services in 
general are a catalyst to other semantic web activities
as they increase
organizational awareness of open, layered metadata and
the potential for 
semantic interoperability (as opposed to syntactic
interoperability).  It is that 
potential that makes the next step from web services to
semantic web 
services both obvious and desirable.  

So, in essence, Semantic Web services may well be the
watershed event 
to the larger vision of the semantic web.

As a blue skies research area? As ripe for
standardisation? If there were 
an Interest Group, or Working Group, or 'taskforce' or
mailing list 
devoted to this topic, would you be interested in

I would definitely be interested in participation.

Best wishes,
