W3C Workshop on Frameworks for Semantics in Web Services (Call for Participation)


  W3C is holding a workshop on Frameworks for Semantics in Web
  Services. This workshop is being held to discuss the establishment of
  a generic extensible framework based on Semantic Web technologies, to
  support longer-term objectives, while continuing to develop immediate
  solutions for the most pressing Web Services requirements.  The
  workshop results will be used in setting directions at W3C with
  respect to this vital technology area. Input is sought from
  researchers, developers, technology managers, tool builders, users,
  and other interested parties.

    When:  9-10 June 2005
    Where: Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI),
           Innsbruck, Austria

  There are a great many relationships to existing Semantic Web
  efforts as well as to existing Web Services development, including:

     Semantic Web background technologies; e.g. RDF, OWL
     Web Services background technologies; e.g. SOAP, WSDL
     Registries, taxonomies, and search mechanisms; e.g. UDDI
     Rule languages; e.g. SWRL
     Ontologies for Web Services; e.g. OWL-S, WSMO
     Web Services Choreography; e.g. WS-CDL
     Business process; e.g. BPEL4WS

  Discussion of the relationship of these areas to the workshop topic is

  We are looking forward to your participation and contributions to this
