Abstract:
Understanding bioinformatic data on the Web often requires the interoperation of heterogeneous and autonomous services. Unfortunately, getting many different services to interoperate is problematic, and frequently requires cumbersome shim components which can be difficult to describe and discover using existing techniques. The use of description logic reasoning has been proposed as a method for improving discovery of services, by classifying advertisements and matchmaking them with requests on the semantic Web. However, theoretical approaches to reasoning with semantic Web services have not been adequately tested on realistic scenarios while practical approaches have not fully investigated or applied useful aspects of current theory.
