ESSI WSML working group

The ESSI WSML working group, part of the ESSI WSMO working group aligns the research and development efforts in the areas of Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services between major research projects.

Members of this working group include key participants with expertise in Semantic Web-related research areas.

It is the mission of the ESSI WSML working group to, through alignment between key European research projects in the Semantic Web Service area, further the development of Semantic Web Services and works toward further standardization in the area of Semantic Web Service languages and to work toward a common architecture and platform for Semantic Web Services. Specifically, the working group aims developing a language called Web Service Modeling Language (WSML) that formalizes the Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO). Hereby, we have a two fold mission:

• developing a proper formalization language for semantic web services and
• providing a rule-based language for the semantic web

The WSML working group is open for new members. People interested in joining our initiative should provide a CV and a rationale (why they want to join) to Jos de Bruijn (email: jos.debruijn 'at'
