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
• 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' deri.org).
