Ontology-Based Composition and Matching for Dynamic Service Coordination
Service engineering needs to address integration problems allowing services to collaborate and coordinate. The need to address dynamic automated changes - caused by on-demand environments and changing requirements - can be addressed through service coordination based on ontology-based composition and matching techniques. The authors' solution to composition and matching utilizes a service coordination space that acts as a passive infrastructure for collaboration. They discuss the information models and the coordination principles of such a collaboration environment in terms of an ontology and its underlying description logics.
