WS2: Web services and semantics

Project ID: 004308
Funded under: FP6-IST


The goal of WS2 is to support the W3C in administering its Web services related standard activities, their wide adoption in the European industry, and their evolution toward achieving efficient and interoperable communications within distributed soft ware, as well as rich and complex interactions, exploring use of Semantic Web technologies. The impact foreseen for this project is that it will enable a wider range of use, from business processes to collaboration tools, of the current generation of machine-to-machine Web Services interaction, as well as promoting the extension of these technologies based on new requirements from the industry, using recent and open technology like W3C Semantic Web technologies. The input of the European industry is very important at that point in time, as our industry is well positioned as an advanced user of these Web Services layers, and it was less as a producer of these first bricks (role usually held by American soft ware makers).
