Objective

One of the greatest challenges in Grid Computing (GC) regards the ability to explicitly share and deploy knowledge to be used for the development of innovative Grid infrastructure, and for Grid applications - the Semantic Grid (SG). ONTOGRID objective is to produce the technological infrastructure for the rapid prototyping and development of knowledge-intensive distributed open services for the SG. The results aim at developing grid systems that optimise cross-process, cross-company and cross-industry collaboration, which ONTOGRID will show by adopting a use case-guided development and evaluation strategy based on two test case applications, delivering a prototype at the project's end. The project will develop a new methodology together with a framework and reference architecture for the SG, compliant with the OGSA, driven by requirements from, and evaluated against, two use cases: Quality Analysis for Satellite Missions (involving integration of heterogeneous information sources) and Insurance settlement (involving large number of human and computational services and information transport). Within this framework we will enhance current Knowledge Technologies (ontology tool suites, software agents & negotiation techniques, metadata annotation, reasoning methods), to be Grid-aware (or Grid-enabled) in order to become scalable, secure and robust. These services and technologies will allow us to enable a selection of Grid Services (GS) to become knowledge aware/assisted and to show how GS might operate at the knowledge level. The resulting infrastructure will be subject to algorithmic analysis and performance evaluation for the SG components. ONTOGRID will cooperate with other FP6 projects. It will make its results available to them and solicit their cooperation to influence the architectural design of a SG. We will adopt and influence standards in SG and GC, in particular the OGSA high level service specifications and relevant GGF groups concerned with metadat
