Semantic Interfaces for Mobile Services (SIMS), Final Report

Project ID: 027610
Funded under: FP6-IST


The core idea of SIMS was that semantic interfaces provide new means to specify and design service components and to guarantee compatibility in static and dynamic component compositions. Compared to the well known static interfaces currently in use, semantic interfaces also define the dynamic behaviour and the goals of the collaboration across an interface. This enables safety and liveness properties to be checked effectively and to support service discovery and service composition at runtime with compatibility guarantees. Ontologies are used to enrich the services with semantics.
SIMS aimed at providing tools for design and validation of service components with semantic interfaces, and middle ware that enables discovery and validation of service opportunities between peers in ad-hoc interactions. SIMS ran from January 2006 through October 2008.
This document presents the final activity report, and is suitable for direct publication by the Commission; hence it is intended to be broadly comprehensible to an interested general reader. It describes the challenges that SIMS addressed, who benefits from the results, highlights the achievements and the potential impact.
