Semantic Web Service Architecture Using Multi-agent Scenario Description [chapter]

Sachiyo Arai, Yohei Murakami, Yuki Sugimoto, Toru Ishida
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Furthermore, we developed a system that translates multi-agent scenario to DAML-S, and that registers the translated DAML-S as a new Web service.  ...  The other limitation is that once composed, web service cannot be reused or transferrd for other requesters, because there is no function to put the semantics on composite web service.  ...  In the following section, we introduce the scenario description language Q, and discuss how multi-agent scenario is described for web service composition.  ...
