2010 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
We then propose algorithms based on this representation to select web services for multiple agents despite the presence of incompleteness in their preference orderings.  ...  A qualitative way is desirable for web service selection according to agents' preferences on non-functional Quality of Service (QoS) attributes of services.  ...  We then apply this approach in the design of the algorithms to QoS-based service selection for multiple agents with incomplete preferences.  ...
