Discovering Web Services based on logical matching of capabilities is a new requirement for Semantic Web Services which cannot be solved with traditional information retrieval (IR) techniques. Building fast and precise logical discovery engines is an ongoing challenge of the Semantic Web community. This paper presents the discovery engine implemented for the INFRAWEBS project which combines a traditional IR-based pre-filtering step and a logicbased matching implemented in Prolog. The logicbased
