Introduction to the First Year of the Semantic Web Services Challenge

  • Charles Petrie
Part of the Semantic Web And Beyond book series (ADSW, volume 8)

The Semantic Web Services Challenge is an initiative that includes a set of workshops in which participants present papers on how they have solved some set of benchmark problems in mediating, discovering, and composing web services. The claims are verified by capturing the messages exchanged with the Challenge testbed, and also by code inspection by workshop participants. Technology certifications are stated publicly on the Challenge wiki. Experience thus far shows that even simple problems are much harder to actually solve than is suggested by papers in venues that do not so verify such claims.
