Semantic service coordination aims at the coherent and efficient discovery, composition, negotiation, and execution of Semantic Web Services in a given environment and application context. What makes coordination of services in the Semantic Web different from its counterpart in the Web is its far more advanced degree of automation through means of logic-based reasoning on heterogeneous service and data semantics.
