Guido Laures, Harald Meyer, and Martin Breest: "An Engineering Method for Semantic Service Applications", First International Workshop on Design of Service-Oriented Applications (WDSOA 05)

Industrial usage scenarios for semantic services are currently hard to find. The lack of standardized ontologies for certain business domains, the complexity of the technologies, and very few concrete design methodologies hamper the acceptance of semantic services-oriented approaches.

The service engineering method presented in this paper demonstrates how end-user centric applications can benefit from the potential of semantic services and their (semi-)automated composition. A practical implementation example taken from the telecommunication sector proves the applicability of the presented approach.
