Participants, Projects, SWS Frameworks • Projects and Participants – EU Research Projects: DIP, Semantic.

Participants, Projects, SWS Frameworks • Projects and Participants – EU Research Projects: DIP, Semantic. Gov, Onto. Gov – EU Industrial Activities (BPM) – Canadian Research Activities • Frameworks – SWS: WSMO, OWL-S, WSDL-S – BPM • Many projects just started or ongoing – SWS new approach in e-government 2

Outcomes (1) • Applicability of SWS to e-Government – Technical point of view: •

Outcomes (1) • Applicability of SWS to e-Government – Technical point of view: • in principle, e-gov system can be seen as service oriented architecture – Organizational point of view: • People need to understand benefits of WS and SOA in e-gov -> education • WS – need support of companies that government can rely on • In practise, PA not even ready to use WS -> SWS would be challenging • SWS as built on WS is one step forward 3

Outcomes (2) • Value Added for e-Government, Advantage of using SWS in e-Gov –

Outcomes (2) • Value Added for e-Government, Advantage of using SWS in e-Gov – SWS can help in solving heterogeneity issues • Data Interoperability (domain ontologies, data mediation) • Process Interoperability – not a big issue? – SWS can help in formalizing PA service model • BPM • E. g. PA service model from GEA formalized using WSMO and WSML • Value Added for SWS Technologies? – Verification of SWS frameworks, feedback to SWS development – Revealing missing aspects of SWS from e-government 4

Outcomes (3) • Community synergies – Use Cases – evaluation of UC, sharing UC,

Outcomes (3) • Community synergies – Use Cases – evaluation of UC, sharing UC, lessons learned • Differences between US and Europe – WSDL-S – not applied to SWS – Canada – survey on possibilities, use of SWS • The most relevant standardisation issues – SWS • W 3 C standardization efforts in SWS (SWS IG, Semantics for WS) • OASIS standardization efforts in SEE TC – E-Gov • “standardization” process at national levels (common data models for PA) -> domain ontology infrastructure 5
