OWL-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services 

OWL-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services: "Abstract
The Semantic Web should enable greater access not only to content but also to services on the Web. Users and software agents should be able to discover, invoke, compose, and monitor Web resources offering particular services and having particular properties, and should be able to do so with a high degree of automation if desired. Powerful tools should be enabled by service descriptions, across the Web service lifecycle. OWL-S (formerly DAML-S) is an ontology of services that makes these functionalities possible. In this submission we describe the overall structure of the ontology and its three main parts: the service profile for advertising and discovering services; the process model, which gives a detailed description of a service's operation; and the grounding, which provides details on how to interoperate with a service, via messages.
Following the layered approach to markup language development, the current version of OWL-S builds on the Ontology Web Language (OWL) Recommendation produced by theWeb-Ontology Working Group at the World Wide Web Consortium. "
