1330-1430 Review meeting goals and schedule, including

    • Sign-off on Requirements Document
    • Objectives for Upcoming Months
    • F2F Meeting goals

1430-1500 METEOR demonstration (Amit Sheth)

  • 1500-1530 Break
  • 1530-1800 SWSA Discussion:
    • Summary of WSMO approach and trajectory wrt SWSA
    • TAGA (Agent Trading Game) Demo and Use case
    • Mapping of SWSA requirements onto B2C scenario
    • Discussion of approaches to and roles for mediation
meeting objectives
Meeting Objectives
  • Sign off on Requirements Document
  • Set objectives for this year
    • Identify set of key protocols and ontologies to specify in next few months
    • Determine approach to layering on existing standards
    • Plan for finishing small set of detailed use cases.
meteor demonstration
METEOR Demonstration
  • Amit Sheth, Kunal Verma, U Ga
    • Tools for acquiring semantics elements of WSDL definitions (in presence of multiple ontologies)
    • Relationships to existing WS standards
    • Matchmaking protocols
taga demonstration
TAGA Demonstration
  • Trading Agent Game in AgentCities
  • Seen as illustrative scenario for commercial use of Semantic Web Services
    • Other similar use cases now being discussed by SWSL to identify language requirements, approaches
taga agent classes
TAGA Agent Classes
  • Customer Agents (CA) represent individual customers with travel constraints and preferences
  • Travel Agents (TA) broker business services
  • Service Agents (SA) offer travel services (airline, lodging, entertainment)
  • Bulletin Board Agent (BA) is the service matchmaker (between CA and TA)
  • Auction Service Agents (ASA) operate auctions (between CA and TA)
  • Market Oversight Agent (MOA) monitors financial transactions.
interactions protocols
Interactions, Protocols
  • CAs and TAs registers with BBA
    • BBA as Communitymembership manager
    • To play in game, be found, matched
  • TAs advertise with BBA (matchmaker)
  • CAs specify service requirements to BBA
    • Includes QoS and reputation constraints
  • BAA matches candidates, forwards to TA
  • TAs request proposals from ASAs, SAs
    • Negotiation, Bidding
  • TAs propose sale of package to CA
  • TAs attempt to purchase package
    • May fail resulting in aborted transaction, compensation
