Enhancing Grid Service Discovery with a Semantic Wiki and the Concept Matching Approach

Guan, Tao, Fowler, David, Bandara, Ayomi, Zaluska, Ed, De Roure, David, Crowder, Richard and Wills, Gary (2009) Enhancing Grid Service Discovery with a Semantic Wiki and the Concept Matching Approach At The 5th International Conference on Semantic, Knowledge and Grid. 10 - 12 Oct 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


An important challenge of realizing the vision of Grid computing that heterogeneous resources are shared in dynamic and multi-institutional virtual organization is that users need to locate, find, select and invoke appropriate Grid services on demand. However, at the current stage, both Grid resource description and discovery mechanisms are still at an immature stage. This paper presents a semantic solution for flexible Grid service discovery. The service description knowledge is collected by using a semantic wiki, and the proposed service matching approach compares the semantic content of user requests against service advertisements and provides a ranked list of candidate service. Based on them, a service information middleware has been developed and integrated into the service-oriented Grid environment, facilitating an enhanced Grid access for users.
