Our paper “Semi-Automated Generation of Semantic Service Descriptions” has been presented at the “Self-Explaining Agents” – Special Session during the PAAMS 2013 conference at Salamanca, Spain. The paper describes an approach of semi-automated enhancement of multi-agent system actions with semantic service descriptions providing a first step towards automated service composition.

Abstract: The increasing complexity and dynamics of distributed systems make the management and integration of new services more and more difficult. Automation processes for the definition, selection and composition of services for goal achievement can produce reliefs. However, a high degree of self-explanation of the services is obligatory for this. Today’s multi-agent frameworks only provide insufficient solutions to this. Within this paper we will outline an approach, which enables the integration of semantic service descriptions into multi-agent systems with reasonable effort.
