Axel Polleres. Semantic Web Languages and Semantic Web Services as Application Areas for Answer Set Programming. In Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Answer Set Programming and Constraints. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5171, pp. 1-6, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2005)


In the Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services areas there are still unclear issues concerning an appropriate language. Answer Set Programming and ASP engines can be particularly interesting for Ontological Reasoning, especially in the light of ongoing discussions of non-Monotonic extensions for Ontology Languages. Previously, the main concern of discussions was around OWL and Description Logics. Recently many extensions and suggestions for Rule Languages and Semantic Web Languages pop up, particularly in the the context of Semantic Web Services, which involve the meta-data description of Services instaead of static data on the Web only. These lanuages involve SWRL, WSML, SWSL-Rules, etc. I want to give an outline of languages, challenges and initiatives in this area and where I think Answer Set Programming research can hook in.
