+ Research Areas

The objective of this research is to provide a solid foundation upon which reasoning about service queries can be performed, allowing the development of (so far lacking) theories and algorithms to efficiently query Web services. We aimt to provide the fundamental support for enabling the definition of service query languages including serivce calculus and algebra. In this regard, we are working to address some of the foundational issues in the emerging field of services science.
