Agent-based Semantic Web Service Composition closely examines the various aspects of SWS composition, and explores the concept that a Multi-Agent system can serve as an SWS composition system in which its agents can interact with one another to satisfy a high-level goal. In addition to surveying various proposed multi-agent-based SWS composition models, the book also highlights the cognitive parameter-based semantic web service selection models that can be used in multi-agent-based SWS composition, and outlines a new negotiation agreement-based SWS composition that can outperform existing techniques. Agent-based Semantic Web Service Composition is intended for researchers and practitioners as a reference guide for optimizing SWS composition and implementing multi-agent systems. Instructors and other academics working in a related field will also find the book invaluable.

function is just a simple weighted sum of the values of various attributes without considering other involved factors. A multi-attribute negotiation framework based on multi-agent systems for large-scale construction projects supply chain coordination has been proposed by Xiaolong et al. (2006). In this work, the supply chain has been considered as a typical multi-agent system. They have represented the target utility, TU, as: TU ¼ UBOW þ CS, where UBOW is the utility of own decision-making and

can be used to provide semantic interoperability (Antoniou and Harmelen 2004). Some formal languages can be used to encode the ontologies called as ontology languages. In the technology stack of Semantic Web standards (Berners-Lee et al. 2001), ontologies are called out as an explicit layer (Gruber 2008). Some of the important ontology languages for the Web are: RDF, RDF-S, OWL, OWL-S etc. References G. Antoniou, Harmelen F.v, A Semantic Web Primer (The MIT Press, Cambridge 2004) T. Berners-Lee,

addresses increasingly complex applications, the need for systems that consist of multiple agents that communicate in a peer-to-peer fashion is becoming apparent (Sycara 1998). Multi-agent systems are systems composed of multiple interacting computing elements known as agents. Multiagent system consists of a number of agents which are capable of interacting with each other by exchanging messages through some computer network infrastructure. In these systems, mostly the agents are acting on behalf

Next section provides an overview of these works. 3.2 Overview of Some Works on Agent-Based SWS Composition In this section, an overview of some of the works on agent-based SWS composition available in the literature is given. Among others, some of the reported works on SWS composition are (Preist et al. 2001; Abela 2003; Ermolayev et al. 2004; Kungas et al. 2004; Burstein et al. 2005; Vallee et al. 2005; Cao et al. 2005; Kungas and
