In this book, Dieter Fensel and his qualified team lay the foundation for understanding the Semantic Web Services infrastructure, aimed at eliminating human intervention and thus allowing for seamless integration of information systems. They focus on the currently most advanced SWS infrastructure, namely SESA and related work such as the Web Services Execution Environment (WSMX) activities and the Semantic Execution Environment (OASIS SEE TC) standardization effort.

His current research interests are around the usage of semantics in 21st century computer science. Dieter published numerous books and papers about ontologies, the Semantic Web, and Semantic Web Services for more than a decade. Michal Zaremba is a researcher with DERI, working as system architect and developer in Semantic Web service systems and also leading the Semantic Execution Environment cluster. He is a founding member of the WSMO and WSMX working groups and member of the Semantic Web services Interest Group (SWSI) and the Semantic Web services Architecture Committee (SWSA). Michal is a chair of the Semantic Execution Environment (SEE) Technical Committee (TC) and has been an observer to several other TCs, as well as a contributor to the open source implementation of the ebXML registry/repository. His current research interests include Semantic Web Services, eBusiness, Enterprise Application Integration, B2B Integration as well as Business Process Management. Mick Kerrigan is a PhD researcher in the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) located in Leopold-Franz University Innsbruck, Austria. Over the last year he has been primarily involved in the WSMX working group focusing on front-end tools for Semantic Web Services. The primary output of his work has been the Web Service Modeling Toolkit, a collection of tools for Semantic Web Services, focusing on tools for creating and managing WSMO descriptions. Mick is also a contributor to and the secretary of the OASIS Semantic Execution Environment technical committee (SEE TC).
