Service consumers typically have no clear goal in mind when looking for service functionality and are not able to formulate their service needs in a formal or semi-formal language. We approach those issues by proposing a mechanism that implements semantic service selection as an incremental and interactive process alternating phases of intermediate service recommendation and requirements refinement by critiquing the presented alternatives. It thus facilitates the incremental construction of service requirements and their specification at an informal level. Our evaluation results demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed approach in an e-commerce domain.
