  abstract = {Web services will only have advantages over existing
              technologies if the service binding can be performed
              dynamically. However, existing service description languages
              do not contain enough information for a computer
              agent to do the selection automatically during runtime on
              behalf of the user. This results from the fact that in most
              approaches the offer description language doubles as a request
              language, which prevents the requestor from a precise
              formulation of requests and preferences. Therefore,
              in this paper, we emphasize the need for a distinguished
              service request language that allows to capture all of the
              requestor’s preferences. We present a concrete technique
              to represent such preference-containing requests, which
              is based on fuzzy object sets.}
