  abstract = {The big promise of service-oriented computing is the ability to
             form agile networks, i.e. networks of loosely-coupled
             participants that cooperate by dynamically discovering and
             invoking each other's services at run-time. The major
             prerequisite for this promise to be redeemed is an appropriate
             semantic service description. In this paper, we identify
             requirements towards such a service description language and show
             that neither of the two main current approaches, namely OWL-S and
             WSMO, is able to fully meet these requirements. We then proceed
             to suggest additional language constructs and a prototypical
             language, the DIANE Service Description (DSD) that implements
             these constructs. We explain how service offers and requests can
             be described and matched using DSD.}
