TOWARDS A SEMANTICALLY AUGMENTED COLLABORATIVE WORKING ENVIRONMENT - Designing a Service Oriented Architecture Environment for eProfesionals

Antonio Ruiz-Martínez, M. Antonia Martínez-Carreras, Antonio F. Gómez-Skarmeta

Abstract

Both social and economic changes have favored the appearance of eProfessionals as workers whose business and tasks can only be achieved using modern cooperative technologies. To be able to achieve this vision there is a need to research and develop new collaborative working environments. This is the main goal of the ECOSPACE project. As part of the research in this project, in this paper, we introduce an architecture based on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) which has been improved by means of the inclusion of semantic information. This semantic information allows us to achieve a better level of interoperability than we can provide only by using the syntactic information provided by SOA technologies.
