Semantic Web and Formal Specifications

DONG, Jin Song
School of Computing, National University of Singapore

The diversity of various formal specification techniques and the need for their effective combinations requires an extensible and integrated supporting environment. The Web provides infrastructure for such an environment for formal specification and design because it allows sharing of various design models and provides hyper textual links among the models. Recently the Semantic Web Activity proposed the idea of having data on the web defined and linked in a way that it can be used for automation, extension and integration. The success of the Semantic Web may have profound impact on the web environment for formal specifications, especially for extending and integrating different formalisms. This presentation will demonstrate how RDF and DAML can be used to build a Semantic Web environment for supporting, extending and integrating various formal specification languages. Furthermore, the presentation will also demonstrate how formal specification techniquess can be applied to Semantic Web ontology and services.
