Abstract: With the rise of the internet, a lot of web services (WSs) are offered. However, most of these WSs lack explicit and sufficient semantic information. As a result, relevant WSs are not delivered to consumers during service discovery and WS composition and selection are so challenging. A possible solution to this is to provide the existing syntactic WSs with explicit information of their meaning through an annotation. Semantic annotations play an important role in semantics-aware service discovery, recommendation and composition. In this paper, we first conduct a literature review and then we present an approach for semantically annotating WSs based on linked open data (LOD) knowledge. The proposal uses similarity measure algorithms for matching the appropriate LOD concepts to the corresponding WS' parameters. A performance evaluation on real-world WSs was performed to validate the proposed approach.
