Research is the core task of STI Innsbruck. Our motto is "Enabling Semantics". Find out more about our current research directions!


Web Services are widely seen as the most promising technology to enable interoperability among heterogeneous applications. However, current technologies only describe syntactical aspects of Web Services, providing a very limited automation support for the integration task. Semantic Web technologies are being applied to Web Services with the aim of offering a higher support for the automation of a number of tasks, significantly improving the quality of the integration tasks while drastically reducing its cost. The RW² project follows the direction of research that describes Web Services using semantic annotations.
