ABSTRACT With the emergence of high-end smart phones/PDAs there is a growing opportunity to enrich mobile/pervasive services with semantic reasoning. This article presents novel strategies for optimising semantic reasoning for realising semantic applications and services on mobile devices. We have developed the mTableaux algorithm which optimises the reasoning process to facilitate service selection. We present comparative experimental results which show that mTableaux improves the performance and scalability of semantic reasoning for mobile devices.

    ABSTRACT: Due to significant improvements in the capabilities of small devices such as PDAs and smart phones, these devices can not only consume but also provide Web Services. The dynamic nature of mobile environment means that users need accurate and fast approaches for service discovery. In order achieve high accuracy semantic languages can be used in conjunction with logic reasoners. Since powerful broker nodes are not always available (due to lack of long range connectivity), create a bottleneck (since mobile devices are all trying to access the same server) and single point of failure (in the case that a central server fails), on-board mobile reasoning must be supported. However, reasoners are notoriously resource intensive and do not scale to small devices. Therefore, in this paper we provide an efficient mobile reasoner which relaxes the current strict and complete matching approaches to support anytime reasoning. Our approach matches the most important request conditions (deemed by the user) first and provides a degree of match and confidence result to the user. We provide a prototype implementation and performance evaluation of our work.

    ABSTRACT: Service composition enables customizable services to be provided to the service consumers. Since the capabilities and the performances of mobile devices (e.g., smart phone, PDA, handheld media player) have improved, a mobile device can be utilized to interact with external mobile service providers towards providing composite Web service to remote clients. Existing approaches on mobile-hosted service composition are usually platform dependent, and rely on centralized infrastructure. Such approaches are not feasible in an open, mobile infrastructure-less environment, in which networked services are implemented using different technologies, devices are capable of dynamically joining or leaving the network, and a centralized management entity is nonexistent. This paper proposes a solution to enable mobile Web service composition in an open, infrastructure-less environment based on loosely coupled SOA techniques.

    ABSTRACT: Applying Web service in mobile peer-to-peer service provisioning enhances the interoperability and resolves the heterogeneous challenges of ubiquitous environments. However, due to the nature of mobile peer-to-peer environments, a central repository for assisting service discovery is nonexistent, service discovery process relies on routing techniques, which increase the latency of the service interaction. This paper introduces ProMWS, a context-aware mobile Web service pre-fetching strategy to enable proactive service provisioning based on user preference and context. The proposed strategy predicts the mobile user's query, and cooperates with remote services to pre-fetch the service to the cache of mobile device in advance before the user requests for it.
