Representing Web Service Policies in OWL-DL


We discuss ALCK, a nonmontonic logic that augments ALC with the epistemic operator K, and argue that a similar extension to OWL would be desirable. We show, however, that at its current state the OWL syntax is too inflexible to capture even this syntactically simpleminded extension. Finally, we introduce our implementation of ALCK as an extension to the tableau-based OWL-DL reasoner Pellet.
