There is much to be gained from adding semantics to Web services. This chapter provides a review of current metadata standards for Web services and explains the need for adding semantics to Web services. It also gives an overview of our current work in the area of creating semantic Web services and semantic Web processes. The METEORS project at LSDIS lab, which investigates the role of semantics in the Web process lifecycle, is also discussed.
