W3C invited the public to the free seminar "Using Web Services - From Infrastructure to Semantics" in Paris, France on 6 March. Focusing on semantic enhancements to Web services applications, this event provided concrete examples of business challenges and how they have been resolved through the use of Web Services. W3C Member organizations including Amadeus, Canon, INRIA, and Nokia, demonstrated solutions already implemented in enterprise environments.

This seminar was a deliverable of the WS2 project, supported by funding under the Sixth Research Framework Programme of the European Union.
