Before specifying Semantic Web Services in any language, the semantic description must be designed at a conceptual level to guarantee its correctness and avoid inconsistencies among its internal components. One solution is to use a framework for the design and semiautomatic composition of Semantic Web Services at a language-independent and knowledge level. This framework is based on a stack of ontologies that describe the different parts of a Semantic Web Service and contain a set of axioms that are really design rules that the ontology instances can verify. On the basis of these ontologies, designing and composing Semantic Web Services can be viewed as correctly instantiating the ontologies themselves. After creating these instances, they can be exported to Semantic Web Services languages such as OWL-S or the Web Service Modeling Ontology.
