Recently, Web Services (WSs) have evolved to a quite popular research field. Nevertheless, there are obstacles that prevent the introduction of WS provision in the wide market. Among these is the inability to represent the non-functional features of WSs, i.e. their Quality-of-Service. Integrating QoS features in WS profiles is to the advantage of both users and providers, as it enables QoS-aware WS selection and composition addressing the user?s QoS requirements and objectives, while giving WS providers a significant competitive advantage in the e-business domain, also maximizing their resources? utilization. This paper focuses on the formulation of a QoS ontology framework that is used to support QoS-aware WS provision. It is based on work carried out in the ISTAmigo1 Integrated Project for Ambient Intelligence (AmI) homes, which, exploiting heterogeneous technologies and infrastructures, aims to develop an open, standardized, interoperable middleware for the provision of QoS-aware AmI WSs to domestic users.
