The need for supporting the classification and semantic annotation of services constitutes an important challenge for service-centric software engineering. Late-binding and, in general, service matching approaches, require services to be semantically annotated. Such a semantic annotation may require, in turn, to be made in agreement to a specific ontology. Also, a service description needs to properly relate with other similar services.<div></div> This paper proposes an approach to i) automatically classify services to specific domains and ii) identify key concepts inside service textual documentation, and build a lattice of relationships between service annotations. Support Vector Machines and Formal Concept Analysis have been used to perform the two tasks. Results obtained classifying a set of web services show that the approach can provide useful insights in both service publication and service retrieval phases.
