In a semantic Web service (SWS) matchmaking process, given a request, it is obvious that not only a list of services should be returned but also a ranking of compatible SWSs should be provided. Obviously having semantically annotated services, the ranking should be based on evaluating semantic similarity between descriptions. Furthermore, the availability of such descriptions makes explanation of rank possible and can provide useful information in order to modify or refine the original request. Here we summarize results obtained on this challenging topic exploiting non-monotonic inferences in Description Logics, with particular reference to their implementation within the MaMaS-tng engine.
