    Abstract

    The future success of Grid-enabled e-Science depends on the availability of semantic/knowledge-rich resources on the Grid, i.e., the so-called semantic Grid. This requires not only novel knowledge modelling and representation formalisms but also a shift of knowledge acquisition and population from a limited number of specialised knowledge engineers to resource providers. To this end we have developed a lightweight ontology-enabled tool, "Function Annotator", to support resource providers in capturing and publishing resource semantics and knowledge. Function Annotator takes a different line to most knowledge acquisition tools in that it is designed for use by resource providers, probably in the absence of a knowledge engineer. Its aim is to facilitate large scale knowledge population on the Grid. Function Annotator is built on the state-of-the-art of semantic web technologies, such as ontologies, OWL, instance store and DL-based reasoning, thus ensuring flexibility and scalability on the Grid. This paper describes the tool's role in a Grid-oriented resource lifecycle, its underlying technologies and implementation. It also illustrates the usage of the tool in the context of engineering design search and optimisation.
