Web services offer an enabling step towards enterprise integration over the Internet. Service discovery is the fundamental task of finding and assembling services to meet a request. In this paper a scalable service discovery architecture is proposed. The scalability is mainly achieved by employing the shared semantic space for discovery and coordination of resources distributed over the shared spaces. The shared spaces are virtual spaces which can be hosted at any node or server on the Internet. The system self-organizes into virtual groups that empower the capability of discovery mechanism.
