This research explores a new method for Semantic Web service matchmaking based on iSPARQL strategies, which enables to query the Semantic Web with techniques from traditional information retrieval. The strategies for matchmaking that we developed and evaluated can make use of a plethora of similarity measures and combination functions from SimPack---our library of similarity measures. We show how our combination of structured and imprecise querying can be used to perform hybrid Semantic Web service matchmaking. We analyze our approach thoroughly on a large OWL-S service test collection and show how our initial strategies can be improved by applying machine learning algorithms to result in very effective strategies for matchmaking.
