Web services are becoming an important enabler of the Semantic Web. Besides the need for a rich description mechanism, Web Service information should be made available in an accessible way for machine processing. In this paper, we propose a new P2P basedapproach for Web Services discovery. Peers that store Web Services information, such as data item descriptions, are efficiently located using a scalable and robust data indexing structure for Peer-to-Peer data networks, NIPPERS. We present a theoretical analysis which shows that the communication cost of the query and update operations scale double-logarithmically with the number of NIPPERS nodes. Furthermore, we show that the network is robust with respect to failures fulfilling quality of web services requirements.
