An Approach towards Semantic Interoperability using Domain Models

Georg D Heidenreich, Pantelis E Pantelis Angelidis


This paper introduces so-called Domain models to support semantic interoperability of connected IT-systems. The focus of the paper is to motivate the combination of technical and informal specifications and to present a procedure of modelling independent IT-systems at the semantic level for the purpose of semantic interoperability. The resulting domain models may then be the foundation for systematic mappings between those IT-systems which preserve semantics of both messages and persistent records.
