Abstract: The interoperability of heterogeneous information systems via semantic web services keeps a real challenge. We propose a service oriented architecture for developing the interoperability mechanism in the information systems of companies. The core of this architecture is a web services semantic mediation infrastructure using a semantic model and the SAWSDL language for resolving mismatches. In the setting of this paper, we present our global approach then retail the data mediation and the semantic model which is based on the ontologies and the notion of context.

Keywords: SOA; service-oriented architecture; semantic web services; SWS; information systems; semantic interoperability; data mediation; context; semantic modelling; ontologies; semantic annotation; SAWSDL.
