The maintenance of semantic consistency between numerous heterogeneous electronic product catalogues (EPC) that are distributed, autonomous, interdependent and emergent on the Internet is an unsolved issue for the existing heterogeneous EPC integration approaches. [] Key Result This approach has been validated through a theoretical justification and its applicability has been demonstrated in two prototypical e-business applications.

Explicitating semantics in Enterprise Information Systems Models

This research memory will show the results obtained during the Post Doc study referring to the published works, and proposes a conceptualisation approach for explicitation of the finest-grained semantics, embedded into conceptual models in order to facilitate the semantic matching between two different information systems that have to interoperate.

An approach for formalising the supply chain operations

An approach to overcome semantic inconsistencies and incompleteness of the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model and hence improve its usefulness and expand the application domain is presented.

A Collaboration-Role-Based Semantic Integration Mechanism (CRB-SIM) is proposed, which promotes collaboration as a key means of resolving semantic conflicts in concepts creation and editing, via a set of service-oriented collaboration roles.

Semantic Interoperability Through a Novel Cross-Context Tabular Document Representation Approach for Smart Cities

Experimental results indicate that Tabdoc approach can effectively identify, extract and consistently interoperate semantic components of tabular documents.

This paper solved the problem of context differences between heterogeneous systems for global information interoperability by suggesting a new concept of Open Information Platform (OIP) that builds on the two principles of naturalization and alienation.

Improving Multilingual Semantic Interoperation in Cross-Organizational Enterprise Systems Through Concept Disambiguation

An improvement on the existing methods of semantic relatedness and reduces the collaboration cost of collaborative vocabulary editing is made and SRCT-based methods are implemented and compared with some existing semanticrelatedness methods.

This paper proposes CCDR approach to make a semantic inference on received documents in a realistic e-business scenario and implements the reasoning procedure by developing SDR system which integrates with a novel inference algorithm.

A Semantically Enriched E-Tendering Mechanism

A novel semantic-enriched e-Tendering (SEET) approach is proposed, which enables heterogeneous e-tendering systems to be semantically connected and interoperable by applying collaborative conceptualization theory.

A transparent collaborative integration approach is proposed, which is built on a layered framework of messaging, structure, concept and collaboration, which resolves semantic consistency issues between millions of contextual vocabularies of SMEs.

Deconstruction and reconstruction of heterogeneous electronic product catalogues for semantic interoperation

The theory deconstructs heterogeneous EPCs into ordered concepts, structures and semantic relations by a proposed articulation approach and reconstructs the deconstructed units into a novel CONEX framework for component EPC integration.

A Two-Layered Integration Approach for Product Information in B2B E-commerce

A three-layer product integration framework is advocated to resolve the difficulties in overcoming these problems with a direct one-layer integration, suitable for inter-operation with higher-level document and workflow ontologies.

Context representation, transformation and comparison for ad hoc product data exchange

In this approach, concepts and contexts of product data are specified along data exchange chain and are mapped onto several novel XML product map (XPM) documents by utilizing XML hierarchical structure and its syntax.

A Web Service based framework for the semantic mapping between product classification schemas

This paper proposes a semi-automatic methodology, supported by a web service based framework, to define semantic mappings amongst different product classification schemas (ecommerce standards and catalogues) and provides the ability to be able to search and navigate these mappings.
