WSMO mediator is one of the most important contributions that WSMO has donated to the semantic Web services. Mediators address interoperability problems that emerge when different Web services work together. This paper analyzes the conceptual model of WSMO mediator, its structure, its expression in WSML, and its used techniques. Besides, the paper mentions some of its shortcomings for further discussion.

Key wordsSemantic Web services      WSMO mediators      WSMO      WSML
