Hello Paola and all!
I hoped to have a journal article out by now, but unfortunately the review
process takes as long as always. The paper is in for review since June last
year and I have not heard anything back so far, so please excuse me for not
sending the unpublished version.
However, we are working on composable web services to support heterogeneous
operations (such as different organizations of different nations). Although
the application grew out of the Modeling & Simulation Defense sector, the
underlying technology can be applied for every other domain that requires
coordination, alignment, and harmonization between individual processes,
services, components, etc.  What I can do is attach some Journal and
referenced conference proceedings dealing with the topic, including the
slideset of an invited presentation I gave on the stage of the Joint Forces
Command booth on the I/ITSEC Showfloor (December 2006, Orlando, FL).
The main idea is to work from information exchange requirements of working
processes towards a federated data schema towards a common data engineering
process towards a common ontology. We use the "Levels of Conceptual
Interoperability Model (LCIM)" as the underlying model, which is used in
several international projects and was awarded by the Simulation
Interoperability Standards Organization.
I hope the papers are helpful to see where we are going. If there is
interest, we can talk about this in more detail, for example in one of the
ontolog-forum presentations.
All the best
