I was working on a similar model to years ago.  It is attached.  I am glad to see I was not out to lunch completely.  While I never gave a lot of thought to my work, in order for interoperability to happen, some form of understanding must be incorporated into a model.  The old OSI stack completely (and perhaps wisely) ignored this aspect of interoperability.

One day when I have put enough time in writing code and architecting, I hope to get an engineering fellowship type job and be able to work on stuff like this full time.

Hi all,
Together with John Miller I am editing a special issue of the journal of simulation focusing on the use of ontological means in support of interoperability. I hope that some of you know the Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conceptual_interoperability <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conceptual_interoperability> ) which we successful used to make people aware that you have to capture your entities, relations, processes, and constraints (including axioms) in machine-understandable form, which means logic, which means ontological means.
Some possible topics discussed in this forum already are
  • Can we embed our models into a common conceptual model of the operation space (upper ontology)?
  • Can we capture model ambassadors as intelligent agents arguing about composability using ontological means?
  • Is the ontological spectrum sufficient for this kind of application?
  • Should we capture requirements as ontology artifacts to enable machine understandability?
  • And many more

The official call for papers is accessible via the website http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jos/index.html <http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jos/index.html>  
I would like to see some of our discussions featured in archived form.
Also, I am always looking for volunteers helping me as peer reviewers (hint, hint).
All the best
