Conference paper


This paper presents an approach to model ontologies for the e-Government domain as a basis for an integrated e-Government environment. These ontologies can be used to assist a citizen in formally expressing a goal that can in turn be used for service discovery on the one hand and can also be used to express the necessary input of services that la-is the basis for the subsequent form generation on the other hand. The collected input data is then transformed into a common data interchange standard format and forwarded to the SOA backend that executes the actual business process.
