Abstract: By its very nature, financial information. like the money that it represtens, changes hadns.Each player in the financial industry, each bank, stock exchange, government agency, or insurance company operates its own financial information system or systems. Therefore the interoperation of financial information systems is the cornerstone of the finaicial services they support. E-services frameworks, such as web services, are an unprecedented opportunity for the flexible interperation of financial systems. Naturally the critical economic role and the complexity of financial information led to the development of various standards. Yet standards alone are not the panacea: different groups of players use different standards or different interpertations of the same standard. We believe that the solution lies in the convergence of flexible E-services such as web-services and semantically rich meta-data as promised by the semantic Web; then a mediation architecture can be used for the documentation, identification, and resolution of semantic conflicts arising from the interoperation of heterogeneous financial services. In this paper we illustrate the nature of the problem in the Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP)industry and the viability of the solution we propose. We describe and analyze the intergration of services using four different formats: the IFX, OFX and SWIFT standards, and an example proprietary format. To accomplish this intergration we use the Context INterchange (COIN) framework. The COIN architecture leverages a model of sources and receives' contexts in reference to a rich domain model or ontology for the description and resolution of semantic heterogeneity.
