Semantic interoperability between applications, systems, organizations, and communities appears today as a crucial feature that should allow their intelligent communications with a minimum or completely without human interventions. In this paper we introduce our common concept for a semantic interoperable middleware kernel that may satisfy the requirements of many different applications. Finally, a short overview of implementation for two different domains (GIS and B2B) has given.
