Cross-organisational interoperability is a key issue for success in B2B e-commerce applications. To achieve this interoperability, choreography descriptions are necessary that describe how the business partners can cooperate. In existing approaches, these choreography descriptions are independent of the internal workflows of the partners. We present a framework for extracting choreography interface descriptions from internal workflow models. Our approach comprises two steps: first we map internal workflow models into a intermediary formal model, then we generate choreography interfaces from it. In this paper we present m3pl, an ontology extension based upon the First Order Ontology for Web Services (FLOWS) . The extensions provide relations to model workflow views and choreography interfaces.
