The development of the semantic web makes the facilitation of agent communication an is- sue of increasing importance. It is often as- sumed that agents are using the same ontol- ogy and hence can understand one another, but the dynamic and distributed nature of the semantic web can mean that this is not al- ways a valid assumption. We describe a sys- tem that can dynamically discover some on- tological mismatches between agents during communication and then refine them, to en- able communication to proceed successfully between these agents.
