This paper first discusses the concept of information mediation and typical mediation architecture. Two major mediation research projects, TSIMMIS and MIX, and their limitations, are discussed. Meta-model, a way for exchanging meta-data, is then introduced for the purpose of improving information mediation. Finally, a meta-model based mediation approach is proposed.
