This paper describes an extension of semantic matchmaking that aims at maximizing the reuse of agent capabilities over new application domains. Our approach is to use an Agent Capability Description Language (ACDL) not only to describe the requests and the advertised capabilities, but also to describe the domain-models characterizing specific application domains. The description of tasks and capabilities is independent of any particular domain, though a capability can specify the knowledge requirements to be verified by the application domain. Therefore, capabilities can be used by a team to solve a request whenever theirs knowledge requirements are satisfied by the application domain
