Conceptual modeling using domain ontologies

Frederik Gailly, Geert Poels
2010 Proceedings of the 10th Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling - DSM '10  
In this paper an additional step is taken towards ontology-based conceptual modeling by using ontologies that specify conceptualizations of material domains.  ...  The approach is illustrated for enterprise modeling using UML and the Resource Event Agent (REA) enterprise ontology.  ...  conceptual modeling language, i.e. an ontologically well-founded modeling language whose use is not restricted to a particular material domain.  ...

Transforming Between UML Conceptual Models and OWL 2 Ontologies

Jesper Zedlitz, Norbert Luttenberger
2012 International Semantic Web Conference  
The ISO 19103 standard-defining rules and guidelines for conceptual modeling in the geographic domain-has deliberately chosen the Unified Modeling Language (UML) as "conceptual schema language" for geographic  ...  From today's perspective-i.e. when taking into account today's mature semantic web technology-another language might also be envisioned as language for specifying applicationoriented conceptual models,  ...  Using our transformations the implementation could be based on either an existing UML conceptual model or a newly created OWL 2 ontology or even using alternate editing in UML and OWL 2.  ...

Adapted Rules for UML Modelling of Geospatial Information for Model-Driven Implementation as OWL Ontologies

Jetlund, Onstein, Huang
2019 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
Methods for conversion from UML to OWL for basic concepts used in models of geospatial information have been studied and evaluated.  ...  The proposed solution is formalized in a UML profile supported by rules and recommendations and demonstrated with a UML model based on the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) standard ISO 14825 Geographic  ...  Acknowledgments: Rune Hjelsvold provided invaluable support to the state-of-the-art-study for this article.

Using the Unified Foundational Ontology (UFO) as a Foundation for General Conceptual Modeling Languages [chapter]

Giancarlo Guizzardi, Gerd Wagner
2010 Theory and Applications of Ontology: Computer Applications  
In this paper we present a philosophically and cognitively well-founded formal ontology which has been developed with the special purpose of serving as a foundation for general conceptual modeling languages  ...  In recent years, there has been a growing interest in approaches that employ ontological models as theoretical tools for analyzing and improving conceptual modeling languages.  ...  In the sequel, we discuss briefly how these problems have been solved to produce an ontologically well-founded version of UML for conceptual modeling [1] .  ...

Visual Modeling of OWL DL Ontologies Using UML [chapter]

Sara Brockmans, Raphael Volz, Andreas Eberhart, Peter Löffler
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Similarly, we invent a UML profile, which allows to visually model OWL ontologies in a notation that is close to the UML notation. This allows to develop ontologies using UML tools.  ...  Throughout the paper, the significant differences to some earlier proposals for a visual, UML-based notation for ontologies are discussed. 1 Which can be seen as a direct result of the criticisms about  ...  We would like to thank our colleagues for discussion as well as the reviewers for the ISWC conference for valuable comments on our paper.  ...

SPARQLAS - Implementing SPARQL Queries with OWL Syntax

Mark Schneider
2010 International Conference on Software Technology: Methods and Tools
