Formal Support for Representing and Automating Semantic Interoperability [chapter]

Yannis Kalfoglou, Marco Schorlemmer
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We argue for a theoretical framework that favours the analysis and implementation of semantic interoperability scenarios relative to particular understandings of semantics.  ...  We discuss approaches to semantic heterogeneity and propose a formalisation of semantic interoperability based on the Barwise-Seligman theory of information flow.  ...  Schorlemmer is supported by a 'Ramón y Cajal' Fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology.  ...

Ontologies and semantics for seamless connectivity

Michael Uschold, Michael Gruninger
2004 SIGMOD record  
We give a detailed introduction to ontologies, summarize the current state of the art for applying ontologies to achieve semantic connectivity and highlight some key challenges.  ...  In this paper, we argue that ontologies in particular and semantics-based technologies in general will play a key role in achieving seamless connectivity.  ...  Phil Bernstein, AnHai Doan, and several others helped clarify the differences between DB schema and ontologies.  ...

Semantically driven service interoperability for pervasive computing

Declan O'Sullivan, David Lewis
2003 Proceedings of the 3rd ACM international workshop on Data engineering for wireless and mobile access - MobiDe '03  
An interoperability problem of a similar scale is presented by the desire for a Semantic Web supporting autonomous machine communication over the WWW.  ...  This poses a very large interoperability problem for which solutions reliant solely on interoperability standards will not scale.  ...  However as ontologies represent semantics, then semantic interoperability can be achieved by runtime comparison of and inference about ontological information.  ...

Ontology-Based Exchange of Product Data Semantics

L. Patil, D. Dutta, R. Sriram
2005 IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering  
Current limitations and the directions for further research are discussed.  ...  First, product information is formalized into an explicit, extensible, and comprehensive product semantics representation language (PSRL). The PSRL is open and based on standard W3C constructs.  ...  Gruninger from NIST for his insight and expertise. They also thank all of the reviewers who helped to improve this publication through their feedback.  ...

Making use of upper ontologies to foster interoperability between SKOS concept schemes

Salvador Sanchez‐Alonso, Elena Garcia‐Barriocanal, Miguel‐Angel Sicilia
2006 Online information review (Print)  
Although it provides a basic framework for building concept schemes, SKOS does not carry the strictly defined semantics of formal ontology languages and thus has a number of shortcomings to fully port  ...  The SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) Core is a model for representing thesauri and similar types of knowledge organization systems as RDF graphs.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is supported by the LUISA EU project (FP6-027149) and also receives support from the University of Alcalá (project UAH-PI2005-070) and the Spanish Ministry of Education (project  ...

Project Abstract: Logic Atlas and Integrator (LATIN) [chapter]

Mihai Codescu, Fulya Horozal, Michael Kohlhase, Till Mossakowski, Florian Rabe
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
LATIN aims at developing methods, techniques, and tools for interfacing logics and related formal systems.  ...  The Base theory represents the type of formulas and the notion of truth for them.  ...  When browsing it, keep in mind that the logical framework, the formalizations in it, and the whole infrastructure processing them are ongoing work and thus subject to both constant improvement and temporary  ...

An ontology-driven communication architecture for spontaneous interoperability in Home Automation systems

J. Juarez, J. A. Rodriguez-Mondejar, R. Garcia-Castro
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 IEEE Emerging Technology and Factory Automation (ETFA)  
Current solutions to the interoperability problem in Home Automation systems are based on a priori agreements where protocols are standardized and later integrated through specific gateways.  ...  The architecture has been validated through a prototype and the main challenges for achieving complete spontaneous interoperability are also evaluated. KB 2 1 HTTP ^L^ | Client | D || D || D |  ...  For instance, some ontologies can represent the state of a device with a simple data attribute of a Device class, while others use a different class for representing states and then relate it with Device  ...

Interoperable metadata semantics with meta-metadata

Yin Qu, Andruid Kerne, Andrew M. Webb, Aaron Herstein
2011 Proceedings of the 11th ACM symposium on Document engineering - DocEng '11  
We write a short meta-search program for integrating the search results, reranking them, and providing formatted HTML output. This provides an extensible formal and functional semantics for search.  ...  A use case involving integrating results from search engines illustrates how the meta-metadata language facilitates interoperable metadata semantics. Formal semantics can be hard to obtain directly.  ...  The meta-metadata runtime automates the process of structurally extracting, translating, and connecting metadata semantics to applications, supporting software development.  ...
