Conceptual Analysis of Hypertext [article]

Robert E. Kent, Christian Neuss
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Various processes for the conceptual structuring of hypertext are discussed: summarization, conceptual scaling, and the creation of conceptual links.  ...  The automatic hyperization of the content of legacy data is described, and the composite conceptual structuring with hypertext linkage is defined.  ...  The use of conceptual knowledge systems is a natural outgrowth of the original formal concept analysis approach for structuring and organizing the networked information resources in the World Wide Web  ...

That IS-IN Isn't IS-A: A Further Analysis of Taxonomic Links in Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Jari Palomki, Hannu Kangassalo
2012 Advances in Knowledge Representation  
Accordingly, in this Chapter we are considering an intensional IS-IN relation which also forms a taxonomic hierarchy and a lattice-like structure.  ...  On the other hand, this IS-IN relation, unlike IS-A relation, is a conceptual relation between concepts, and it is basically intensional in its character.  ...  iFa}. www.intechopen.com An intensional containment relation Now, the relations between concepts enable us to make conceptual structures.  ...

Managing the Evolution of Aspect-Oriented Software with Model-Based Pointcuts [chapter]

Andy Kellens, Kim Mens, Johan Brichau, Kris Gybels
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We tackle this problem by declaring pointcuts in terms of a conceptual model of the base program, rather than defining them directly in terms of how the base program is structured.  ...  In addition, the conceptual model provides a means to verify where and why potential fragile pointcut conflicts occur, by imposing structural and semantic constraints on the conceptual model, that can  ...  Acknowledgements The authors appreciate the feedback received on previous drafts of this paper.  ...

Gnoseology-based Approach to Foundations of Informatics

Mykola Nikitchenko
2011 International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies in Education, Research, and Industrial Applications  
On the conceptual level we propose to elucidate basic notions of informatics in integrity of their intensional and extensional aspects.  ...  In the paper we propose to use a gnoseology-based approach for developing methodological, conceptual, and formal levels of foundations.  ...  This approach specifies methodological, conceptual, and formal levels of foundations.  ...

A Taxonomy of Classification Approaches in IS Research

Aurona Gerber, Richard L. Baskerville, Alta van der Merwe
2017 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
ToCA provides a language for scholars to describe and comment, as well as understand the impact of the diverse adoption of classification approaches within IS research.  ...  The main contribution of the paper is a proposed taxonomy of classification approaches (ToCA) that was validated by classifying approaches in relevant publications in three IS journals.  ...  A formal classification approach (extensional or intensional) is rigorous and the resulting classification artifact is usually a structured, multi-level, hierarchical, exhaustive and exclusive taxonomy  ...

Ontology and Ontology Construction: Background and Practices

Terje Aaberge, Rajendra Akerkar
2012 International Journal of Computer Science and Applications  
We also present two ways of conceiving ontology construction and ultimately, we survey common categories in the construction methods of ontology learning.  ...  This paper presents a view-point on the notion of 'ontology' and of ontology construction. Ontology construction cannot be seen in isolation, but must be considered in relation to its use.  ...  An ontology is a linguistic representation of the structural properties of a conceptual model for a domain of discourse.  ...

Mathematical Knowledge Representation: Semantic Models and Formalisms [article]

Alexander Elizarov and Alexander Kirillovich and Evgeny Lipachev and Olga Nevzorova and Valery Solovyev and Nikita Zhiltsov
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The paper provides a survey of semantic methods for solution of fundamental tasks in mathematical knowledge management. Ontological models and formalisms are discussed.  ...  We propose an ontology of mathematical knowledge, covering a wide range of fields of mathematics. We demonstrate applications of this representation in mathematical formula search, and learning.  ...  Kirillovich would like to thank Evelina Khakimova (University of Virginia), Claudia Acevedo (Lemoine Editores), and Maria Isabel Duarte (EAFIT University) for the assistance in the work with bibliographic  ...

The Relation between a Framework for Collaborative Ontology Engineering and Nicola Guarino's Terminology and Ideas in "Formal Ontology and Information Systems"

Christophe Debruyne
2013 Web Science Conference  
In this paper, we investigate the relation between Guarino's seminal paper "Formal Ontology and Information Systems" and the DOGMA ontology-engineering framework.  ...  As DOGMA is geared towards the development of ontologies for semantic interoperation between autonomously developed and maintained information systems, it follows that the stakeholders in this project  ...  An intensional interpretation of a language is by means of a structure C, I , where C = D, W, R is a conceptualization and I : V → D ∪ R a function assigning elements of D to constant symbols of V and  ...

An intensional perspective on the semantic and pragmatic web

Terje Aaberge, Rajendra Akerkar, Harold Boley
2011 International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies  
After preliminary sketches and initial ideas, more formal attempts at characterising and defining pragmatic aspects of the web have recently emerged.  ...  Although some amount of scientific research and a number of applications have appeared under the name of the pragmatic web, there is not yet a common agreement on what the pragmatic web should be and how  ...  The method is based on an intensional formal semantics (Aaberge, 2009 (Aaberge, , 2010)) , i.e., a semantics that conceives the structure of the language to be determined via the conceptual model of the  ...

Means to support the object traces in the conceptual modeling systems

L. Yu. Ismailova, S. V. Kosikov, V. E. Wolfengagen, J. V. Mazurova
2018 International Journal of Engineering & Technology  
The paper considers the problem of conceptual modeling of the domains, in which a large number of changes takes place, possesses a number of specific features.  ...  The paper presents an approach to the deter- mination and the support to the traces, based on using a combination of methods of the intensional logic and applicative computational systems.  ...  Description of the object traces The trace of the state in the proposed system is formalized as a relation on the set Asg. The intensional operator is the formal means to work with the object trace.  ...
