Adapt OWL as a Modular Ontology Language

Jie Bao, Vasant G. Honavar
2006 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
OWL, the most commonly used web ontology language, has limited provision for handling modular ontologies.  ...  We propose an alternative to owl:imports, namely, semantic importing, for linking multiple modular ontologies with support for localized semantics, partial ontology reuse, and distributed reasoning.  ...  Introduction The semantic web relies on shared ontologies for interoperability of a network of loosely coupled, distributed, autonomous information sources and services.  ...

OWL/ZIP: Distributing Large and Modular Ontologies

Nicolas Matentzoglu, Bijan Parsia
2014 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
Deploying, importing and using such ontologies can be a problem, both in terms of bandwidth and load time over the web, and in terms of physically storing them.  ...  In this paper, we are proposing a set of simple conventions to distribute ontologies (monolithic or modular) in a canonical fashion to enable tools to make use of pre-compiled modular structures and reduce  ...  Conclusions and Future Work We have proposed a convention to distribute large monolithic and modular ontologies in a compressed form (OWL/ZIP).  ...

Towards a Comprehensive Modular Ontology IDE and Tool Suite

Cogan Shimizu
2018 International Semantic Web Conference  
To meet these needs, this PhD project explores the development of a comprehensive modular ontology IDE and tool suite.  ...  This may be due to too strong or too weak ontological commitments; one way to prevent this is to engineer the ontology to be modular, thus allowing users to more easily adapt ontologies to their own individual  ...  The author acknowledges funding from the Dayton Area Graduate Studies Institute (DAGSI) and thanks Pascal Hitzler for his significant input.  ...

The modular SSN ontology: A joint W3C and OGC standard specifying the semantics of sensors, observations, sampling, and actuation

Armin Haller, Krzysztof Janowicz, Simon J.D. Cox, Maxime Lefrançois, Kerry Taylor, Danh Le Phuoc, Joshua Lieberman, Raúl García-Castro, Rob Atkinson, Claus Stadler, Pascal Hitzler
2018 Semantic Web Journal  
The joint W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) and OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) Spatial Data on the Web (SDW) Working Group developed a set of ontologies to describe sensors, actuators, samplers as well  ...  The set of ontologies adopts a modular architecture with SOSA as a self-contained core that is extended by SSN and other modules to add expressivity and breadth.  ...  Acknowledgements The SSN ontology was developed through the OGC/W3C Spatial Data on the Web Working Group, see https://www. for the list of members.  ...

Evaluating Formalisms for Modular Ontologies in Distributed Information Systems [chapter]

Yimin Wang, Jie Bao, Peter Haase, Guilin Qi
Web Reasoning and Rule Systems  
We compare different formalisms for modular ontologies in their ability to support networked, dynamic and distributed ontologies, as well as the reasoning capability over these ontologies.  ...  In this paper, we investigate state-of-the-art technologies in the area of modular ontologies and corresponding logical formalisms.  ...  We appreciate the fruitful discussion and comments from our colleagues.  ...

Enhancing semantic search using case-based modular ontology

Nesrine Ben Mustapha, Hajer Baazaoui Zghal, Marie-Aude Aufaure, Henda Ben Ghezala
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '10  
The main contribution of this work is the use of a CBR mechanism and an ontological representation for two purposes: Resource Retrieval from Web and ontology enrichment from cases.  ...  In this paper, we present a semantic search approach based on Case-based modular Ontology.  ...  Modular ontologies used for the domain case representation and indexing are also incrementally enriched using text mining techniques.  ...

Contextual Ontology Module Learning from Web Snippets and Past User Queries [chapter]

Nesrine Ben Mustapha, Marie-Aude Aufaure, Hajer Baazaoui Zghal, Henda Ben Ghezala
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we focus on modularization aspects for query reformulation in ontology-based question answering on the Web.  ...  Indeed, the main problem is that current approaches of ontology modularization consider only the input existant ontologies, instead of underlying semantics found in texts.  ...  First, the existing approaches of ontology modularization rely on static ontologies that can be inconsistent to cover basically user's need for information search on the Web.  ...
