On Using Conceptual Modeling for Ontologies [chapter]

S. Spaccapietra, C. Parent, C. Vangenot, N. Cullot
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper analyzes some of the arguments that are relevant to the debate, in particular the question whether conceptual data models would adequately support the design and use of ontologies.  ...  Are database concepts and techniques suitable for ontology design and management? The question has been on the floor for some time already.  ...  The arguments we present here focus on structural aspects, as we are interested in showing the benefits of using conceptual data models for modeling ontologies.  ...

On Using Conceptual Data Modeling for Ontology Engineering [chapter]

Mustafa Jarrar, Jan Demey, Robert Meersman
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper tackles two main disparities between conceptual data schemes and ontologies, which should be taken into account when (re)using conceptual data modeling techniques for building ontologies.  ...  In conceptual data modeling they are commonly called "constraints". Notice that rules can be used for e.g. enforce integrity, derivation and inference, taxonomy, etc.  ...  The authors are grateful to Jan De Bo, Peter Spyns, Sven Van Acker, Ruben Verlinden, Pieter De Leenheer, and Andriy Lisovoy for their comments and suggestions on an earlier version of this paper.  ...

Let's Automate! Making Use of a Learning Ontology for Conceptual Data Modelling

Daria Bogdanova, Monique Snoeck
2019 International Conference on Conceptual Modeling  
In this paper, we describe the steps of development of a learning ontology for conceptual data modelling, define its structure and elements and provide examples of its possible use for systematization  ...  One of the possible solutions to these issues could be systematization and automation of various aspects of conceptual modelling courses, depending on the needs of a particular educator and the target  ...  One of the possible aids to conceptual modelling educators could be the introduction of a learning ontology for conceptual modelling.  ...

Conceptual modeling using domain ontologies

Frederik Gailly, Geert Poels
2010 Proceedings of the 10th Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling - DSM '10  
Using domain ontologies instead of top-level ontologies for ontology-based conceptual modeling, enables the reuse of domain-specific knowledge.  ...  The approach is illustrated for enterprise modeling using UML and the Resource Event Agent (REA) enterprise ontology.  ...  Studies that have used top-level ontologies for evaluating conceptual modeling languages will be discussed further on in the paper (see Background section).  ...

An Integrated Method Using Conceptual Modelling to Generate an Ontology-based Query Mechanism

Ronéll Alberts, Enrico Franconi
2012 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
In particular, the use of ontologies as a conceptual view for the purpose of accessing information stored in underlying data repositories can increase the effectiveness of mechanisms for information querying  ...  This can be achieved by using traditional conceptual modelling techniques to develop a conceptual model of the domain of interest and utilising this to generate an ontology-based query mechanism.  ...  For the second stage, the ORM2OWL translation tool [33] , based on the transformations defined by Franconi et al., was used to translate the ORM conceptual model from the formal ORM2 syntax into an OWL2  ...

Learning The Differences Between Ontologies and Conceptual Schemas Through Ontology-Driven Information Systems

Frederico Fonseca, James Martin
2007 Journal of the AIS  
Recognition of the suggested distinction represents, we think, a natural evolution in the field of modeling, and significant principled guidance for developers and users of information systems.  ...  For Milton, theory-focused ontologies are the ones created using philosophical theory.  ...  Conceptual schemas, on the other hand, refer to the result of the modeling, namely a set of diagrams that use a given conceptual model as a language to express the specific data structures for an application  ...

Using Mathematical Model Theory to Align Conceptual and Operational Ontologies in FIBO

Robert A. Nehmer, Mike Bennett
2018 International Workshop on Value Modeling and Business Ontologies  
We use model theory to formalize the relationships between the symbols of the operationalization and the interpretation of those symbols in the conceptual ontology.  ...  FIBO's intended use is as a conceptual model which would be operationalized in a variety of projects by various players in the financial industry.  ...  to instance data; • Conceptual ontologies cover all the concepts that may be of relevance in some use case -that is, they cover more than one use case; • The role of a conceptual model and the role of  ...

Domain Ontologies: A Database-Oriented Analysis [chapter]

Stéphane Jean, Guy Pierra, Yamine Ait-Ameur
2007 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
If the word ontology is more and more used in a number of domain, the capabilities and benefits of ontology for Information Systems management are still unclear.  ...  Secondly, based on the various approaches of ontology modeling followed by different communities, we propose a taxonomy of domain ontology.  ...  Ontologies Vs conceptual models As both an ontology and a conceptual model define a conceptualization of a part of the world, an ontology seems similar to a conceptual model.  ...

Ontological Evaluation of Conceptual Models

Jörg Becker, Björn Niehaves, Daniel Pfeiffer
2008 Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems  
The need for such an approach to evaluation is justified by the substantial economic importance of conceptual models.  ...  Accordingly, the ontological evaluation of conceptual models is enriched with a linguistic interpretivist perspective.  ...  In such a case, ontologies can only be used to evaluate certain terms or constructs used in the conceptual model, for instance, whether a 'power user' uses an 'information system'.  ...

Conceptual Modelling and Ontology: Possibilities and Pitfalls [chapter]

Ron Weber
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
I will also argue that theories of ontology should be used to provide the theoretical foundation for designing new conceptual modelling grammars.  ...  Some of our predictions have been counterintuitive and contrary to current conceptual modelling practice-for instance, that optional properties should not be used in conceptual models and that attributes  ...  I will also argue that theories of ontology should be used to provide the theoretical foundation for designing new conceptual modelling grammars.  ...
