A Multi-Ontology Approach for Personal Information Management

Huiyong Xiao, Isabel F. Cruz
2005 International Semantic Web Conference  
In this paper, we propose a layered and semantic ontology-based framework for personal information management, and we discuss its annotations, associations, and navigation.  ...  We also discuss query processing in two cases: query rewriting in a single personal information application, PIA, and that between two PIAs.  ...  Other approaches to PIM include Chandler, 3 Lifestreams [12] , Stuff I've Seen (SIS) [11] , and Xanadu [22] , which focus on different aspects. The rest of the paper is structured as follows.  ...
