The aim of this paper is to present the Human-Centered Ontology Engineering Methodology (HCOME) for the development and evaluation of living ontologies in the context of communities of knowledge workers  ...  The development of ontologies must be seen as a dynamic process that in most of the cases starts with an initial rough ontology that is later revised, refined, enriched, populated and filled in with details  ...  , on their own as well as in collaboration with colleagues [1] .  ...

The role of culture in collaborative ontology design

Linda Anticoli, Elio Toppano
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Intelligent Semantic Web-Services and Applications - ISWSA '11  
A preliminary analysis conducted on six well known collaborative systems confirms some of the findings.  ...  Hypotheses are formulated concerning the influence of cultural differences in the definition of ontology, its conceptual organisation and the design process.  ...  Hcome employs a well structured conversational model (inspired to IBIS) which is embodied in the system; discussion is based on a limited set of general primitives (e.g. position, argument, issue, ...)  ...

An Argumentation Ontology for DIstributed, Loosely-controlled and evolvInG Engineering processes of oNTologies (DILIGENT) [chapter]

Christoph Tempich, H. Sofia Pinto, York Sure, Steffen Staab
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present an ontology which formalizes the main concepts which are used in an DILIGENT ontology engineering discussion and thus enables tracking arguments and allows for inconsistency detection  ...  A prerequisite to the success of the Semantic Web are shared ontologies which enable the seamless exchange of information between different parties. Engineering a shared ontology is a social process.  ...  Research reported in this paper has been financed by EU in the the IST project SEKT (IST-2003-506826).  ...

Ontology Engineering and Evolution in a Distributed World Using DILIGENT [chapter]

H. Sofia Pinto, C. Tempich, Steffen Staab
2009 Handbook on Ontologies  
an iteration back and forth between construction/modification and use and ontologies should support the participation of non-expert users in ontology engineering processes.  ...  Existing mature ontology engineering approaches are based on some basic assumptions that are often neglected in practice.  ...  Changes proposed by the user may indeed have found their way into the common ontology. Hence, the user should be enabled to use from now on the shared model instead of his own identical model.  ...

Ontology Engineering Revisited: An Iterative Case Study [chapter]

Christoph Tempich, H. Sofia Pinto, Steffen Staab
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Existing mature ontology engineering approaches are based on some basic assumptions that are often violated in practice, in particular in the Semantic Web.  ...  While recently there have been some initial proposals to consider these issues, they lack the appropriate rigor of mature approaches. i.e. these recent proposals lack the appropriate depth of methodological  ...  The argumentation for a different way of modelling was straightforward, because the board found a Counter Example in the form of a document dealing with Legislation, which was not a Circular.  ...

On the Development of Knowledge Management Services for Collaborative Decision Making

Christina E. Evangelou, Nikos Karacapilidis, Manolis Tzagarakis
2006 Journal of Computers  
Based on a properly defined ontology model, our approach is supported by a web-based tool that serves as a forum of reciprocal knowledge exchange, conveyed through structured argumentative discourses,  ...  Admitting that the quality of a decision depends on the quality of the knowledge used to make it, it is argued that the enhancement of the decision making efficiency and effectiveness is strongly related  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work has been partially funded by the Palette IST FP6-2004.  ...

2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also provide a brief discussion on how this view model is utilized in the design and construction of materialized ontology views to support extraction of sub-ontologies.  ...  First we outline the view model, its properties and some modeling issues, followed by some discussions on modeling such views (at the conceptual level).  ...  Modeling Conceptual Views In this paper, to model conceptual views, we use XSemantic nets. Other modeling notations used to model conceptual views can be found in [38] .  ...
