Enriching business process models with semantic tags taken from an ontology has become a crucial necessity in service provisioning, integration and composition. In this paper we propose to represent semantically labelled business processes as part of a knowledge base that formalises: business process structure, business domains, and a set of criteria(More)
Enriching business process models with semantic annotations taken from an ontology has become a crucial necessity both in service provisioning, integration and composition, and in business processes management. In our work we represent semantically annotated business processes as part of an OWL knowledge base that formalises the business process structure,(More)
Enterprise modelling focuses on the construction of a structured description, the so-called enterprise model, which represents aspects relevant to the activity of an enterprise. Although it has become clearer recently that enterprise modelling is a collaborative activity, involving a large number of people, most of the enterprise modelling tools still only(More)
In this paper we describe a formal ontological description of the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN), one of the most popular languages for business process modelling. The proposed ontology (the BPMN Ontology) provides a classification of all the elements of BPMN, together with the formal description of the attributes and conditions describing how(More)
It is nowadays well-established that the construction of quality domain ontologies benefits from the involvement in the modelling process of more actors, possibly having different roles and skills. To be effective, the collaboration between these actors has to be fostered, enabling each of them to actively and readily participate to the development of the(More)
We present a wiki-based collaborative environment for the semi-automatic incremental building of ontologies. The system relies on an existing platform, which has been extended with a component for terminology extraction from domain-specific textual corpora and with a further step aimed at matching the extracted concepts with pre-existing structured and(More)
Encoding guidelines and treatment protocols in formal and computer-executable form is not a trivial task and requires the collaboration between clinicians and knowledge engineers. In this paper, we describe CliP-MoKi, a Semantic Media Wiki (SMW)-based tool for the collaborative encoding in a distributed environment of cancer treatment protocols in Asbru.(More)
We present a novel system for corpus-based terminological evaluation of ontologies. Starting from the assumption that a domain of interest can be represented through a corpus of text documents, we first extract a list of domain-specific key-concepts from the corpus, rank them by relevance, and then apply various evaluation metrics to assess the(More)
Semantically annotating business processes is about enriching the elements of a process description (e.g., activities, events) with annotations taken from an ontology defining the domain semantics of the elements of the process. Semantic annotations enable to provide business analysts with tools and services that, by exploiting automated reasoning and(More)
