C-OWL: Contextualizing Ontologies
TLDR
This paper shows how ontologies can be contextualized, thus acquiring certain useful properties that a pure shared approach cannot provide, and develops Context OWL (C-OWL), a language whose syntax and semantics have been obtained by extending the OWLntax and semantics to allow for the representation of contextual ontologies.
Semantic Coordination: A New Approach and an Application
TLDR
A new algorithm for discovering semantic mappings across hierarchical classifications based on a new approach to semantic coordination is proposed based on the problem of deducing relations between sets of logical formulae that represent the meaning of concepts belonging to different models.
Contextual reasoning distilled
TLDR
This paper shows that the mechanisms of contextual reasoning proposed in the literature can be classified into three general forms (called localized reasoning, push and pop, and shifting), and distill two general principles of a logic of contextual Reasoning that can be adequately formalized in the framework of MultiContext Systems.
Specification of a Common Framework for Characterizing Alignment
TLDR
This report describes various approaches towards this goal and shows the relations between them, and provides a description of the alignment sructure and process.

Enabling Distributed Knowledge Management: Managerial and Technological Implications
In this paper we show that the typical architecture of current KM systems reflects an objectivistic epistemology and a traditional managerial control paradigm. We argue that such an objectivistic
Peer-Mediated Distributed Knowledge Management
TLDR
This paper proposes a peer-to-peer architecture (called KEx), which implements a distributed approach to Knowledge Managament in a quite straightforward way, and proposes a first version of the system, called KEx, is implemented as a knowledge exchange level on top of JXTA.
Entity Name System: The Back-Bone of an Open and Scalable Web of Data
TLDR
The role of an ENS in contributing to the scalability of ad-hoc and on demand information integration tasks is focused on.
