The lack of well-founded constructs in ontology tools can lead to the construction of non-intended models. In this demonstration we present the Menthor Editor, an ontology-driven conceptual modelling platform which incorporates the theories of the Unified Foundational Ontology (UFO). We illustrate how UFO categories can improve the design of domain(More)
Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are currently recognized as one of the most important causes of nosocomial infections worldwide, principally related to bloodstream infections (Pfaller et al., 1999). Staphylococcus epidermidis is the most frequent CoNS species associated with these infections (Rupp & Archer, 1994), but results of surveillance studies(More)
Lung cancer (LC) ranks as the most prevalent and deadliest cause of cancer death worldwide. Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, depending on LC staging, without specific highlight. The aim was to evaluate the effects of X-radiation in three LC cell lines. H69, A549 and H1299 cell lines were cultured and irradiated with(More)
The construction of large-scale reference conceptual models is a complex engineering activity. To develop high-quality models, a modeler must have the support of expressive engineering tools such as theoretically well-founded modeling languages and methodologies, patterns and anti-patterns and automated support environments. This paper proposes Semantic(More)
The preparation of high quality emergency plans to guide operational decisions is an approach to mitigate the emergency management complexity. In such multidisciplinary scenario, teams with different perspectives need to collaborate towards a common goal and interact within a common understanding. In this scenario, the characterization of the variability of(More)
Enterprise information systems are increasingly being conceived as a combination of existing systems and to work as a part of an ecosystem of software products. This change demands methods and tools to deal with the challenging semantic interoperability issues. OntoUML is a well-founded modeling language that allows modelers to formalize world-views in a(More)
