Extracting it minimal relevant segment of an extensive domain ontology is an often recurring problem in ontology engineering. We present a software solution to this problem that is the combination of an ontology-independent user interface generator and a module implementing an ontology segmentation algorithm. We describe the algorithm and compare it with other ontology segmentation methods proposed in the literature.

Modularization: a Key for the Dynamic Selection of Relevant Knowledge Components
TLDR
This paper investigates how modularization can be integrated with ontology selection techniques and designs and implements a modularization algorithm which, unlike many existing approaches, is tightly integrated in a concrete tool.
Ontology module extraction for ontology reuse: an ontology engineering perspective
TLDR
A novel approach to ontology module extraction is presented that aims to achieve more efficient reuse of very large ontologies and is implemented in ModTool; a tool that produces ontology modules via extraction.
Formal Ontology and Information Systems
TLDR
It is argued in this paper that so-called ontologies present their own methodo- logical and architectural peculiarities: on the methodological side, their main peculiarity is the adoption of a highly interdisciplinary approach, while on the architectural side the most interesting aspect is the centrality of the role they can play in an information system, leading to the perspective of ontology-driven information systems.
Web ontology segmentation: analysis, classification and use
TLDR
This technique takes advantage of the detailed semantics captured within an OWL ontology to produce highly relevant segments from large description logic ontologies for the purposes of increasing tractability for both humans and computers.
Structure-Based Partitioning of Large Concept Hierarchies
TLDR
This paper proposes a method for automatically partitioning large ontologies into smaller modules based on the structure of the class hierarchy and shows that the structure-based method performs surprisingly well on real-world ontologies.
Just the right amount: extracting modules from ontologies
TLDR
It is shown that the problem of determining whether a subset of an ontology is a module for a given vocabulary is undecidable even for rather restricted sub-languages of OWL DL, and a definition of a module that guarantees to completely capture the meaning of a given set of terms is proposed.
Semantic Modularity and Module Extraction in Description Logics
TLDR
This paper defines two notions of a module whose independence is formalised in a model-theoretic way and develops algorithms for module extraction, for checking whether a part of a terminology is a module, and for a number of related problems.
Toward the Use of an Upper Ontology for U.S. Government and U.S. Military Domains: An Evaluation
TLDR
This paper attempts to examine current candidate standard upper ontologies and assess their applicability for a U.S. Government or U.s. Military domain.
Ontologies for Knowledge Modeling and Creating User Interface in the Framework of Telemedical Portal
TLDR
The overall architecture of the telemedical portal is presented and it is shown how the generic teleconsultation service stores information and automatically creates the user interface using the provided knowledge base.
Approach for a Rule Based System for Capturing and Usage of Knowledge in the Manufacturing Industry
TLDR
A software application for capturing and re-using rule based knowledge concerning manufacturing machine services and furthermore to support an open and easy to implement data exchange and communication process is described.
