In business process modelling, it is known that using a consistent labelling style and vocabulary improves process model quality. In this regard, several existing approaches aim at the linguistic support for labelling model elements. At the same time, domain-specific ontologies have been proposed and used to capture important process-related knowledge. However, these two areas are largely disconnected up to now. Although some research suggests annotating ontology concepts to process models, for… 
Ontology-Based Process Modelling - Will we live to see it?
In theory, ontology-based process modelling (OBPM) bares great potential to extend business process management. Many works have studied OBPM and are clear on the potential amenities, such as
Significance Level of a Big Data Query by Exploiting Business Processes and Strategies
The results produced by the proposed approach using a business case study show the queries that are associated with more important business processes and higher priority strategies have higher significance levels, vindicates the application of the significance level in a query to dynamically scale the semantic information use in capturing the appropriate level of deep insight and relevant information required for a business organisation.
A systematic literature review of process modeling guidelines and their empirical support
This analysis provides guidance for practitioners and scholars on which guidelines to use while modeling a process and perform further research on by analyzing the empirical evidence and variables associated with each guideline.

User-Friendly Semantic Annotation in Business Process Modeling
This paper presents an approach that allows flexibly annotating semantics in a user-friendly way, by exposing ontological knowledge to the business user in appropriate forms and by employing matchmaking and filtering techniques to display options with high relevance only.
An Ontology-Driven Process Modeling Framework
This paper proposes a framework that supports the designer in the definition and in the analysis of complex processes by means of several facilities for reusing, customizing and generalizing existent process components, providing a semantic vision of the application context and of the processes themselves.
Knowledge Acquisition from EPC Models for Extraction of Process Patterns in Engineering Domains
The presented approach is characterized by exploiting the implicit semantics of natural language terms associated with EPC model elements to analyze the lexical structure of these terms and to relate them to instances of a reference ontology.
Unified Enterprise Knowledge Representation with Conceptual Models - Capturing Corporate Language in Naming Conventions
This work formalizes naming conventions combining domain thesauri and phrase structures based on a linguistic grammar that allows for guiding modelers automatically during the modeling process using standardized labels for model elements, thus assuring unified enterprise knowledge representation.
A Generic Approach for the Semantic Annotation of Conceptual Models Using a Service-Oriented Architecture
A generic service oriented architecture that allows to annotate elements of conceptual models with concepts from formal semantic schemata and can act as an integration platform for other tools working on models and ontologies is described.
Towards the Automated Annotation of Process Models
This paper presents the first approach for automatically annotating process models with the concepts of a taxonomy, and builds on the corpus-based method of second-order similarity, different similarity functions, and a Markov Logic formalization.
Knowledge Engineering: Principles and Methods
Formal Ontology and Information Systems
It is argued in this paper that so-called ontologies present their own methodological 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.
A Methodology for Data Schema Integration in the Entity Relationship Model
An enriched entity relationship model is chosen as the data model for schema integration, and several types of conflicts between the different user schemata are checked and solved.
