D5.4.2. Revision and Extension of the NeOn Methodology for Building Contextualized Ontology Networks

  title={D5.4.2. Revision and Extension of the NeOn Methodology for Building Contextualized Ontology Networks},
  author={Mari Carmen Su{\'a}rez-Figueroa},
This deliverable presents the second version of the NeOn methodology for building ontology networks. This version extends the previous one presented in D5.4.1 [80] providing methodological guidelines for: developing and creating ontology networks, reusing and re-engineering non-ontological resources, reusing ontology design patterns, modularizing ontologies, evaluating ontologies, evolving ontologies, and localizing ontologies. 

Ontology Engineering Methodology

The methodology serves as a scaffold for Part B “Ontology Engineering” of the handbook and shows where more specific concerns of ontology engineering find their place and how they are related in the overall process.

Neon: Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies Priority: Ist-2004-2.4.7 — " Semantic-based Knowledge and Content Systems " D2.5.2 Pattern Based Ontology Design: Methodology and Software Support Neon Consortium Work Package Participants

This deliverable presents the latest results about the exploitation of ontology design patterns in ontological design, with particular focus on software support.

Methods and Tools for Ontology Building, Learning and Integration - Application in the SYNAT Project

This work has started building an experimental platform where different kinds of stored knowledge will be modeled with the use of ontologies, e.g. reference/system ontology, domain ontologies and auxiliary knowledge including lexical language ontology layers.

Experiments on pattern-based ontology design

The main positive conclusions when using Content ODPs include: ontology developers perceived them as useful, ontology quality is improved, ontological quality isimproved, coverage of the task increases, usability isImproved, and common modelling mistakes can be avoided.

Methods and Tools for Ontology Building , Learning and Integration – Application in the SYNAT Project 1

The paper makes a contribution to understanding semantically modeled knowledge and its incorporation into the SYNAT project by presenting a review of ontology building, learning, and integration methods and their potential application in the project.

Building a Domain Ontology from Glossaries: A General Methodology

The methodology phases are described and applied to a real-world example from the medical domain and the particular feature is in the parallel construction of a domain ontology and a complete domain terminology.

Approaches to ontology development by non ontology experts

A Natural Language (NL) guided approach based on a repository of Lexico-Syntactic Patterns associated to consensual modelling solutions, i.e., Ontology Design Patterns is proposed, which helps untrained users formulate in NL what they want to model in the ontology, and obtain the corresponding design pattern for the modelling issue.

Dependencies between ontology design parameters

Ontology development methodologies provide scenarios, but they do not address the dependencies between the permutations at the different stages in the development process, so the efficiency and effectiveness of this endeavour is improved.

A Pattern-based Ontology Building Method for Ambient Environments

This paper introduces a Pattern-based Ontology Building Method for Ambient Environments (POnA) and exemplifies this method through the development of a domain-specific ontology for cosmetic products within ambient shopping environments.

Making Ontology Relationships Explicit in a Ontology Network

This paper formally defines the different relationships among the networked ontologies and shows how they can be modeled as an ontology network in a case study of the health domain.



Cicero: Tracking Design Rationale in Collaborative Ontology Engineering

The Cicero tool is presented, that facilitates efficient discussions and accelerates the convergence to decisions and helps to improve the documentation of an ontology.

Towards a Glossary of Activities in the Ontology Engineering Field

The consensus reaching process followed within the Ne on consortium for the identification and definition of the activities involved in the ontology network development process produces the NeOn Glossary of Activities, which is a standardization of the Ontology Engineering terminology.

Consistent Evolution of OWL Ontologies

A model for the semantics of change for OWL ontologies, considering structural, logical, and user-defined consistency is presented, and resolution strategies to ensure that consistency is maintained as the ontology evolves are introduced.

Using explicit ontologies in KBS development

The main message is that early in the knowledge engineering process an application-specific ontology should be constructed, and some principles for organizing a library of reusable ontological theories which can be configured into an application ontology are presented.

ModOnto: A Tool for Modularizing Ontologies

This paper presents a concrete tool that incorporates an approach to ontology modularization that inherits some of the main principles from object-oriented software engineering, which are encapsulation and information hiding.

An approach for ontology modularization

This paper presents a concrete tool that incorporates an approach to ontology modularization that inherits some of the main principles from object-oriented softwareengineering, which are encapsulation and information hiding.

Semi-automatic Integration of Learned Ontologies into a Collaborative Framework

A novel ontology lifecycle scenario that explicitly takes the dynamics and data-intensiveness of real world applications into account is presented, which bases mainly on automatic negotiation of agreed alignments, inconsistency resolution, an ontology versioning system and support of natural language generation tools.

Towards Correspondence Patterns for Ontology Mediation

This paper defines a pattern template and uses it to develop a correspondence patterns library, meant to be used in ontology alignment systems, in order to support the user or improve matching algorithms to refine ontology alignments.

First Attempt towards a Standard Glossary of Ontology Engineering Terminology

This work was conceived due to the lack of standardization in the Ontology Engineering terminology, which clearly contrasts with the Software Engineering field that boasts the IEEE Standard Glossary of Software Engineering Terminology.

D1.1.4: NeOn Formalism for Modularization: Implementation and Evaluation

The implementation of a set of plugins for the NeOn Toolkit focusing on the task of specifying modules, combining modules, partitioning ontologies into a set of modules and extracting modules from ontologies is described.
