OntoMaven - Maven-Based Ontology Development and Management of Distributed Ontology Repositories

  title={OntoMaven - Maven-Based Ontology Development and Management of Distributed Ontology Repositories},
  author={Adrian Paschke and Ralph Sch{\"a}fermeier},
In collaborative agile ontology development projects support for modular reuse of ontologies from large existing remote repositories, ontology project life cycle management, and transitive dependency management are important needs. The Apache Maven approach has proven its success in distributed collaborative Software Engineering by its widespread adoption. The contribution of this paper is a new design artifact called OntoMaven. OntoMaven adopts the Maven-based development methodology and… Expand
Resilient Ontology Support Facilitating Multi-Perspective Process Integration in Industry 4.0
This work utilizes the multi-perspective RAMI4.0 framework and suggests using Subject-oriented Business Process Management models to represent executable processes, as they allow encapsulating industry standard-conform as well as stakeholder behavior. Expand
DBpedia Archivo: A Web-Scale Interface for Ontology Archiving Under Consumer-Oriented Aspects
An online ontology interface and augmented archive called DBpedia Archivo is presented, that discovers, crawls, versions and archives ontologies on the DBpedia Databus and deploys different features, quality measures and, if possible, fixes to handle and stabilize the changes in the found ontologies at web-scale.

Ontology engineering: Current state, challenges, and future directions
An overview of how the ontology engineering field has evolved in the last decade is given and some of the unsolved issues and opportunities for future research are discussed. Expand
Networked Ontologies with Contextual Alignments
Some aspects of multi-level networked knowledge are recalled, detailing its semantics and discussing the comparison of the two semantics, DL-approach and DDL-appro approach, according to certain criteria, in order to measure their relevance and to give to readers a way to choose one semantics rather than another according to the context or the intended application.

A semantic structuring of educational research using ontologies
This article is devoted to the presentation of the semantic interoperability of research and scientific results through an ontological taxonomy. To achieve this, the principles of systematization andExpand
Comparison of ontology with non-ontology tools for educational research
Providing complex digital support for scientific research is an urgent problem that requires the creation of useful tools. Cognitive IT-platform Polyhedron has used to collect both existingExpand
A Taxonomic Representation of Scientific Studies
The different ways to create integrated ontology using IMRAD have been de-scribed and the specific way of the usage of proposed modes has described on the example of the describing studies in the field of biogas production. Expand
Managing and Compiling Data Dependencies for Semantic Applications using Databus Client

Using logical entailments of gene annotations for biological discovery
This thesis presents several methodologies that, when used collectively, vastly increase available gene annotations in both number and type and demonstrates that with careful consideration it is possible to integrate a large portion of the Open Biomedical Ontologies while maintaining logical soundness.

A software engineering approach to ontology building
This paper proposes UP for ONtology (UPON) building, a methodology for ontology building derived from the UP, and a comparative evaluation with other methodologies and the results of its adoption in the context of the Athena EU Integrated Project are discussed. Expand
Towards a Unified Approach to Modular Ontology Development Using the Aspect-Oriented Paradigm
This paper examines commonalities between ontology modules and software aspects and proposes an approach to applying the latter to the problem of a priori construction of modular ontologies and a posteriori ontology modularization. Expand
SVoNt - Version Control of OWL Ontologies on the Concept Level
An SVN-based approach for versioning of W3C OWL ontologies called SVoNt – a subversion system for ontologies to enable views on the revision history of an ontology on the concept level in the same fashion as it is known from the classical SVN approach for the document level. Expand
The Distributed Ontology Language (DOL): Ontology Integration and Interoperability Applied to Mathematical Formalization
An application of DOL's meta-theoretical features in mathematical formalization is focused on validating relationships between ontological formalizations of mathematical concepts in COLORE, which provide the foundation for formalizing real-world notions such as spatial and temporal relations.
