Ontologies are often seen as basic building blocks for the Semantic Web, as they provide a reusable piece of knowledge about a specific domain. However, those pieces of knowledge are not static, but evolve over time. Domain changes, adaptations to different tasks, or changes in the conceptualization require modifications of the ontology. The evolution of ontologies causes operability problems, which will hamper their effective reuse. A versioning mechanism might help to reduce those problems… Expand
A Methodology for Ontology Evolution and Versioning
  • W. Jaziri
  • Computer Science
  • 2009 Third International Conference on Advances in Semantic Processing
  • 2009
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach of ontology evolution which incorporates a versioning management process, based on three phases: evolution changes, ontology coherence and versioningmanagement. Expand
Ontology Versioning and Change Detection on the Web
TLDR
The topic of ontology versioning in the context of the Web is analyzed by looking at the characteristics of the version relation between ontologies and at the identification of online ontologies, and the design of a web-based system is described. Expand
Survey on Techniques for Ontology Interoperability in Semantic Web
TLDR
This paper surveys the approaches that have been proposed for providing interoperability among domain ontologies and its related techniques and tools and briefly introduces its different approaches. Expand
Ontologies Change and Queries Break: Towards a Solution
TLDR
The approach is to make use of ontology change logs to analyse incoming RDQL queries and amend them as necessary, so that Revised queries can then be used to query the ontology and knowledge base as requested by the applications and services. Expand
ORES-2010 Ontology Repositories and Editors for the Semantic Web
During their lifecycle, ontologies are changed for diverse reasons: their vocabulary is enhanced to enable additional application or annotation possibilities, their expressivity is restricted toExpand
Supporting ontology adaptation and versioning based on a graph of relevance
TLDR
A series of techniques are proposed to ‘safely’ evolve a given ontology and produce a new consistent version, which is implemented in the Consistology tool, which has been developed to assist users in expressing adaptation requirements and managing ontology versions. Expand
Ontology alignment mechanisms for improving web-based searching
TLDR
In this thesis, an ontology alignment technique has been developed in order to facilitate communication and build a bridge between ontologies, and tries to use all the features of ontologies (concept, attributes, relations, structure, etc.) in order for efficiency and high quality results. Expand
On belief change and ontology evolution
One of the crucial tasks to be performed towards the realization of the vision of the Semantic Web is the encoding of human knowledge in special structures (ontologies), using formal representationExpand
Evolution in the ontology-based knowledge management systems
TLDR
This paper makes an analysis of the problems induced by using not-evolved ontologies and presents an approach for enabling consistency of the description of knowledge sources in an ontology-based KM system in the case of changes in the domain ontology. Expand
Adding Support for Dynamic Ontologies to Existing Knowledge Bases
TLDR
A Virtual Perspective Interface (VPI) based on this theory that ensures that old data is still accessible through ontology modifications and can be accessed using new ontologies, in addition to the older ontologies which may still be in use by legacy applications. Expand

A Roadmap to Ontology Specification Languages
TLDR
This paper establishes a common framework to compare the expressiveness and reasoning capabilities of "traditional" ontology languages (Ontolingua, OKBC, OCML, FLogic, LOOM) and "web-based" ontological languages, and concludes with the results of applying this framework to the selected languages. Expand
Dynamic Ontologies on the Web
TLDR
This work presents SHOE, a web-based knowledge representation language that supports multiple versions of ontologies, in the terms of a logic that separates data from ontologies and allows ontologies to provide different perspectives on the data. Expand
ONTOLOGY REVISION
Knowledge systems as currently configured are static in their concept sets. As knowledge maintenance becomes more sophisticated, the need to address issues concerning dynamic concept sets willExpand
Some Issues on Ontology Integration
TLDR
The different meanings of the word “integration” are discussed, and the main characteristics of the three different processes and proposethree words to distinguish among those meanings are identified:integration, merge and use. Expand
Combining and relating ontologies: an analysis of problems and solutions
TLDR
This paper tries to classify the problems that may arise into a common framework, and uses that framework to examine several projects that aim at some ontology combination task, thus sketching the state of the art. Expand
A translation approach to portable ontology specifications
TLDR
This paper describes a mechanism for defining ontologies that are portable over representation systems, basing Ontolingua itself on an ontology of domain-independent, representational idioms. Expand
Ontologies: Dynamic Networks of Formally Represented Meaning
TLDR
Some of the essential requirements for technology that supports access to unstructured, heterogeneous and distributed information and knowledge sources will become as essential as programming languages were in the 60's and 70’s are examined. Expand
Building Concept Representations from Reusable Components
TLDR
This work extends the normal inheritance approach used in frame-based systems, and imports ideas from several different areas of AI, in particular compositional modeling, terminological reasoning, and ontological engineering, to improve the efficiency of building knowledge bases and the robustness of using them.

A survey of schema versioning issues for database systems
  • J. Roddick
  • Computer Science
  • Inf. Softw. Technol.
  • 1995
TLDR
The modelling, architectural and query language issues relating to the support of evolving schemata in database systems and the future directions of schema versioning research are discussed. Expand
