TOOLS TO FOSTER SEMANTIC-BASED COLLABORATION - A Knowledge Management Approach Based on a Semantic Wiki and Personal Ontologies

Flavio De Paoli, Marco Loregian

Abstract

Increased mobility and team distribution may hinder collaboration in organization by hampering spontaneous communication in workplaces. Tools are required to be integrated and not intrusive with respect to users’ activities, in order to provide effective support to workers for the development of joint projects. In this paper we present the enhancement of a knowledge-based collaborative system by means of a Semantic Wiki, which is a wiki exploiting ontologies to create machine-processable annotation of documents. Moreover, we present a simple tool to edit personal ontologies, that can be shared with other team or organization members.
