Separating Conceptual and Visual Aspects in Meta-Modelling

Simon Nikles, Simon Brander

Abstract

ATHENE is a modelling environment which allows for creating meta-models and models based on these, aimed at generating an ontology of the modelled content. This work deals with the question on whether and how to separate the conceptual part of a (meta-)model from its graphical representation. We provide an overview on existing ontology- and meta-modelling approaches compared to ATHENE and develop a conceptual basis for enhancing the meta2 level of the tool.
