SEMANTICS BASED RECONCILIATON FOR COLLABORATIVE ONTOLOGY EVOLUTION

Georgios M. Santipantakis, George A. Vouros

Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present the SR-COE (“Semantics-based Reconciliation in Collaborative Ontology Development and Evolution”) system for supporting knowledge workers/engineers to the synchronous and asynchronous collaborative ontology development and evolution: This system provides the necessary generic infrastructure for enhancing the deployment of any ontology development tool in distributed settings with concurrent workers, and for applying any collaborative ontology engineering method effectively. Current collaborative systems for the development and evolution of ontologies rely on discussion forums, argumentation dialogues, centralized shared repositories of ontologies, and locking mechanisms. In a greater extend than these approaches SR-COE exploits the semantics of the modification actions performed from the different, concurrent contributing parties so as to actively support them to reach mutual agreed ontologies.
