Abstract:


Ontology change is an important part of the Semantic Webfield that helps researchers and practitioners to deal with changes performed in ontologies. Ontology change is especially important in Ontology-Based Information Integration (OBII) systems, where several ontologies are interrelated and therefore, changes raise various complexities and implications, such as modifications of ontology mappings and change propagation. Current approaches to ontology change mainly focus on a single ontology and therefore do not properly address the constraints specific to OBII systems. To address the challenge of ontology change in OBII contexts, we plan to adapt successful techniques proposed both by Semantic Web and Model-Driven Engineering communities. We discuss the research goals, methods, and evaluation options to address this challenge. Realworld case studies are used for the development and evaluation of the proposed methods.
