Title:Merging Top Level Ontologies for Scientific Knowledge Management
Authors: John Kingston
Date:Aug 2002
Publication Title:Proceedings of the AAAI workshop on Ontologies and the Semantic Web
Publication Type:Conference Paper
A group of researchers from the EPSRC-sponsored Advanced Knowledge Technologies (AKT) project had independently developed four different ontologies covering the same domain: scientific knowledge management (academics, papers, conferences, etc). A reference ontology was developed to allow communication between these four ontologies. It was proposed that the reference ontology would benefit from incorporating the top level of the OntoClean ontology (Gangemi et al, 1998) because of the meta-properties that this ontology uses to support ontology structuring decisions. A merged ontology structure is proposed and the issues that arise in the merging process are analysed and discussed.
