Describing semantic web applications through relations between data nodes

Semantic Web Applications can only be understood if the complex data flows they implement are clearly described. However, application developers have very little support at the moment for documenting such data flows and their rationale, in an appropriately formal and conceptual manner. In this paper, we propose to apply a knowledge engineering approach to the formal description of Semantic Web Applications. Following an ontology building methodology based on the analysis of several existing...read more

Cognition, ontologies and description logics

This report describes work undertaken and planned, the goal of which is to better understand how people comprehend and use complex ontologies, in particular those employing Description Logics (DLs). Two research questions are posed: 1. In what way can the difficulties experienced in using Description Logics be understood in terms of an underlying theory, e.g. theories of reasoning already developed within the cognitive psychology community? 2. In what way could such a theory contribute to...read more

Ontology patterns: a survey into their use

This report describes the results of a survey into the use of ontology patterns. Responses came from industry, research institutes and academia and covered a range of different application areas. The survey covered: pattern characteristics and sources; pattern usage; and pattern identification, creation and storage. Pattern size and domain specificity appear to be correlated. There was a significant rank correlation between specificity and number of classes in the pattern, and a close to...read more

Mining Research Publication Networks for Impact

The question of how to evaluate the quality of research publications is very difficult to answer and despite decades of research, there is still no standard solution to this problem. Particularly at present, with the amount of scholarly literature rapidly expanding, it might become very difficult and time consuming to recognise what is the key research that presents the most important contributions to science. Furthermore, this question is highly relevant not only to researchers, but also...read more
