DOGMA-MESS: A Meaning Evolution Support System for Interorganizational Ontology Engineering


de Moor, A., De Leenheer, P., and Meersman, R. (2006) DOGMA-MESS: A Meaning Evolution Support System for Interorganizational Ontology Engineering . In Proc. of the 14th Int’l Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2006) (Aalborg, Denmark), LNAI 4068, Springer, pp. 189-203.

In this paper, we explore the process of interorganizational ontology engineering. Scalable ontology engineering is hard to do in interorganizational settings where there are many pre-existing organizational ontologies and rapidly changing collaborative requirements. A complex socio-technical process of ontology alignment and meaning negotiation is therefore required.   In particular, we are interested in how to increase the efficiency and ioe2relevance of this process using context dependencies between ontological elements. We describe the DOGMA-MESS methodology and system for scalable, community-grounded ontology engineering. We illustrate this methodology  with examples taken from a case of interorganizational competency ontology evolution in the vocational training domain.
