Bao, Jie and Honavar, Vasant (2004) Ontology Language Extensions to Support Localized Semantics, Modular Reasoning, and Collaborative Ontology Design and Ontology Reuse. Technical Report, Computer Sicence, Iowa State University.
Modular approaches to design and use of ontologies are essential to the success of the Semantic web enterprise. We describe P-OWL (Package-based OWL) which extends OWL, a widely used ontology language that supports modular design, adaptation, use, and reuse of ontologies. P-OWL localizes the semantics of entities and relationships in OWL to modules called packages. P-OWL and the associated tools will greatly facilitate collaborative ontology construction, use, and reuse.
