As experimental economics proved to be promising and dynamically growing research field, a lot of methodological and practical issues are raised in scientific literature. However, practical possibility of knowledge handling in whole experimental economics domain is limited. On the other hand, a development of knowledge management mechanisms, especially focusing on knowledge engineering and ontologies, provides auspicious means to handle knowledge. As the result of the mentioned above, in this chapter, an attempt of ontology as a form of knowledge engineering for handling knowledge in experimental economics is proposed. To confirm the applicability of the proposed approach, several case studies referring to selected problems of experimental economics are provided.
