Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3220)


Ontology has attracted much attention recently. Semantic Web (SW) is accelerating it further. As far as the author is concerned, however, ontology as well as ontological engineering is not well-understood by people. There exist two types of ontology: One is computer-understandable vocabulary for SW and the other is something related to deep conceptual structure closer to philosophical ontology. In this talk, I would like to explain the essentials of ontological engineering laying much stress on the latter type ontology.
