Abstract

We present Joyce, a scalable tool for identifying and assembling relevant (pieces of) ontologies from a repository of source ontologies, thus enabling the effective and efficient reuse of formalized domain knowledge. Joyce includes a conceptual filter to identify relevant classes, minimizes unintended redundancies, i.e. concept duplicates, and excludes knowledge considered irrelevant for the specific conceptual design task.

Keywords

Ontology selection Ontology modularization Ontology reuse
