Metalevel Information in Ontology-Based Applications

Thanh Tran, Peter Haase, Boris Motik, Bernardo Cuenca Grau, Ian Horrocks

Applications of Semantic Web technologies often require the management of metalevel information—that is, information that provides additional detail about domain-level information, such as provenance or access rights policies. Existing OWL-based tools provide little or no support for the representation and management of metalevel information. To fill this gap, we propose a framework based on metaviews— ontologies that describe facts in the application domain. We have implemented our framework in the KAON2 reasoner, and have successfully applied it in a nontrivial scenario.
