Abstract

Ontology design is a crucial task for the Semantic Web. In the literature, methodologies have been proposed to develop ontologies, however the phase between knowledge gathering and knowledge coding remains challenging. In this paper, we propose a dynamic ontology design based on dynamic design notations for a systematic identification of the relations between domain concepts. For this purpose, we propose the use of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), and the mapping of the related dynamic notations to the ontology domain. Our approach has been successfully validated in a study case of an ontology with a publication repository domain.
