Abstract

Introducing the dimension of time in ontologies turns binary relations into ternary which cannot be handled by OWL. Approaches such as the N-ary relations or the 4D-fluents approach discussed in this work, offer satisfactory solutions to this problem. However, data and property semantics are not preserved in the resulting representations nor can they be handled by ordinary reasoners such as Pellet. We propose a rule-based solution to this problem using SWRL.
