An extendable Java Framework for Instance Similarities in Ontologies
A paper I co-authored got accepted, its about a Java framework for calculating instance similarities in ontologies (the full list of authors: Mark Hefke, Valentin Zacharias, Ernst Biesalski, Andreas Abecker, Qingli Wang, Marco Breiter), the paper is called An extendable Java Framework for Instance Similarities in Ontologies and it will be presented at the 8th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems. Abstract:
We present the conceptual basis and a prototypical implementation of a technical framework for computing syntactical and semantical similarities between instances within an ontology. The focus of this work did not only comprise the implementation of specific, ontology-based similarity measures, but also their flexible and efficient combination and extensibility.
