Description & Coverage
Description:

Ontologies form an indispensable basis for modeling and engineering languages for business enterprise and information systems: fostering a need for the integration of structural and behavioral aspects in domain-oriented ontologies.

The Handbook of Ontologies for Business Interaction documents high-quality research addressing ontological issues that are relevant to the modeling of enterprises and information systems in general and business processes in particular covering both static and dynamic aspects of structural concepts. This authoritative handbook provides crucial reference content to researchers, practitioners, and scholars in the fields of language design, information systems, enterprise modeling, domain engineering, artificial intelligence, and the Semantic Web.

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agent-oriented enterprise model
  • Aristotelian ontologies
  • Business partner management
  • Demands of mobile users

Reviews and Testimonials

In the Handbook of Ontologies for Business Interaction there is a strong focus on domain issues; but, domain issues also have considerable impact on the design of a foundational ontology, therefore there is also a section devoted to ontological foundations.

– Peter Rittgen, University College Borås, Sweden

The book will be of interest to researchers, practitioners, and scholars in the fields of language design, information systems, enterprise modeling, domain engineering, artificial intelligence, and the Semantic Web.
