Abstract

Ontologies still lack in including and considering the dynamic aspects of business processes. Therefore, existing ontology-based information systems provide only static information which does not suit the actual working context of a user. In this project we extend information retrieval techniques with ontologies through a process oriented view on ontologies (POVOO). The purpose is to satisfy a user with information that depends on the current process the user is working on. Due to a context aware approach, it is possible to adapt the information to the user’s current working situation dynamically. We introduce a methodology for generating views on ontologies and we illustrate how an application can use them to query highly specialized knowledge bases.
