MODULARITY, studied for years in software engineering, allows mechanisms for easy and flexible reuse, generalization, structuring, maintenance, design patterns, and comprehension. In formal and applied ontology, modularity is central to reducing the complexity of designing and understanding ontologies, and to facilitating ontology verification, reasoning, development, maintenance and integration.
Recent research on ontology modularity shows substantial progress in foundations of modularity, techniques of modularization and modular development, distributed… read more
