Hello Yury,

We at STAR (http://starlab.vub.ac.be/) have developed both a method and a tool for collaborative ontology engineering. It is based on fact-oriented formalisms (object-role modeling) and are easily translated into OWL. The advantage is that ORM is close to the natural language used by a community. You can find information in this paper (1). A running instance is currently used by our students for their project on http://starpc14.vub.ac.be:8080/gospl

If you wish, you can provide more information.

Best regards,
