Re: Calculating concept distance in an ontology

Besides the ontology alignment literature, there are also some papers (and
even systems) on similarity of concepts and instances within one ontology:

(SimPack Framework) Bernstein, A., Kaufmann, E., B├╝rki, C., Klein, M.,

Object Similarity in Ontologies: A Foundation for Business

Systems and High-Performance Retrieval.

In: 25th Int. Conf. on Information

Oldakowski, R., Bizar, C., 2005. SemMF: A Framework

for Calculating
Semantic Similarity of Objects Represented

Int. Semantic

Web Conference

Culmone, R., Rossi, G. and Merelli, E., 2002.
An Ontology

Similarity Algorithm for BioAgent (Poster),

NETTAB02 Agents

and last but not least, our own approach as
described in:

Hefke, M., Zacharias, V., Biesalski, E., Abecker A., Wang,
Q., Breiter, M.

An extendable Java Framework for Instance Similarities in

(so its not really published yet, but
I could send it to you)
