Hi Leo,

Some years ago I did some work on UML=>OWL conversion and putting the scheme
to use. The following were published:

-          MSc thesis completed under my direction: MEHRULHASSANI, Moein,
Developing Ontology-Based Applications of Semantic Web Using UML to OWL
Conversion, Eastern Mediterranean Univ., July 2008.

 

-          Conference paper: Moein Mehrolhassani and Atilla Elçi (2008):
OLS: An Ontology Based Information System. Proceedings of International
Workshop on Ontology Alignment and Visualization (OnAV-2008), held in
conjunction with the Second International Conference on Complex, Intelligent
and Software Intensive Systems (CISIS 2008), 4-7 March, 2008, Technical
University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain. Published by IEEE CPS, 2008,
ISBN: 978-0-7695-3109-0, pp: 892-896.

Subject: UML => OWL, SKOS => OWL?

 



Folks,

 

I'm looking for: 

1)       Formalizations, methods, implementations, tools that
convert/transform UML object models into OWL ontologies in a structure- and
semantics-preserving way. 

2)      Also, approaches that map SKOS vocabularies (especially codelists)
in a reasonable fashion to OWL ontologies. E.g., as value enumerations of
ranges of data or object properties. 

 

Concerning (1), I'm aware of early UML => DAML work, circa 2001-2. I am also
aware of more recent work such as:

 

Zedlitz, Jesper, and Norbert Luttenberger. 2014. Conceptual Modelling in UML
and OWL-2. International Journal on Advances in Software, vol 7 no 1 & 2,
year 2014, http://www.iariajournals.org/software/. Also:
http://www.thinkmind.org/download.php?articleid=soft_v7_n12_2014_15. 

 

Zedlitz, J., and N. Luttenberger. 2013. Data types in UML and OWL-2, in
SEMAPRO 2013, The Seventh International Conference on Advances in Semantic
Processing, 2013, pp. 32-35.
http://www.thinkmind.org/download.php?articleid=semapro_2013_2_20_50033. 

 

Zedlitz, J., J. Jörke, and N. Luttenberger, "From UML to OWL 2," in
Proceedings of Knowledge Technology Week 2011, D. Lukose, A. R. Ahmad, and
A. Suliman, Eds., Berlin/Heidelberg, 2012, pp. p. 154-163.

 

Zedlitz, J., and N. Luttenberger. 2012. Transforming Between UML Conceptual
Models and OWL 2 Ontologies," in Proceedings of the Terra Cognita Workshop
on Foundations, Technologies and Applications of the Geospatial Web, in
conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012),
D. Kolas, M. Perry, R. Grütter, and M. Koubarakis, Eds., 2012, pp. p. 15-26.
[Online]. Available: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-901/paper2.pdf.

 

Do you know of other such work?

 

Also, do you know of work addressing (2)?

 

Thanks much!

Leo
