Neither developing ontologies nor aligning ontologies are easy tasks and often the resulting ontologies and mappings are not consistent or complete. With the increased use of ontologies and ontology mappings in semantically-enabled applications such as ontology-based search and data integration; the issue of detecting and repairing defects in ontologies and ontology mappings has become increasingly important. These defects can lead to wrong or incomplete results for the applications.
