Abstract:In recent years many ontologies have been developed. The benefits of using ontologies include reuse; sharing and portability of knowledge across platforms; and improved documentation; maintenance; and reliability. Ontologies lead to a better understanding of a field and to more effective and efficient handling of information in that field. Often we also want to be able to use multiple ontologies. In these cases it is important to know the relationships between the terms in the different ontologies and much research has recently been done on ontology alignment; i.e.; finding mappings between terms in different ontologies.

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.
