Mapping Object Role Modeling 2 Schemes into SROIQ (D) Description Logic

Heba M. Wagih, Doaa S. ElZanfaly, and Mohamed M. Kouta

Abstract—Ontology engineering is gaining a lot of focus due to the rapid technological development including the emergence of semantic web technology. The idea behind semantic Web is to create a web of data that can easily be shared, accessed and even transformed over a global scale independently of any application or domain. Descriptions logics achieve the goals of semantic web through providing a logical formalism for developed ontologies. SROIQ (D) represents the description logic underlying OWL2. In this paper we present the mapping rules from a rich graphical conceptual modeling technique called ORM2 to SROIQ (D).

Index Terms—ORM2, OWL2, semantic web, SROIQ (D)
