We had a paper in the Formal Ontology in Information Systems 01
Conference last fall, talking about ontologies in e-commerce and
focusing on the ontology-ontology, ontology-taxonomy,
ontology-application mapping problem.    (01)

Ontological engineering for B2B E-commerce, Leo Obrst, Robert Wray,
Howard Liu
ABSTRACT     (04)

    In this paper we discuss the nature of our overall enterprise to
create ontologies in the product and service knowledge space for
Business-to-Business (B2B) electronic commerce. We describe one crucial
problem: the mapping problem, i.e., mapping among ontologies,
taxonomies, and classification systems, some of which are more
semantically sound and coherent than others. This problem we consider to
be in need of a sustained research program if tenable solutions are to
be found, since the lack of a solution will preclude widespread adoption
of ontologies by the commercial world. Finally, we summarize the general
issues we faced and indicate prospective
future research.     (05)
