COLORE (Common Logic Repository)    (38K4)

COLORE is an open repository of first-order ontologies implemented in Common Logic. COLORE is self-contained and using one single logic, but it is “distributed” in its high modularity.    (38K5)

Meta-theoretical relationships between the COLORE ontologies are of particular interest, including maps (signature morphisms), definitional extension, conservative extension, inconsistency between modules, imports, relative interpretation, faithful interpretation, and definable equivalence. DOL allows for formalizing them (as compared to the earlier approach of just writing them down as metadata) and makes them amenable to fully automated verification with tools such as Hets (Heterogeneous Tool Set).    (38K6)

First mappings implemented in DOL can be found in the directories for OWL Time intervals and Periods.    (38K7)

Ontohub, a DOL-enabled Ontology Repository Engine    (38K8)

The Ontohub repository engine (productive version, demo version with latest features, sources) supports many notions of DOL as first-class citizens:    (38K9)

This presentation introduces Ontohub with a slide show and a demo video.    (38KE)
