Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative

A note about translation from SKOS to OWL

Ontology matchers tend to require ontologies to be matched (this is the least). Yet SKOS thesauri are not really ontologies. So people may want to translate SKOS thesauri into OWL ontologies. We are aware of at least two ways to achieve this.

Use the converted ontologies provided for the food, environment and library test sets. According to the description provided by Antoine Issac, they obey the following rules:

Use the tool developed by Miklos Nagy for the same purpose. It uses the following set of rules (see also Miklos provided short description):

Antoine also plan to evaluate returned alignment with "OWL relationships". The following interpretations will be made of OWL data sent back by participants:
