Vit Novacek, Loredana Laera, Siegfried Handschuh "Aiding the Data Integration in Medicinal Settings by Means of Semantic Technologies", Making Semantics Work for Business, in conjunction with European Semantic Technology Conference, Semantic Technology Institutes International, 2007.
The paper introduces basic features of a novel ontology integration framework that explicitly takes the dynamics and data-intensiveness of many practical application scenarios into account. We motivate our research partially by the needs of bio-medicine scenarios that have been recently identified within the search for semantics-enabled solutions. In this context, we show a concrete example of the integration process in the life-sciences settings. Moreover, we elaborate a possible bio-medicine industry application domain of the presented framework and explain the benefits of the proposed semantic solution.
