The NeOn project (Lifecycle support for networked ontologies - FP6-027595) aimed to advance the state of the art in Ontology Engineering and Semantic Web technologies. The main goal was to provide effective methodological and tool support for developing a new breed of semantic applications, able to exploit effectively the large amounts of information and data, which are now available on the Web.
The project aimed at improving the capability to handle multiple networked ontologies that exist in a particular context, are created collaboratively, and might be highly dynamic and constantly evolving.
NeOn has developed both the tool support called NeOn Toolkit and the associated methodology, the NeOn Methodology, to make possible the development of the new generation of complex semantic applications.
For a more detailed description of the project, please visit the website of the project.
OEG was the leader of the methodological research within the project. OEG developed the NeOn Methodology framework, based on 9 scenarios, and created methodological guidelines for the following processes and activities:
OEG was also involved in the three NeOn use cases providing mainly methodological help.
People involved in the development of the NeOn project were:
As a main result, we are working in a NeOn Book that includes the main results of the project. You can find a summary of the book in "NeOn Methodology in a Nutshell".
Additionally, the following main publications have been generated in the context of this project:
