To achieve interoperability between different domain-level ontologies (DLOs), OntoCommons aims to harmonize these ontologies while facilitating agreement in their development. In Work Package 3, OntoCommons aims to provide alignments among existing DLOs from the stakeholders' community as well as develop new DLOs to fill the gaps. This task (T3.4) involves several activities, including but not limited to: identifying existing DLOs and corresponding disciplines that need to be covered by the alignment effort; defining the level of alignment that needs to be achieved by the DLOs to ensure interoperability; identifying gaps in the disciplines that can be filled with new DLOs; and developing some new DLOs to cover the gaps. The first report (D3.6) on harmonized and developed ontologies was published in the 27th month. This report (D3.7) was a significant milestone for OntoCommons, as it marked the first step towards greater interoperability between different DLOs. The report focused on domain coverage analysis, gap identification, and harmonization among existing DLOs through bridge concept engineering. By identifying gaps and harmonizing existing DLOs, OntoCommons hoped to pave the way for new DLO development. Now, in this second report, OntoCommons will focus on new DLO development and any updates on the alignment of existing DLOs. The goal is to further improve interoperability and facilitate agreement in the development of
DLOs. By providing alignments among existing DLOs and developing new DLOs, OntoCommons hopes to create a more comprehensive and cohesive ontology landscape. OntoCommons recognizes the importance of ontology harmonization in enabling the sharing and reuse of data across different domains and applications. Through these efforts, OntoCommons aims to promote greater collaboration and innovation within the ontology community, and facilitate the development of more effective and efficient systems.
