Ontology Pattern Languages

An Ontology Pattern Language (OPL) is a network of interconnected Domain-related Ontology Patterns (DROPs) that provides holistic support for solving ontology development problems for a specific domain. An OPL contains a set of interconnected DROPs, plus a modeling workflow guiding on how to use and combine them in a specific order, and suggesting patterns for solving some modeling problems in that domain.

This project aims at promoting Ontology Engineering by means of Ontology Patterns and OPLs.
