Ontology evolution is increasingly gaining momentum in the area of Semantic Web research. Current approaches target the evolution in terms of either content, or change management, without covering both aspects in the same framework. Moreover, they are slowed down as they heavily rely on user input. We tackle the aforementioned issues by proposing Evolva, a comprehensive ontology evolution framework, which handles a complete ontology evolution cycle, and makes use of background knowledge for decreasing user input.
