Ontologies form the core of Semantic Web systems, and as such, they need to evolve to meet the changing needs of the system and its users. Most of current ontology evolution systems require user input during their processes. We propose Evolva, an ontology evolution framework, aiming to substantially reduce or even eliminate user input through exploiting various background knowledge sources. In this paper we present our ontology evolution approach, as well as our preliminary outcomes and future directions.
