Abstract

Ontology summarization has been recognized as a very useful technique to facilitate ontology understanding and then support ontology reuse as a new or supplementing technique. A number of efforts have emerged lately that apply different criteria, addressing different features of ontology, to extract ontology summaries. However, those efforts are ad-hoc in that there lacks consensus on a number of issues fundamental to the development of the field, such as a definition for ontology summarization, use case scenarios etc. Also, there lack sufficient evaluations and analysis, e.g. comparison among them and with other similar techniques, to provide meaning guidelines for users of this technique. With the aim to provide solutions to those fundamental issues, in this work, we present an analysis of this technique and its approaches. With the help of an objective evaluation method, we investigate what features of ontology are important in ontology summarization.
