Title : ( Formalizing ontology modularization through the notion of interfaces )

In this paper, we propose a new formalism for modular ontologies, which exploits the notion of interfaces as well as epistemic queries. In the proposed formalism, each ontology module both employs and realizes two distinct sets of interfaces. The axioms in each interface form the public section of the ontology module, while its ABox and TBoxes are private and can only be accessed through epistemic queries. This formalism permits the separation of configuration and development time manipulation tasks of a modular ontology development process. Hence, ontology modules can be developed independently of each others’ signature and description language.
