Implementing Simple Modular ERDF ontologies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The Extended Resource Description Framework has been proposed to equip RDF graphs with weak and strong negation, as well as derivation rules, increasing the expressiveness of ordinary RDF graphs. In parallel, the Modular Web framework enables collaborative and controlled reasoning in the Semantic Web. In this paper we show how to use the Modular Web Framework to capture the modular semantics for ERDF graphs, supporting local semantics and different points of view, local closed-world and open-world assumptions, and scoped negation-as-failure.
