=========================================================

Applied Ontology - An Interdisciplinary Journal of Ontological Analysis
and Conceptual Modeling
IOS Press, ISSN: 1570-5838
Editors-in-Chief: Nicola Guarino, Mark A. Musen


MODULARITY, as studied for many years in software engineering, allows
mechanisms  for easy and flexible reuse, generalisation, structuring,
maintenance, design patterns, and comprehension. Applied to ontology
engineering, modularity is central not only to reduce the complexity of
understanding ontologies, but also to facilitate ontology maintenance
and ontology reasoning. Recent research on ontology modularity shows
substantial progress in foundations of modularity, techniques of
modularisation and modular development, distributed reasoning and
empirical evaluation. These results provide a solid foundation and
exciting prospects for further research and development.

This special issue invites submission of high quality original work that
has neither appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other journals.
