Ontology-Driven Knowledge Organization: Enhancing UDDI Web services in Korea Using Topic Maps by Sam Gyun Oh, Eun Chul Lee, Oknam Park, and Myongho Yi appears in Proceedings 68th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIST) 42.
Effective and efficient publishing and searching for Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI) Web services is important for the success of Web services. Traditional approaches such as index, thesaurus, and classification have historically dominated information representation and organization; however, they have some limitations. Ontology-driven knowledge organization [An ontology-driven knowledge organization approach] is considered one of keys to the next generation of knowledge management applications because ontology provides structure and meaning to data. This research examines how ontology-driven knowledge organization could provide benefits to current UDDI Web services.
