Query answering in distributed description logics


This paper describes the notion of query answering in a distributed knowledge based system, and gives methods for computing these answers in certain cases. More precisely, given a distributed system (DS) of ontologies and ontology mappings (or bridge rules) written in Distributed Description Logics (DDL), distributed answers are defined for queries written in terms of one particular ontology. These answers may contain individuals from different ABoxes. To compute these answers, the paper provides an algorithm that reduce the problem of distributed query answering to local query answering. This algorithm is proved correct but not complete in the general case.
