The research work presented in this paper is about the design of a knowledge system architecture applied to oncology and relying on the semantic Web principles. The core of this architecture is a working knowledge system, called Kasimir, using an object-based representation formalism and classification-based reasoning. The ontology editor Protege is connected with the Kasimir system, and is adapted to the particular requirements of Kasimir. The Protege system enables the integration of several edition and visualization modules. A first knowledge edition module relies on classification-based reasoning for detecting mismatches and redundancies in the edited knowledge hierarchy. A second knowledge edition module also uses classification-based reasoning for comparing two versions of the knowledge base for maintenance purposes. This last module is particularly useful for extracting and analyzing the changes occurred during an edition session. Three modules are combined to visualize hierarchies, based on three different techniques having complementary advantages. All these modules --including Kasimir and Protege-- are integrated in a semantic portal architecture based on semantic Web principles. The proposed architecture takes advantage of the semantic Web technologies for integrating the different modules, and for providing a reusable environment for distributed knowledge management in oncology.
