Annotating semantic data with metadata is becoming more and more important. We extend the 4dFluents ontology by Welty and Fikes. We discuss possible issues that multidimensional context representations have to face.

Abstract

Annotating semantic data with metadata is becoming more and more important to provide information about the statements being asserted. While initial solutions proposed a data model to represent a specific dimension of meta-information (such as time or provenance), the need for a general annotation framework which allows representing different context dimensions is needed. In this paper, we extend the 4dFluents ontology by Welty and Fikes---on associating temporal validity to statements---to any dimension of context, and discuss possible issues that multidimensional context representations have to face and how we address them.

An Introduction to Fuzzy & Annotated Semantic Web Languages
We present the state of the art in representing and reasoning with fuzzy knowledge in Semantic Web Languages. We further show how one may generalise them to so-called annotation domains, that cover also temporal and provenance extensions.

Logical Inferences with Contexts of RDF Triples
Logical inference is an integral feature of the Semantic Web. Incorporating context of an RDF triple (e.g., provenance, time, and location) into the process requires the formal semantics to be capable of describing the context of RDF triples also in the form of triples. The formal semantics should also provide the rules that could entail new contextual triples aboutTriples.

TimeML-strict: clarifying temporal annotation
TimeML is an XML-based schema for annotating temporal information over discourse. The current state of resources is such that many are not valid, or do not produce valid output. Difficulties arising from variances were highlighted in the TempEval-3 exercise.

An Ontology Design Pattern for representing Recurrent Situations
In this paper, we present an Ontology Design Pattern for representing situations that recur at regular periods and share some invariant factors. The proposed pattern appears to be foundational and can be generalised for modelling the top-level domain-independent concept of recurrence.
