In this paper we consider a multiagent system with multiple ontologies. The agents maintain the ontologies individually which leads to frequent changes and possible knowledge inconsistencies. We propose a general framework for decision making about ontology alignment and negotiation which takes into account the properties of the actual communication network and utilizes the Deontic Logic formalism for reasoning.

    ABSTRACT: We present an end-to-end system that extracts a user’s social network and its members’ contact information given the user’s email inbox. The system identifies unique people in email, finds theirWeb presence, and automatically fills the fields of a contact address book using conditional random fields—a type of probabilistic model well-suited for such information extraction tasks. By recursively calling itself on new people discovered on the Web, the system builds a social network with multiple degrees of separation from the user. Additionally, a set of expertise-describing keywords are extracted and associated with each person. We outline the collection of statistical and learning components that enable this system, and present experimental results on the real email of two users; we also present results with a simple method of learning transfer, and discuss the capabilities of the system for addressbook population, expert-finding, and social network analysis.

    ABSTRACT: With the grown availability of large and specialized online ontologies, the questions about the combined use of independently developed ontologies have become even more important. Although there is already a lot of research done in this area, there are still many open questions. In this paper we try to classify the problems that may arise into a common framework. We then use that framework to examine several projects that aim at some ontology combination task, thus sketching the state of the art. We conclude with an overview of the different approaches and some recommandations for future research. 1

    ABSTRACT: Role-based access control (RBAC) is a promising alternative to traditional discretionary and mandatory access controls. In RBAC permissions are associated with roles, and users are made members of appropriate roles thereby acquiring the roles' permissions. In this paper we formally show that lattice-based mandatory access controls can be enforced by appropriate configuration of RBAC components. Our constructions demonstrate that role hierarchies and constraints are required to effectively achieve this result. We show that variations of the lattice-based *-property, such as write-up (liberal *-property) and no-write-up (strict *-property), can be easily accommodated in RBAC. Our results attest to the flexibility of RBAC and its ability to accommodate different policies by suitable configuration of role hierarchies and constraints.
