Abstract

This paper introduces the notion of Ontology Robustness in Evolution and discusses a solution based on the distinction among a stable component and a contingent component of the ontology. The stable component represents the annotation used to store data into the ontology, while the contingent component contains assertions generated by constraining the assertions in the stable component. This distinction can be used to understand which annotations can be migrated from one old version of the ontology to a new one. This way it is minimized the number of inconsistencies introduced in annotations when evolving an ontology.
