Abstract:
Knowledge is an important resource for organisations, and be able to manage it is a key success factor. Within collaborative settings knowledge management is being reshaped by new and demanding outlines. New information management and knowledge sharing approaches should cope with possible variations in business situations and contexts as well as the variety and sometimes discordant viewpoints, inherent to collaborative environments. Develop, reuse and maintain common interpretations of available information is crucial to support real-word organisational activities. The particularly challenging problem of knowledge elicitation is here tackled tying together terminological and knowledge representation views. A corpus-based conceptual modelling architecture was designed and discussed together with the workflows for real-time context retrieval and lexical pattern discovery. The practical implementation and validation of this work are accomplished on ConceptME system, a platform developed within this research line, providing knowledge and terminological tools and resources to support activities that involve collaborative conceptualisation processes, according to ColBlend method.
