Logical Modelling

Course with SWS 0/2/0 (lecture/exercise/practical) in SS 2017



  • 0/2/0


Examination method

  • Term paper


  • Presentations of the practical Assignments: Wednesday 26.7 (DS 4)
  • We meet regularly on Wednesdays (except 17.5 = Dies Academicus)

This seminar intends to address the topic of practical modeling in knowledge representation languages. As formalisms, we will cover

  • OWL (the popular Web Ontology Language used in the Semantic Web but also for offline knowledge management solutions)
  • Answer Set Programming, a logic programming approach used for modeling search and constraint satisfaction problems, and
  • FO(ID) and the IDP System.
All approaches come with a good tool support for modeling and automated inferencing. After a few initial sessions to provide the basics, the students will be asked to logically model a certain domain and later present the result and explain the design decisions made.
