Conflicts of Ontologies – Classification and Consensus-Based Methods for Resolving
Ontology can be treated as the background of an information system. If integration of some systems has to be performed, their ontologies must also be integrated. In this process it is often needed to resolve conflicts between ontologies. In this paper conflicts of ontologies are classified into classes and for each of them a method for conflict solving is proposed.
