Alignment Ontology Design Patterns (Alignment OPs)
Alignment OPs refer to correspondences between ontologies. Each pattern models a relation between two entities or sets of entities in two ontologies. Instantiation of an Alignment OP results in a correspondence between elements of two given ontologies.


Ontology alignment aims at providing correspondences between ontologies modeling a similar domain. Alignment patterns are template representing frequent types of alignments occurring when aligning ontologies.

Example: Class correspondence with attribute value restriction
