Title: Using Abduction to Explain Missing Entailments in OWL Ontologies
Patrick Koopmann, TU Dresden

Abstract: With increasing complexity, understanding and debugging ontologies becomes a challenging task without the appropriate tool support. In particular, inferences performed by a reasoner may not always be straight-forward, meaning they may produce entailments that we did not expect, or fail to produce entailments that we did expect. While there are different techniques to explain entailments, this talk focusses on the problem of explaining why something does not follow from the ontology. In particular, we explain how abduction may be used towards solving this issue, and discuss challenges and solutions for performing abduction in practice.

Series Description
The IAOA [2] has created ESAO, a new educational effort directed towards topics of Applied Ontology, primarily established basics and foundations.

The series is inspired by the Interdisciplinary Schools on Applied Ontology (ISAO) [3] (whose next edition will be held in 2023). ESAO is complementary in format and its overall approach. The goal is to provide a combination of an archive of educational material (e.g., short video lectures) and a series of webinars for presenting and discussing that material.

Members of the Education Technical Committee of IAOA [2] and among those primarily (in alphabetical order):

* Lucía Gómez Álvarez
* Frank Loebe
* Sandra Lovrenčić
* Cassia Trojahn (Chair)
* Laure Vieu
