Abstract

We present a system called OntoZilla", which combines ontologies and P2P systems, with a vision of improving the process of information searching and facilitating greater integration as well as interoperability. In OntoZilla, peers supporting the same concept are grouped into the same cluster, and the relationships between clusters are modeled according to the concepts they specialize in. Therefore, a query belonging to a specifc concept can be routed to the suitable group of peers in a systematic way, thus supporting effcient concept search.
