Generalisation Ontologies

The ontology called "GeneProcessOnto" is an attempt to collaboratively build an ontology for the definition of a shared vocabulary regarding generalisation processes, operations and algorithms. It is not exhaustive at all, and some modelling choices are still to be debated. The ontology is available on the web Protégé server (http://webprotege.stanford.edu) but you have to be registered to access.
