In the last few years, ontologies have been successfully exploited by Decision Support Systems (DSSs) to support some phases of the decision-making process. In this paper, we propose to employ an ontological representation for all the content both processed and produced by a DSS in answering requests. This semantic representation supports the DSS in the whole decision-making process, and it is capable of encoding (i) the request, (ii) the data relevant for it, and (iii) the conclusions/suggestions/decisions produced by the DSS. The proposed approach offers many advantages, and have been successfully implemented in an DSS for personalized environmental information, developed in the context of the PESCaDO EU project.
