Abstract

As the interest in the representation of context dependent knowledge in the Semantic Web has been recognized, a number of logic based solutions have been proposed in this regard. In our recent works, in response to this need, we presented the description logic-based Contextualized Knowledge Repository (CKR) framework. CKR is not only a theoretical framework, but it has been effectively implemented over state-of-the-art tools for the management of Semantic Web data: inference inside and across contexts has been realized in the form of forward SPARQL-based rules over different RDF named graphs. In this paper we present the first evaluation results for such CKR implementation. In particular, in first experiment we study its scalability with respect to different reasoning regimes. In a second experiment we analyze the effects of knowledge propagation on the computation of inferences. In a third experiment we study the effects of modularization of global knowledge with respect to local reasoning.
