This is the home page of the PROTON Ontology (PROTo ONtology). It has been developed in the scope of the SEKT Project. Some important URL-s, relating to PROTON, follow below.
The PROTON Knowledge Management ontology is the new, fourth module, already part of PROTON. This ontology module is actually the SEKT-specific domain ontology (former SKULO - SEKT Knowledge Management Upper Level Ontology), that has been integrated in PROTON for easier management and consistency. It is only dependent on the System and Top modules and not on the Upper module. The namespaces of PROTON are different, as shown below (check the old ones here).
PROTON is split into 4 modules, which can be accessed as follows:
Updated Documentation of PROTON!

PROTON is a development of the KIMO ontology, which had been created and used in the scope of the KIM platform for semantic annotation, indexing, and retrieval. A part of the KIMO ontology (the predecessor of PROTON) was specific to the KIM Platform, therefore all this information was taken out of the PROTON ontology and it was organized into two separate, KIM-specific modules, available as follows:
Mappings of the KIMO URIs to the PROTON URIs: the local names of almost all the classes and properties are preserved and the mappings relate old (KIMO) URIs to the corresponding modules of PROTON.
