Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel approach for domain modeling that combines two different types of models: (1) fuzzy ontology that describes the concepts of the domain and their relations in a formal way, and (2) association model that presents the associations between the terms of the domain. We utilize the combined model for query expansion by finding both highly associative and related concepts for the query terms. To demonstrate the feasibility of the model and its utilization, we use the query expansion in a search engine of chemical safety cards.
