A Conversion from HTML5 to OWL Ontology

Taimao Sun, Yiyeon Yoon, Wooju Kim


HTML5, new standard for web language, is being standardized corresponding to the development of web. Since several new semantic elements have been added into HTML5 standard, current Web Environment is becoming more and more semantic. In order to provide better user experience by using information extraction from HTML5 page, new HTML5 Elements should be mapped to a corresponding Ontology. In this research, we will focus on new semantic elements to build Ontology from HTML5 document. For this purpose, we will propose a methodology of Schema level mapping rule and instance mapping rule.
