Ontologies form an indispensable basis for modeling and engineering languages for business enterprise and information systems, fostering a need for the integration of structural and behavioral aspects in domain-oriented ontologies.

Handbook of Ontologies for Business Interaction documents high-quality research addressing ontological issues that are relevant to the modeling of enterprises and information systems in general and business processes in particular covering both static and dynamic aspects of structural concepts. This authoritative handbook provides crucial reference content to researchers, practitioners, and scholars in the fields of language design, information systems, enterprise modeling, domain engineering, artificial intelligence and the Semantic Web.
