Ontologies are defined as the formal specification of a shared conceptualisation of a domain of interest. Unlike most other ontology engineering methodologies, the DILIGENT methodology aims specifically at the collaborative and distributed building of ontologies, providing a rich argumentation framework in order to quickly proceed with building the ontology and track all relevant discussions about the conceptualisation.
Based upon first experience with the DILIGENT methodology, we designed a tool to support engineers and domain experts to follow the DILIGENT processes. In this paper we present the requirements, personas and scenarios our work is based upon, derived from our experience with ontology building, and the resulting design and state of the ongoing implementation, in order to get timely feedback for the further development of an DILIGENT based collaborative ontology engineering environment.
