Thanks to progress performed by the knowledge engineering area,
powerful methods for designing and use of ontologies are provided. As
a result, the scientific and industrial communities have gained access
to an increasing number of ontologies and terminologies. For instance,
within the biomedical area, several dozens of orthogonal or generic
ontologies and terminologies are currently available thanks to the OBO
(Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies) or UMLS initiatives: the
objective is to make them interoperable and hence reusable.

The usage of an ontology or terminology is often characterized by
several factors between which we would name: application, scientific
or technical domain, language of data and of documents to be
processed, user profile, etc. All of them influence the content and
organization of the semantic resources (terminologies and
ontologies). Exploitation of these resources in this original context
ensures their optimal use and results.

We assume that reuse of such resources implies that at least one of
the designing factors is modified: application, user, domain
... Hence, the reuse implies also that an adaptation of ontologies and
terminologies is performed. This process appears to be necessary in
order to guarantee an optimized exploitation of the reused ontologies
and terminologies.
