Ontology development is a collaborative process that can involve several persons participating in different ways. The evolution of Web Services technology has facilitated collaboration on the Web, providing the means for simultaneous editing, change tracking and storing files on the cloud. Ontology development teams could greatly benefit from these collaboration features, which until now have been applied mainly to document processing. In this work, we introduce CLONE, a light-weight, Web based ontology editor that provides a real-time collaborative environment for creating and editing RDF and OWL ontologies. CLONE is designed using a component-based, service-oriented architecture taking advantages of the easy extensibility and scalability features of this approach. CLONE provides all the essential features of stand-alone ontology editors, as well as significant collaboration features, including simultaneous editing, change history, team conversations and role-based access-control mechanisms.
