Abstract [en]

Query composition is an often complicated and cumbersome task for persons performing a literature search. This thesis is part of a project which aims to present possible queries to the user in form of natural language expressions. The thesis presents methods of ontology slice generation. Slices are parts of ontologies connecting two concepts along all possible paths between them. Those slices hence represent all relevant queries connecting the concepts and the paths can in a later step be translated into natural language expressions. Methods of slice alignment, connecting slices that originate from different ontologies, are also presented. The thesis concludes with some example scenarios and comparisons to related work.
