TL;DR: Neologism 2.0: An easy-to-use vocabulary drafting tool for bootstrapping further (complex) ontology engineering with Protégé and co.
Abstract: Shared vocabularies and ontologies are essential for many applications. Although standards and recommendations already cover many areas, adaptations are usually necessary to represent concrete use-cases properly. Domain experts are unfamiliar with ontology engineering, which creates special requirements for needed tool support. Simple sketch applications are usually too imprecise, while comprehensive ontology editors are often too complicated for non-experts. We present Neologism 2.0 - an open-source tool for quick vocabulary creation through domain experts. Its guided vocabulary creation and its collaborative graph editor enable the quick creation of proper vocabularies, even for non-experts, and dramatically reduces the time and effort to draft vocabularies collaboratively. An RDF export allows quick bootstrapping of any other Semantic Web tool.
