MetadataShow full item record
Preference is a superiority state to determine the preferable or the superior of one entity, property or constraint to another from a specified selection set. Preference issue is heavily studied in Semantic Web research area. The existing preference management approaches only consider the importance of concepts for capturing users' interests. This paper presents a metamodeling approach to preference management. Preference meta model consists of concepts and semantic relations to represent users' interests. Users may have the same type preferences in different domains. Thus, metamodeling must be used to define similar preferences for interoperability in different domains. In this paper, preference meta model defines a general storage structure to manage different types of preferences for personalized applications.
