Abstract: In this paper we consider a multiagent system with multiple ontologies. The agents maintain the ontologies individually which leads to frequent changes and possible knowledge inconsistencies. We propose a general framework for decision making about ontology alignment and negotiation which takes into account the properties of the actual communication network and utilizes the Deontic Logic formalism for reasoning.
