Abstract (English)

Knowledge graphs represent real-world entities and their relationships with each other, with a broad range of applications in various domains. In this paper, we argue that contextualized knowledge graphs fit naturally with air traffic management, which heavily depends on the timely flow of required information. In particular, we illustrate how the temporality concept of the Aeronautical Information Exchange Model is represented using contextualized knowledge graphs with a temporal dimension. We further explain what spatial, provenance, and other semantic dimensions of context are relevant for air traffic management. We draw from experience with past research projects on the benefits of employing semantic web technologies for air traffic management.
