A network of ontologies is a distributed system, whose components (constituent ontologies) are interacting and interoperating, the result of this interaction being, either the extension of local assertions, valid within each individual ontology, to global assertions holding between remote ontology entities, or to remote induced local assertions holding between local entities of an ontology, but induced by remote ontologies. The mechanism for this interaction is entailment and a crucial issue is to characterize the global, network induced entailments and propagate local knowledge through the network, in order to retain the consistency of the whole network and, thus, to extract meaningful results from the global knowledge emerged from a particular network of aligned ontologies. In this paper, we focus only on the first step of this research direction, that is, the ontology representation as a path category upon which operations will be defined in the future, in order to formalize the characterization of entailments in a network of aligned ontologies.
