In This work we present COE, a peer-to-peer collaborative ontology editor, which supports creation, edition, sharing, and reuse of ontologies. COE was implemented on top of a general-purpose peer-to-peer framework, COPPEER. Ontologies are particularly useful as a design tool because they render the communication between people and the interoperability between systems easier. In large multidisciplinary design projects, ontologies can be a critical success factor. The collaborative creation of ontologies allows for better understanding among participants of a project and economy of resource among projects. Meanwhile, a P2P approach is expected to enable new modes of collaboration.
