Recently, the use of the MapReduce framework for distributed RDF Schema reasoning has shown that it is possible to compute the deductive closure of sets of over a billion RDF triples within a reasonable time span , and that it is also possible to carry the approach over to OWL Horst . Following this lead, in this paper we provide a MapReduce algorithm for the description logic EL+, more precisely for the classification of EL+ ontologies. To do this, we first modify the algorithm usually used for EL+ classification. The modified algorithm can then be converted into a MapReduce algorithm along the same key ideas as used for RDF schema.
