Knowledge evolution is currently a hot research topic within the Semantic Web community. This paper investi gates a change-based Semantic Web, according to which any modification applied to an ontology should be logged. The merits of this approach for supporting the process of evolution are discussed. Subsequently, a number of basic problems concerning the management of such change logs are introduced, discussed and analyzed. Finally specific techniques and efficient algorithms for managing change logs are provided.
