Using of Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) become useful for development and reengineering ontologies. ODPs represent encodings of best practices supporting ontology construction by facilitating reuse of proven solution principles. In this paper, we focus on Content ODPs (CDPs), which represent small ontology fragments that encode general use cases (e.g. participation in event, role playing, parts of object.). Content CDPs are used as building blocks during ontology development. In such cases they could be specializes, extends, integrates by user to obtain new composite CDP which would allow to provide more expressive representation of domain concept in the ontology being developed. But it may demands additional skills from the user. Therefore in this paper the automate selection of a CDP combination and subsequent synthesis of new composite CDP is considered.
