Present CFP : 2015
The workshop encourages participation from academia, industry and user institutions with the emphasis on theoretical and practical aspects of ontology matching. On the one side, we expect representatives from industry and user organizations to present business cases and their requirements for ontology matching. On the other side, we expect academic participants to present their approaches vis-a-vis those requirements. The workshop provides an informal setting for researchers and practitioners from different related initiatives to meet and benefit from each other's work and requirements.
This year, in sync with the main conference, we encourage submissions specifically devoted to: (i) repeatable evaluations of the approaches proposed (not necessarily within OAEI) and (ii) application of ontology and instance matching technology in a specific domain and assessment of its usefulness to the final users.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Business and use cases for matching (e.g., big and open data);
Requirements to matching from specific domains (e.g., energy, public sector);
Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios (e.g., with mobile apps);
Formal foundations and frameworks for matching;
Matching and big and/or linked data;
Instance matching, data interlinking and relations between them;
Large-scale and efficient matching techniques;
Matcher selection, combination and tuning;
User involvement (including both technical and organizational aspects);
Explanations in matching;
Social and collaborative matching;
Uncertainty in matching;
Reasoning with alignments;
Alignment coherence and debugging;
Matching for traditional applications (e.g., information integration);
Matching for emerging applications (e.g., search, web-services).
