OM 2013 : The Eighth International Workshop on Ontology Matching
Conference Series : Ontology Matching
Call For Papers
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 the matching technology in real-life scenarios 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., open government data);
Requirements to matching from specific domains (e.g., energy);
Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios (e.g., with mobile apps);
Formal foundations and frameworks for matching;
Matching and big data;
Instance matching and data interlinking;
Performance of matching techniques;
Matcher selection and self-configuration;
User involvement (including both technical and organizational aspects);
Explanations in matching;
Social and collaborative matching;
Reasoning with alignments;
Matching for traditional applications (e.g., information integration);
Matching for emerging applications (e.g., linked data, search).
