Apologies for cross-postings -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3rd CALL FOR PAPERS -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Sixth International Workshop on ONTOLOGY MATCHING (OM-2011) http://om2011.ontologymatching.org/ October 23 or 24, 2011, ISWC Workshop Program, Bonn, Germany BRIEF DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES Ontology matching is a key interoperability enabler for the Semantic Web, as well as a useful tactic in some classical data integration tasks dealing with the semantic heterogeneity problem. It takes the ontologies as input and determines as output an alignment, that is, a set of correspondences between the semantically related entities of those ontologies. These correspondences can be used for various tasks, such as ontology merging, data translation, query answering or navigation on the web of data. Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed in the matched ontologies to interoperate. The workshop has three goals: 1. To bring together leaders from academia, industry and user institutions to assess how academic advances are addressing real-world requirements. The workshop will strive to improve academic awareness of industrial and final user needs, and therefore, direct research towards those needs. Simultaneously, the workshop will serve to inform industry and user representatives about existing research efforts that may meet their requirements. The workshop will also investigate how the ontology matching technology is going to evolve. 2. To conduct an extensive and rigorous evaluation of ontology matching approaches through the OAEI (Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative) 2011 campaign: http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2011/. The particular focus of this year's OAEI campaign is on real-world specific matching tasks involving, e.g., open linked data and biomedical ontologies. Therefore, the ontology matching evaluation initiative itself will provide a solid ground for discussion of how well the current approaches are meeting business needs. 3. To examine similarities and differences from database schema matching, which has received decades of attention but is just beginning to transition to mainstream tools. 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; Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios; Formal foundations and frameworks for matching; Matching patterns; Instance matching and data interlinking; Large-scale matching evaluation; Performance of matching techniques; Matcher selection and self-configuration; User involvement (including both technical and organizational aspects); Explanations in matching; Social and collaborative matching; Alignment management; Reasoning with alignments; Matching for traditional applications (e.g., information integration); Matching for dynamic applications (e.g., search, web-services). SUBMISSIONS Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of technical papers and posters/statements of interest addressing different issues of ontology matching as well as participating in the OAEI 2011 campaign. Technical papers should be not longer than 12 pages using the LNCS Style: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 Posters/statements of interest should not exceed 2 pages and should be handled according to the guidelines for technical papers. All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and should be submitted through the workshop submission site at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=om2011 Contributors to the OAEI 2011 campaign have to follow the campaign conditions and schedule at http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2011/. IMPORTANT DATES FOR TECHNICAL PAPERS AND POSTERS: August 15, 2011: Deadline for the submission of papers. September 12, 2011: Deadline for the notification of acceptance/rejection. September 26, 2011: Workshop camera ready copy submission. October 23 or 24, 2011: OM-2011, the Maritim convention center, Bonn, Germany ORGANIZING COMMITTEE 1.
