Apologies for cross-postings -------------------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Fifth International Workshop on ONTOLOGY MATCHING (OM-2010) http://om2010.ontologymatching.org/ November 7, 2010, ISWC'10 Workshop Program, Shanghai, China 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. 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 and data translation. Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed in the matched ontologies to interoperate. The workshop has two 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) 2010 campaign: http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2010/. The particular focus of this year's OAEI campaign is on real-world specific matching tasks involving, e.g., biomedical ontologies and linked data. Therefore, the ontology matching evaluation initiative itself will provide a solid ground for discussion of how well the current approaches are meeting business needs. TOPICS of interest include but are not limited to: Business and use cases for matching (e.g., open linked data); Requirements to matching from specific domains; Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios; Formal foundations and frameworks for ontology matching; Ontology matching patterns; Instance matching; Large-scale ontology matching evaluation; Performance of matching techniques; Matcher selection and self-configuration; Uncertainty in ontology matching; 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 2010 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=om20100 Contributors to the OAEI 2010 campaign have to follow the campaign conditions and schedule at http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2010/. *TENTATIVE* IMPORTANT DATES FOR TECHNICAL PAPERS AND POSTERS: September 1, 2010: Deadline for the submission of papers. September 27, 2010: Deadline for the notification of acceptance/rejection. October 12, 2010: Workshop camera ready copy submission.
