Apologies for cross-postings +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Call for ontology matching system participation +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ OAEI-2008 Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative in cooperation with the ISWC Ontology Matching workshop October 26, 2008 - Karlsruhe, Germany http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2008/ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ BRIEF DESCRIPTION Ontology matching is an important task for semantic system interoperability. Yet it is not easy to assess the respective qualities of available matching systems. The Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) is a coordinated international initiative set up for evaluating ontology matching systems. OAEI campaigns consist of applying matching systems to ontology pairs and evaluating their results. OAEI-2008 is the fifth OAEI campaign. It will consist of four tracks gathering eight data sets and different evaluation modalities. The tracks cover: (i) comparison track (systematic benchmark series); (ii) expressive ontologies (e.g., from the anatomy and environment domains); (iii) directories and thesauri (e.g., Google, Yahoo and crosslingual resources); (iv) consensus workshop. Anyone developing ontology matchers can participate by evaluating their systems and sending the results to the organizers. Tools for evaluating results and preliminary test bench tuning are available. Final results of the campaign will be presented at the Ontology Matching workshop and published in the proceedings. IMPORTANT DATES May 19th, 2008: First publication of test cases June 15th, 2008: Comments on test cases (any time before that date) July 1st, 2008: Final publication of test cases Sept. 1st, 2008: Preliminary results due (for interoperability-checking) Sept. 26th, 2008: Participants send final results and supporting papers Oct. 10th, 2008: Organizers publish results for comments Oct. 26th, 2008: OM-2008 workshop, Karlsruhe, DE + OAEI-2008 final results ready.
