Hi,
To put it in simple terms for me :-)
Are you after the algorithms we use to identify when two instances are the same?
Best

Dear LODers,

There has been a couple of discussions already on this list on the need
for a vocabulary to represent correspondences between terms of different
vocabularies. We also saw recently various tools (e.g. Silk, ODDlinker)
allowing to automatically interlink datasets given a specification of
what should be linked.

However, there is currently no common way to publish and share this
information (i.e., not the links but the way to generate them, see [1]
for precision).

We are setting up an experiment [1] to see if it is possible to provide
useful services from this data. But for that purpose we need your help.

So this is a call for contribution: we are collecting any specification
of link generator for the LOD graph.

Of course, do not hesitate to comment on the idea or to tell us if you
want to be involved.

We promise a report on this by the end of summer (northern hemisphere :).

Cheers,
François
