FYI -- some things we may find useful from this and previous workshops -- esp if we follow michel's thought about tool development

> 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).
