                            CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
              *  The Fourteenth International Workshop on*
                            *ONTOLOGY MATCHING*
                       October 26th or 27th, 2019,
 International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) Workshop Program,
                            Auckland, New Zealand

Ontology matching is a key interoperability enabler for the Semantic Web,
as well as a useful technique in some classical data integration tasks
dealing with the semantic heterogeneity problem. It takes 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 interlinking, query answering or process mapping.
Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed with 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, especially with respect to data
interlinking, process mapping and web table matching tasks.

2. To conduct an extensive and rigorous evaluation of ontology matching and
instance matching (link discovery) approaches through the OAEI (Ontology
Alignment Evaluation Initiative) 2019 campaign:

3. To examine new uses, 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) datasets, benchmarks and replication
studies, services,
software, methodologies, protocols and measures (not necessarily related to
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., big, open, closed data);
    Requirements to matching from specific application scenarios (e.g.,
public sector, homeland security);
    Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios (e.g., with
environmental data);
    Formal foundations and frameworks for matching;
    Matching and knowledge graphs;
    Matching and deep learning;
    Matching and embeddings;
    Matching and big data;
    Matching and linked data;
    Instance matching, data interlinking and relations between them;
    Privacy-aware matching;
    Process model matching;
    Large-scale and efficient matching techniques;
    Matcher selection, combination and tuning;
    User involvement (including both technical and organizational aspects);
    Explanations in matching;
    Social and collaborative matching;
    Uncertainty in matching;
    Reasoning with alignments;
    Alignment coherence and debugging;
    Alignment management;
    Matching for traditional applications (e.g., data science);
    Matching for emerging applications (e.g., web tables, knowledge graphs).

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 2019 campaign. Long technical
papers should be of max. 12 pages. Short technical papers should be of max.
5 pages. Posters/statements of interest should not exceed 2 pages. All
contributions have to be prepared using the LNCS Style:
should be submitted in PDF format (no later than June 28th, 2019) through
the workshop submission site at:

Contributors to the OAEI 2019 campaign have to follow the campaign
conditions and schedule at http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2019/

    *June 28th, 2019*: Deadline for the submission of papers.
    *July 24th, 2019*: Deadline for the notification of
    *August 26th, 2019*: Workshop camera ready copy submission.
    *October 26th or 27th, 2019*: OM-2019,  Auckland, New Zealand.

Contributions will be refereed by the Program Committee. Accepted papers
will be published in the workshop proceedings as a volume of CEUR-WS as
well as indexed on DBLP.
