A good starting point might be the EU Knowledge Web project reports on 
ontology alignment. 
http://blog.simonprice.org/2005/12/11/state-of-the-art-on-ontology-alignment/

Related to this is the literature on record linkage, identity 
uncertainty, entity resolution, distances on structured data and a host 
of other names from slightly different communities.
