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.
