                   The Eighth International Workshop on 
                            ONTOLOGY MATCHING
                                  (OM-2013)
                   http://om2013.ontologymatching.org/
      October 21st or 22nd, 2013, ISWC Workshop Program, Sydney, Australia 
 

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) 
2013 campaign: http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2013/. 
The particular focus of this year's OAEI campaign is on real-world 
specific matching tasks as well as on evaluation of interactive matchers.
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 (e.g., energy); 
    Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios (e.g., with mobile apps); 
    Formal foundations and frameworks for matching; 
    Matching patterns; 
    Matching and big data; 
    Entity matching;
    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 emerging applications (e.g., linked data, search).
