                            FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS:
            submission deadline is approaching: 15 days left 

                   The Fifth International Workshop on 
                            ONTOLOGY MATCHING
      November 7, 2010, ISWC'10 Workshop Program, Shanghai, China 

Ontology matching is a key interoperability enabler for the Semantic Web, 
as well as a useful tactic in some classical data integration tasks. 
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 and data translation. 
Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed 
in the matched ontologies to interoperate.

The workshop has two 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) 
2010 campaign: 
The particular focus of this year's OAEI campaign is on real-world 
specific matching tasks involving, e.g., biomedical ontologies and 
linked data. Therefore, the ontology matching evaluation initiative 
itself will provide a solid ground for discussion of how well 
the current approaches are meeting business needs. 

TOPICS of interest include but are not limited to: 
    Business and use cases for matching (e.g., open linked data); 
    Requirements to matching from specific domains; 
    Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios; 
    Formal foundations and frameworks for ontology matching; 
    Ontology matching patterns; 
    Instance matching; 
    Large-scale ontology matching evaluation; 
    Performance of matching techniques; 
    Matcher selection and self-configuration; 
    Uncertainty in ontology matching; 
    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). 

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 2010 campaign. Technical papers should 
be not longer than 12 pages using the LNCS Style:
Posters/statements of interest should not exceed 2 pages and 
should be handled according to the guidelines for technical papers. 
All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and should be submitted 
through the workshop submission site at: 

Contributors to the OAEI 2010 campaign have to follow the campaign conditions 
and schedule at 

September 1, 2010: Deadline for the submission of papers. 
September 27, 2010: Deadline for the notification of acceptance/rejection. 
October 12, 2010: Workshop camera ready copy submission.
