3rd Call for OAEI 2016 Systems + prize and special issue in JBS

--Apologies for cross-posting--

This is the third call for systems for the 2016 edition of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI): http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2016/

Since 2004, OAEI has been supporting the  extensive and rigorous evaluation of ontology matching and instance matching techniques.

This year we will have two new tracks (Disease and Phenotype, and Process Model Matching) and new datasets with respect to some of the last year tracks.


Authors of (1) the best biomedical-themed papers, (2) system papers with competitive results in the OAEI biomedical-themed tracks, and (3) biomedical-themed dataset descriptions will be invited to submit an extended version of their contributions to be considered in a special issue of the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS): http://jbiomedsem.biomedcentral.com/.

The Pistoia Alliance Ontologies Mapping project (http://www.pistoiaalliance.org/projects/ontologies-mapping/) team will organise the Disease and Phenotype track and
will sponsor a prize of $7,500 for the winner of this track.

Registration of tools/interest in participating: deadline on June 30th!
