      Call for ontology matching systems participation                         

       Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative
in cooperation with the ISWC Ontology Matching workshop
          November 11, 2007 - Busan, Korea

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
OAEI-2007 is the fourth OAEI campaign. It will consist
of four tracks gathering six data sets and different
evaluation modalities. The tracks cover:
(i) comparison track (systematic benchmark series);
(ii) expressive ontologies (e.g., from the anatomy domain);
(iii) directories and thesauri (e.g., Google, Yahoo);
(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.
