** Apologies for multiple postings **
The Fifteenth International Workshop on
November 2nd or 3rd, 2020, International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) Workshop Program,
Ontology matching is a key interoperability enabler for the Semantic Web, as well as a useful technique in some classical data integration tasks dealing with the semantic heterogeneity problem. It takes 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 interlinking, query answering or navigation over knowledge graphs.
Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed with the matched ontologies to interoperate.
The workshop has three goals:
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, especially with respect to data interlinking, knowledge graph and web table matching tasks.
To conduct an extensive and rigorous evaluation of ontology matching and instance matching (link discovery) approaches through the OAEI (Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative) 2020 campaign:
To examine similarities and differences from other, old, new and emerging, techniques and usages, such as web table matching or knowledge embeddings.
This year, in sync with the main conference, we encourage submissions specifically devoted to: (i) datasets, benchmarks and replication studies, services, software, methodologies, protocols and measures (not necessarily related to 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., big, open, closed data);
Requirements to matching from specific application scenarios (e.g., public sector, homeland security);
Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios (e.g., in cloud, with mobile apps);
Formal foundations and frameworks for matching;
Novel matching methods, including link prediction, ontology-based access;
Matching and knowledge graphs;
Matching and deep learning;
Matching and embeddings;
Matching and big data;
Matching and linked data;
Instance matching, data interlinking and relations between them;
Privacy-aware matching;
Process model matching;
Large-scale and efficient matching techniques;
Matcher selection, combination and tuning;
User involvement (including both technical and organizational aspects);
Explanations in matching;
Social and collaborative matching;
Uncertainty in matching;
Expressive alignments;
Reasoning with alignments;
Alignment coherence and debugging;
Alignment management;
Matching for traditional applications (e.g., data science);
Matching for emerging applications (e.g., web tables, knowledge graphs).
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 2020 campaign. Long technical papers should be of max. 12 pages. Short technical papers should be of max. 5 pages.
Posters/statements of interest should not exceed 2 pages.
All contributions have to be prepared using the LNCS Style:
and should be submitted in PDF format (no later than August 10th, 2020) through the workshop submission site at:
Contributors to the OAEI 2020 campaign have to follow the campaign conditions and schedule at http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2020/.
August 10th, 2020: Deadline for the submission of papers.
September 11th, 2020: Deadline for the notification of acceptance/rejection.
September 21st, 2020: Workshop camera ready copy submission.
November 2nd or 3rd, 2020: OM-2020, Virtual Conference.
Contributions will be refereed by the Program Committee.
Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as a volume of CEUR-WS as well as indexed on DBLP.
