Despite major progress in recent years, the problem of information
discovery and integration is still a significant challenge. It affects
questions like ensuring actuality and credibility of data, efficient
querying distributed sources, converting insufficient structured data
as well as combining data from different sources  and is addressed by
various current research areas, ranging from data integration and
mining to knowledge engineering and ontologies.

The combination of techniques from these areas, e.g., using domain
knowledge in data integration or mining, could lead to new
applications as well as to improvements of current approaches to data
integration and fusion. To meet this challenge the workshop is
designed to bring together researchers working in the areas of
databases, ontologies and information fusion, and to foster
collaboration among them.

The main topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Data integration and cleaning
* Ontology merging and aligning
* Cross-cultural ontologies
* Interaction between ontologies and lexicons (natural language)
* Foundations for cooperative & multi-user ontology engineering
* Architectures and performance
* Database-support for data mining
* Document and web content mining
* Relationship to research in similar research areas
* Emerging applications of information/integration/fusion/mining
