                            FINAL CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
                     The Twelfth International Workshop on 
                            ONTOLOGY MATCHING
                October 21st, 2017, ISWC Workshop Program, 
                                  Vienna, Austria 
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 
These correspondences can be used for various tasks, such as ontology 
merging, data interlinking, query answering or process mapping. 
Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed 
in 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, process mapping 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) 2017 campaign. 

3. To examine new uses, similarities and differences from database 
schema matching, which has received decades of attention 
but is just beginning to transition to mainstream tools.

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;
    Requirements to matching from specific application scenarios;
    Application of matching techniques in real-world scenarios;
    Formal foundations and frameworks for matching;
    Matching and big data;
    Matching and linked data;
    Instance matching, data interlinking and relations between them;
    Process model matching;
    Large-scale and efficient matching techniques;
    Matcher selection, combination and tuning;
    User involvement (including both technical and organizational 
    Explanations in matching;
    Social and collaborative matching;
    Uncertainty in matching;
    Reasoning with alignments;
    Alignment coherence and debugging;
    Alignment management;
    Matching for traditional applications (e.g., information integration);
    Matching for emerging 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 
as well as participating in the OAEI 2017 campaign. Technical papers 
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 2017 campaign have to follow the campaign 
and schedule at http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2017.

    August 24, 2017: Deadline for the notification of 
    September 15, 2017: Workshop camera ready copy submission.
