State of the art ontology matching techniques are limited to detect simple correspondences between atomic concepts and properties. Nevertheless, for many concepts and properties atomic counterparts will not exist, while it is possible to construct equivalent complex concept and property descriptions. We define a correspondence where at least one of the(More)
Ontology matching consists of finding correspondences between semantically related entities of two ontologies. OAEI campaigns aim at comparing ontology matching systems on precisely defined test cases. These test cases can use ontologies of different nature (from simple thesauri to expressive OWL on-tologies) and use different modalities, e.g., blind(More)

With a growing number of ontologies used in the semantic web, agents can fully make sense of different datasets only if correspondences between those ontologies are known. Ontology matching tools have been proposed to find such correspondences. While the current research focus is mainly on fully automatic matching tools, some approaches have been proposed(More)

With a growing number of ontologies and datasets using those on-tologies, ontology mappings become an essential building block of the Semantic Web. In the last years, a larger number of sophisticated ontology matching tools for generating such mappings has been developed. The quality of the mappings provided by those tools typically depends on the settings(More)
Research data and publications are usually stored in separate and structurally distinct information systems. Often, links between these resources are not explicitly available which complicates the search for previous research. In this paper, we propose a pattern induction method for the detection of study references in full texts. Since these references are(More)
Current ontology matching techniques focus on detecting correspondences between atomic concepts and properties. Nevertheless, it is necessary and possible to detect correspondences between complex concept or property descriptions. In this paper, we demonstrate how complex matching can benefit from natural language processing techniques, and propose an(More)
