One of the current challenges in ontology alignment is the user involvement in the alignment process. To obtain high-quality alignments user involvement is needed for validation of matching results ... 
Visualization for Ontology Evolution
One of the challenges for the ontology engineering community is the user involvement in the engineering process and there is a demand for tools to support the user in the design process.
Reducing the Search Space of Ontology Alignment Using Clustering Techniques
With the emerging amount of information available in the internet, how to make full use of this information becomes an urgent issue. One of the solutions is using ontology alignment to aggregate di
The Design and Implementation of Optimization Approaches for Large Scale Ontology Alignment in SAMBO
The current World Wide Web provides a convenient way for people to acquire information,but it does not have the ability to manipulate semantics. In other words, peoplecan access data from web pages
A Framework for Recommending Ontology Matching Systems based on Application Requirements
This paper proposes a novel ontology matching framework that uses automatic matchers recommendation to generate alignments and the differential of this work is the employment of application requirements as means of acquiring knowledge about a particular matching task.
User validation in ontology alignment: functional assessment and impact
A broad study on user validation of ontology alignments that encompasses three distinct but inter-related aspects: the profile of the user, the services of the alignment system, and its user interface is presented.
A rule-based DSS for transforming automatically-generated alignments into information integration alignments
A decision support system (DSS) based in a general-purpose rule engine that assists the expert on improving and completing the automatically-generated alignments into fully-fledged alignments, balancing the precision and recall of the system with the user participation in the process.
Interactive ontology matching: using expert feedback to select attribute mappings
A new approach to evaluate the benefit of also considering attribute mappings during the interactive phase of the process of interactive Ontology Matching, which was evaluated using the OAEI conference data set and showed an increase in recall without sacrificing precision.
DSS-Based Ontology Alignment in Solid Reference System Configuration
The approach taken to overcome the problems derived form the previous architecture is described, by adopting (i) ontologies for the specification of business concepts and (ii) an information-integration Decision Support System (DSS) for mapping the domain specific ontologies to the database schemas.
Comparison of Visualization Algorithms for Graphs and Implementation of Visualization Algorithm for Multi-Touch table using JavaFX
Ontologies are representations of specific domains. They help with understanding the concepts within these domains by providing definitions of their components and how they relate to each other. On


Requirements for and Evaluation of User Support for Large-Scale Ontology Alignment
This paper aims to provide a set of requirements that foster the user involvement for large-scale ontology alignment tasks by presenting and discussing the results of a literature study for 7 ontology alignments systems as well as a heuristic evaluation and an observational user study.
Towards Visualizing the Alignment of Large Biomedical Ontologies
The AgreementMakerLight system helps to visualize the relationships between the ontologies used to annotate biomedical data and helps to establish meaningful relationships between these ontologies.

This work proposes an approach where, in contrast to the other approaches, structural information is used as a filtering method in the alignment process, and evaluates the approach in terms of quality and performance.
Falcon-AO: A practical ontology matching system
Reducing the search space in ontology alignment using clustering techniques and topic identification
A method to prune that search space by using clustering techniques and topic identification and is able to generate partitions that allow for high quality alignments with a highly reduced effort for computation and validation of mapping suggestions for the parts of the ontologies in the partition.
Applying an Analytic Method for Matching Approach Selection
This work proposes a multilevel characteristic for matching approaches, which provides a basis for the comparison of different matchers and is used in the decision making process for selection the most appropriate algorithm.
Large-scale Interactive Ontology Matching: Algorithms and Implementation
In this paper we present the ontology matching system LogMap 2, a much improved version of its predecessor LogMap. LogMap 2 supports user interaction during the matching process, which is essential
Evaluation of Ontology Merging Tools in Bioinformatics
This paper evaluates two of the most well-known ontology merging tools with a bioinformatics perspective, Gene Ontology and Signal-Ontology.
Evaluation of ontology development tools for bioinformatics
Four tools for developing and maintaining ontologies are compared, Protégé-2000, Chimaera, DAG-Edit and OilEd; each system has its own strengths and weaknesses.
A Cognitive Support Framework for Ontology Mapping
This paper combines data gathered from background literature, theories of cognitive support and decision making, and an observational case study to propose a theoretical framework for cognitive support in ontology mapping tools and describes a tool called COGZ that is based on this framework.
