Ontology matching is a crucial problem in the world of Semantic Web and other distributed, open world applications. Diversity in tools, knowledge, habits, language, interests and usually level of detail may drive in heterogeneity. Thus, many automated applications have been developed, implementing a large variety of matching techniques and similarity measures, with impressive results. However, there are situations where this is not enough and there must be human decision in order to create a… 
Alignment: A Hybrid, Interactive and Collaborative Ontology and Entity Matching Service
Alignment is presented, a collaborative, system aided, interactive ontology matching platform that offers a user-friendly environment for matching two ontologies with the aid of configurable similarity algorithms.
Developing a scientific knowledge graph through conceptual linking of academic classifications
The method aims to combine the broad scope of generic classifications of research areas with the specialized knowledge and domain fields of specific scientific classifications in order to build a unified scientific knowledge graph including all the research fields of the respective scientific areas in a common hierarchy.
A unified semantic sports concepts classification as a key device for multidimensional sports analysis
This work searches, extracts and collects all the distinct terms that are used by major basketball competitions websites, via NLP techniques to create a generic classification of concepts related to basketball actions, forming a key device of comparability and aggregation.
The current paper proposes multilevel event classification taxonomies that could be used in multimodal semantic processing and conceptualization approaches and leverages and combines the information of various game sources as play-by-play and text reports.


An API for Ontology Alignment
A format for expressing alignments in RDF is presented, which can be seen as an extension of the OWL API and shares some design goals with it, and how this API can be used for effectively aligning ontologies and completing partial alignments, thresholding alignments or generating axioms and transformations is shown.
User Validation in Ontology Alignment
A broad study on user validation of ontology alignments that encompasses three distinct but interrelated aspects: the profile of the user, the services of the alignment system, and its user interface is presented.
Ontology Matching: State of the Art and Future Challenges
It is conjecture that significant improvements can be obtained only by addressing important challenges for ontology matching and presents such challenges with insights on how to approach them, thereby aiming to direct research into the most promising tracks and to facilitate the progress of the field.
Silk - A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data
The Silk - Link Discovery Framework is presented, a tool for finding relationships between entities within different data sources and features a declarative language for specifying which types of RDF links should be discovered between data sources as well as which conditions entities must fulfill in order to be interlinked.
