Resolving the semantic heterogeneity in the semantic web requires finding correspondences between ontologies describing resources. In particular, with the explosive growth of data sets in the Linked Open Data, linking multiple vocabularies and ontologies simultaneously, known as holistic matching problem, becomes necessary. Currently, most state-of-the-art matching approaches are limited to pairwise matching. In this paper, we propose a holistic ontology matching approach that is modeled… 
Boosting Holistic Ontology Matching: Generating Graph Clique-Based Relaxed Reference Alignments for Holistic Evaluation
This paper presents a methodology for constructing pseudo-holistic reference alignments from available pairwise ones, and argues that fostering the development of holistic matching approaches depends on the availability of such data sets.
Extending AgreementMakerLight to Perform Holistic Ontology Matching
This poster expands on the extensions applied to the AML system as the technical contribution that accompanies the In-Use Technology accepted submission ”Matching Multiple Ontologies to Build a Knowledge Graph for Personalized Medicine”.
Survey on complex ontology matching
An overview of the different complex matching approaches is provided and a classification of thecomplex matching approaches based on their specificities (i.e., type of correspondences, guiding structure) is proposed.
Ontology Matching: OM-2018: Proceedings of the ISWC Workshop
This paper focuses on ontology matching, which takes ontologies as input and determines as output an alignment, that is, a set of correspondences between the semantically related entities of those ontologies.
POMap: An Effective Pairwise Ontology Matching System
POMap, an ontology matching system based on a syntactic study covering element and structural levels is presented, which has adopted the best configuration based on the analysis of the performances of many string similarity measures associated with their thresholds.
A proposal for optimizing internetwork matching of ontologies
This paper introduces an approach to reduce the number of potential correspondences, therefore optimizing the process of creating a network of ontologies, and conducts a preliminary experiment, showing the potential of the proposed approach.
Why the mapping process in ontology integration deserves attention
This work presents a high-level integration workflow as a clear guideline for the whole process of ontology integration, and identifies open issues in this integration step and discusses the ensuing challenges.
Matching Multiple Ontologies to Build a Knowledge Graph for Personalized Medicine
A novel holistic ontology alignment strategy building on AgreementMakerLight that clusters ontologies based on their semantic overlap measured by fast matching techniques with a high degree of confidence, and then applies more sophisticated matching techniques within each cluster.
hMatcher: Matching Schemas Holistically
Schema matching is critical for applications that manipulate data across heterogeneous, autonomous and scattered data sources. We pick the schema matching approach based on the total number of data
Tackling the challenges of matching biomedical ontologies
It is demonstrated that the linear complexity of the hash-based searching strategy implemented by most state-of-the-art ontology matching systems is essential for matching large biomedical ontologies efficiently, and that translating traditional matching algorithms to the hash -based searching paradigm will be a critical direction for the future development of the field.


A Linear Program for Holistic Matching: Assessment on Schema Matching Benchmark
A linear program is proposed, named LP4HM, which extends the maximum-weighted graph matching problem with different linear constraints, and shows competitive results compared to other tools, in particular for recall and HSR quality measures.
Similarity-Based Ontology Alignment in OWL-Lite
A universal measure for comparing the entities of two ontologies that is based on a simple and homogeneous comparison principle and one-to-many relationships and circularity in entity descriptions constitute the key difficulties.

  • 2011
This work provides an overview about recently proposed approaches to achieve high match quality or/and high efficiency for large-scale matching and covers approaches on early pruning of the search space, divide and conquer strategies, parallel matching, tuning matcher combinations, and holistic schema matching.
Semantic Matching: Algorithms and Implementation
We view match as an operator that takes two graph-like structures (e.g., classifications, XML schemas) and produces a mapping between the nodes of these graphs that correspond semantically to each
LogMap: Logic-Based and Scalable Ontology Matching
This paper presents LogMap--a highly scalable ontology matching system with 'built-in' reasoning and diagnosis capabilities, and is the only matching system that can deal with semantically rich ontologies containing tens (and even hundreds of thousands of classes).
Semantic Precision and Recall for Ontology Alignment Evaluation
Drawing on previous syntactic generalizations of precision and recall, semantically justified measures that satisfy maximal precision and maximal recall for correct and complete alignments is proposed, which are compatible with classical Precision and recall and can be computed.
Alignment incoherence in ontology matching
Results show that taking alignment incoherence into account has a positive impact on the precision of the alignment and that the proposed approach can help a human to save effort in the revision process.
CODI: Combinatorial Optimization for Data Integration: results for OAEI 2011
The system provides a declarative framework for the alignment of individuals, concepts, and properties of two heterogeneous ontologies that leverages both logical schema information and lexical similarity measures with a well-defined semantics for A-Box and T-Box matching.
A Comparative Evaluation of String Similarity Metrics for Ontology Alignment
This paper analyzes naming variations in competing ontologies, then evaluates a wide range of string similarity metrics, and can get some heuristic strategies to achieve better alignment results with regard to efiectiveness and e‐ciency.
Discovering complex matchings across web query interfaces: a correlation mining approach
This paper develops the DCM framework, which consists of data preparation, dual mining of positive and negative correlations, and finally matching selection, and introduces a new correlation measure, $H$-measure, distinct from those proposed in previous work.
