The proliferation of ontologies and taxonomies in many domains increasingly demands the integration of multiple such ontologies. The goal of ontology integration is to merge two or more given ontologies in order to provide a unified view on the input ontologies while maintaining all information coming from them. We propose a new taxonomy merging algorithm that, given as input two taxonomies and an equivalence matching between them, can generate an integrated taxonomy in a fully automatic manner… 
ATOM: Automatic target-driven ontology merging
TLDR
A new automatic approach to merge large taxonomies such as product catalogs or web directories is demonstrated, based on an equivalence matching between a source and target taxonomy to merge them, that preserves the structure of the targetTaxonomy as much as possible.
CreaDO -- A Methodology to Create Domain Ontologies Using Parameter-Based Ontology Merging Techniques
TLDR
CreaDO focuses on performing a parameter-based ontology merge that allows the creation of a domain ontology only with relevant information for the ontology purpose, and aims to semi-automatically create domain ontologies.
Towards a Benchmark for Ontology Merging
TLDR
This work proposes the use of general metrics such as the relative coverage of the input ontologies, the compactness of the merge result as well as the degree of introduced redundancy to evaluate three merge approaches for different merge scenarios.
Improving Taxonomy Maintenance: Automated Splitting and Merging of Taxonomies
TLDR
This paper proposes a solution by dividing larger taxonomies into sub-taxonomies, which can be regarded as individual and independent taxonomie through compilation, so that they can be merged and put back into their original context.
Building a Domain Ontology in the Process of Linguistic Analysis of Text Resources
TLDR
The method of building a domain ontology based on the linguistic analysis of content of text resources is described, an example of the proposed approach is presented, and the architecture of the pipeline is presented.
Extraction of Semantic Trees from a Text while Constructing Domain Ontology
TLDR
The basis of the approach is the use of a pipeline of different linguistic methods of text analysis and the set of rules developed is used to build an ontology based on the content analysis of a text resource.
The Approach to Extracting Semantic Trees from Texts to Build an Ontology from Wiki-Resources
TLDR
The developed method is the algorithm for translating syntax trees of text fragments into the structures of semantic trees using a set of rules that can be combined into a domain ontology taking into account the built-in relations between objects in the wiki resource.
Evolution of the COMA match system
TLDR
The schema and ontology matching systems COMA and COMA++ are widely used in the community as a basis for comparison of new match approaches and lessons learned on strong points and remaining weaknesses are discussed.

FCA-MERGE: Bottom-Up Merging of Ontologies
TLDR
Techniques from natural language processing and formal concept analysis are applied to derive a lattice of concepts as a structural result of FCA-MERGE for merging ontologies following a bottom-up approach which offers a structural description of the merging process.
Interactive generation of integrated schemas
TLDR
An algorithm is developed that can systematically output, without duplication, all possible integrated schemas resulting from the previous choices, and facilitates the selection of the final integrated schema.
PROMPT: Algorithm and Tool for Automated Ontology Merging and Alignment
TLDR
PROMPT, an algorithm that provides a semi-automatic approach to ontology merging and alignment, is developed and implemented and is based on an extremely general knowledge model and therefore can be applied across various platforms.
An Environment for Merging and Testing Large Ontologies
TLDR
A new merging and diagnostic ontology environment called Chimaera is presented, which was developed to address issues in the context of HPKB and some initial tests of its effectiveness in merging tasks are reported on.
The Ontolingua Server: a tool for collaborative ontology construction
TLDR
This work has developed a set of tools and services to support the process of achieving consensus on commonly shared ontologies by geographically distributed groups, and describes applications using these tools to achieve consensus on ontologies and to integrate information.
Measuring the Quality of an Integrated Schema
TLDR
This paper extends metrics for an expert integrated schema by adding another metric that evaluates the structurality of an integrated schema and reports experiments results over 8 datasets with the most popular schema matching tools, namely COMA++ and Similarity Flooding.
A survey of approaches to automatic schema matching
TLDR
A taxonomy is presented that distinguishes between schema-level and instance-level, element- level and structure- level, and language-based and constraint-based matchers and is intended to be useful when comparing different approaches to schema matching, when developing a new match algorithm, and when implementing a schema matching component.
Schema and ontology matching with COMA++
TLDR
Different match strategies can be applied including various forms of reusing previously determined match results and a so-called fragment-based match approach which decomposes a large match problem into smaller problems.
