Related Work

Part of the Semantic Web and Beyond book series (ADSW, volume 4)


Ontology alignment touches many related fields. Data integration but also ontology integration are not new topics. To ensure the reuse of existing ideas an extensive investigation on related work is necessary before an own innovative approach is developed. This chapter starts with theoretic considerations on alignment. It will then focus on other actual approaches for ontology alignment. We will reach out to related fields, in specific the integration efforts of the database community, which has been approaching this issue for many years. A good overview of related work is also given in de Bruijn et al. (2006).
