In this book, we have attempted at covering ontology matching in its diversity. In particular, we have shown that many applications may need ontology matching (Chap. 1) and that there are different forms of ontologies that may need to be matched (Chap. 2). Based on reasonable methodological rules (Chap. 3), ontology matching can take advantage of innumerable basic (Chap. 5) and advanced (Chap. 6) techniques composed and supervised in diverse ways (Chap. 7). This has led to a profusion of available systems (Chap. 8). The output of matching can be provided according to different representations (Chap. 10) or executable forms (Chap. 12) which may need to be communicated to users (Chap. 11).
