Abstract

The increasing number of methods available for ontology matching commands the evaluation of these methods.

Matching systems are difficult to compare, but the ontology matching field can only evolve if evaluation criteria are provided. These should help system designers assess the strengths and weaknesses of their systems as well as help application developers choose the most appropriate algorithm.
