Call for papers: Special Issue on

*Ontology and Linked Data Matching*


 The Semantic Web is growing in terms of both the amount and diversity of
data being published, yet leveraging this trove of information in a
cohesive way remains challenging. Ontology and Linked Data matching are
critical to achieving interoperability among resources on the Semantic Web.
Matching systems seek to create alignments between datasets that establish
correspondences between semantically related entities belonging to the
different datasets. Over the last decade, matching systems have made great
strides in finding equivalence relations between classes and instances, and
real-world applications making use of these capabilities have begun to
appear. Nevertheless, challenges stemming from the size, complexity, and
variety of relationships among resources on the Semantic Web today require
further technical and theoretical innovation. We welcome original papers
that address the following areas:

   - Large-scale matching
   - Complex matching (e.g. non-equivalence relations, expressive alignment
   languages, etc.)
   - Real-world applications
   - Interactive matching
   - Social and collaborative matching
   - Matching with background knowledge
   - Alignment repair and reasoning
   - Self-configuring matching systems
   - Alignment evaluation and benchmarks
   - Ontology design pattern-driven matching
