Amy GuyRoles and Relationships as Context-Aware Properties on the Semantic Web


Data linkage and ontology matching have traditionally focused on creating a single link between items in a dataset, terminology or ontology. This one size mapping does not fit the myriad of use cases to which the data will be put. In order to make intelligent use of these mappings, users of the matches want to understand the justification of the mapping to interpret the meaning of the linking. This issue arises in many areas including healthcare, life sciences and disaster management.

This workshop will focus on the creation of mappings, modelling of justifications, and developing explanations. It will also address developing intuitive displays to present the consequences of these mappings to the user.

We are seeking theoretical techniques, use cases, software tools and applications to foster debate in this area.
