Use of Ontology Alignment (OA) Systems in Practice: Questionnaire
This questionnaire aims at targeting users of ontology alignment systems and their applications in both industrial and academic use cases. In our setting ontology alignment covers both T-Box/schema matching and instance matching/link discovery tasks.
The questionnaire is open to everyone using ontology alignment systems. Participation has been obtained so far by direct invitation and distribution in relevant mailing lists.
