Abstract
The amount of sources of information available on the web using ontologies as support continues to increase and is often heterogeneous and distributed. Ontology alignment is the solution to ensure semantic inter- operability. In this paper, we describe a new ontology alignment approach, which consists of combining structure-based and reasoning-based approaches in order to discover new semantic correspondences between entities of different ontologies. We used the biblio test of the benchmark series and anatomy series of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) 2012 evaluation campaign to evaluate the performance of our approach. We compared our approach successively with LogMap and YAM++ systems. We also analyzed the contribution of our method compared to structural and semantic methods. The results obtained show that our performance provides good performance. Indeed, these results are better than those of the LogMap system in terms of precision, recall, and F-measure. Our approach has also been proven to be more relevant than YAM++ for certain types of ontologies and significantly improves the structure-based and reasoning- based methods.
