[Apologies for cross posting]

At the address http://www.instancematching.org a new web site about  
instance matching is available for discussing and notifying problems  
and initiatives about instance matching.

Instance matching is seen as a specific subtask of the more general  
problem of ontology matching and, for this reason, IM.org has been  
created in collaboration with http://www.ontologymatching.org starting  
from the experience of the instance matching evaluation track of OAEI  
2009 ( http://oaei.ontologymatching.org/2009/ ).

If OM.org is the main reference resource about matching in general,  
IM.org should be seen more as a focused group on the specific field of  
instance matching.

Every user interested in instance matching is invited to subscribe the  
web site and submit articles, short comments, news or links about:
- Theoretical discussions and problems
- Methods and techniques for IM
- Experiences and empirical work
- Instance Matching evaluation
- Links to tools, datasets, initiatives
