OLA stands for OWL Lite Alignment. This is the name of a method for computing alignments between two OWL (non necessary Lite) ontologies.

Its principle are exposed in Jérôme Euzenat, Petko Valtchev, Similarity-based ontology alignment in OWL-Lite, In: Ramon López de Mantaras, Lorenza Saitta (eds), Proc. 16th european conference on artificial intelligence (ECAI), Valencia (ES), pp333-337, 2004

The current version is Version 2.0: a complete reimplementation of OLA principles based on matrix computation.

This site and web pages are currently under full reengineering.

SBOA means Structure-Based Ontology Alignment

The OLA project is jointly developed by the Latece team at the Université du Québec à Montréal and the Exmo team at INRIA Rhône Alpes.

This work has been partially supported by grants from the French consulate in Montréal and the Centre Jacques Cartier of the Rhône-Alpes Region, France. Exmo has been funded in part by project IST-2004-507482 (Knowledge web). Version 1.0 was jointly developed by DIRO at University of Montréal and INRIA.
