Alignment API: Systems using the Alignment API
If you use the Alignment API and/or the Alignment server and are
willing to be included here (this certainly help supporting this work), do not
hesitate to contact us.
This list is obviously incomplete. Most of the systems have at least a
published reference. They are not necessarily independent from our work.
Systems embedding the Alignment API
These systems can use any implementation of the API and thus take
advantage of all matching system extending the API.
- [NeOn toolkit]
The NeOn toolkit has an Alignment plug-in based on the Alignment
API and Alignment server. It allows to match ontologies loaded in
the toolkit as well as search existing alignments in an Alignment
server. The plug-in for the NeOn toolkit is shiped with the Alignment
API and available through the NeOn toolkit plug-in installer.
ContentMap is a tool to help users anticipate the effect of merging
ontologies through alignments. For that purpose, it is able to
generate the consequences entailed by aligned ontologies and to detect
inconsistencies. It uses the Alignment API for expressing alignments.

- [Process Model Matching Contest @EMISA 2015]
The Alignment API is used for evaluating process matching systems in
the open Process Model Matching Contest. It is used for representing
alignments and references and to measure results provided by participants.
The process model matching contest has since been integrated to OAEI.
