SemMF - A Semantic Matching Framework

SemMF is a flexible framework for calculating semantic similarity between objects that are represented as arbitrary RDF graphs. The framework allows taxonomic and non-taxonomic concept matching techniques to be applied to selected object properties. Moreover, new concept matchers are easily integrated into SemMF by implementing a simple interface, thus making it applicable in a wide range of different use case scenarios.

A poster from the International Semantic Web Conference (2005) about SemMF is available at sites.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/suhl/radek/pub/SemMF_ISWC2005.pdf
