Many algorithms dealing with thematching task have been proposed in the past, most of them not considering instances. Only a few existing systems like [EM07] or [DMDH04] use the information provided by instances in their matching algorithms. Due to the fact that ontologies offer the possibility to model instances within the ontology, these should definitely be used to increase the accuracy of the matching results. Additionally, the set of instances probably provides more information about the meaning of a concept than its label. Thus, we propose a new instance-based ontology matcher which should extend existing libraries to enhance the matching quality.
