Software agents that operate on the Semantic Web have to deal with scenarios where the discovery and combination of the relevant information from a variety of heterogeneous sources becomes contradicting. One such application area of the Semantic Web is ontology mapping where different similarities have to be combined into a more reliable and coherent view, which might easily become unreliable if trust is not managed effectively between the different sources. In this paper we propose a solution for managing trust between contradicting beliefs in similarities for ontology mapping based on the fuzzy voting model.
