ISWC is the premier international conference in the field. This paper describes innovative work on dynamic mapping of heterogeneous knowledge structures, a fundamental enabling technology for the next generation of large-scale intelligent applications on the emerging semantic web. The ideas underlying this work have provided the scientific basis for two large EU FP6 projects, NeOn and OpenKnowledge (Prof. Motta co-ordinates the former and leads the OU contribution on the latter), worth £2M to The Open University. Each project was ranked first in its class. The work is situated in the context of a new paradigm for exploiting large scale semantics, which has been presented at invited keynotes at prestigious international fora, including the 1st Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2006) and the 5th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2006).
