Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative - OAEI-2024 CampaignOAEI

Digital Humanities (DH)

General description

The Digital Humanities (DH) track is newly established for OAEI 2024. It aims at the alignment of highly technical, multilingual domain vocabularies. The high quality reference is compiled manually, ensuring semantic, lexical and part-of-speech similarity. It offers different test cases from a subset of the Humanities: archaeology, cultural history and the interlink of DH and computer science. The goal is to evaluate the matching system perfomance when dealing with small datasets in different languages and specialist terms.

Dataset description

The resources and a comprehensive description is available in the DH-benchmark github repo. Each test case consists of a source and a target ontology and a manual reference alignment. For data provenance, see github description for more details.


There are four different archaeology test cases available:

Cultural History

There are two different cultural history test cases available:

DH and computer science

There are two different DH/computer science test cases available:


MELT will be used and the output of the correspondences will automatically be evaluated against the manually complied reference by MELT. The evaluation will be based on precision, recall and F-measure. There will be additional criteria such as max. memory consumption and runtime.


The schedule is available at the OAEI 2024 main page.


The DH track is organised by Felix Kraus (https://www.scc.kit.edu/en/staff/14032.php).
