Falcon-AO is an automatic tool for aligning ontologies. There are two matchers integrated in Falcon-AO: one is a matcher based on linguistic matching for ontologies, called LMO; the other is a matcher based on graph matching for ontologies, called GMO. In Falcon-AO, GMO takes the alignments generated by LMO as external input and outputs additional alignments. Reliable alignments are gained through LMO as well as GMO according to the concept of reliability. The reliability is obtained by observing the linguistic comparability and structural comparability of the two ontologies being compared. We have performed Falcon-AO on tests provided by OAEI 2005 campaign and got some preliminary results. In this paper, we describe the architecture and techniques of Falcon-AO in brief and present our results in more details. Finally, comments about test cases and lessons learnt from the campaign will be presented.
