Abstract: 
Ontology matching is a research area aiming at finding ways to make different ontologies interoperable. Solutions to the problem have been proposed from many disciplines, including databases, natural language processing, and machine learning. The role of foundational ontologies for ontology matching is an important one, it is multifaceted and with room for development. This paper presents an overview of the different tasks involved in ontology matching that consider foundational ontologies. We discuss the weaknesses of existing proposals and highlight the challenges to be addressed in the future.
