Ontologies today are increasingly used as consensual knowledge representations in many distributed applications. However, if a system of knowledge based nodes is decentralized, the ontologies at those nodes differ. Therefore the alignment of knowledge representations is required. One of the promising approaches to solve this heterogeneity is the use of agents for aligning knowledge representations. The paper presents a brief survey of the approaches to agent-based ontology alignment. The
more » ... s of these approaches is grounded on the analysis of the requirements to ontology alignments by typical applications that address semantic heterogeneity in open and decentralized settings.
