In this paper, we present automated techniques for bootstrapping and populating specialized domain ontologies by organizing and mining a set of relevant overlapping Web sites provided by the user. We develop algorithms that detect and utilize HTML regularities in the Web documents to turn them into hierarchical semantic structures encoded as XML. Next, we present tree-mining algorithms that identify key domain concepts and their taxonomical relationships. We also extract semi-structured concept
