This paper gives an outline of my PhD thesis which describes the integration of managing uncertainty into ontology mapping. Ontology mapping is one of the most important tasks for ontology interoperability and its main aim is to find semantic relationships between entities (i.e. concept, attribute, and relation) of two ontologies, However, in the process of mapping, uncertainty and incompleteness of semantics in the syntactic representation and description of relations between entities in ontologies will lead to imprecise results. If we want to obtain better results, it becomes more significant for the ontology mapping to be able to deal with uncertainty.
