Ontology matching is still one of the hottest topics of Semantic Web research. The aim of this paper is three-fold. Firstly, to briefly update the research community about the"where we are now"in ontology matching. Secondly, to trigger discussion on dilemmas and critical questions as these were recently identified in the latest ontology-matching-related research events. Thirdly, to comment on visible challenges that may influence the future of this hot topic and consequently the Semantic Web research in general, pointing on the"where we shall we go"in the near future.
