Abstract: It is essential to reduce the cost of integrating information sources and to provide a path that allows for incremental integration that can be responsive to users' demands. This paper presents an approach to integrating disparate heterogeneous information sources that uses context logic. Our use of context logic reduces the up-front cost of integration, provides an incremental integration path, and allows semantic conflicts within a single information sources or between information sources to be expressed and resolved.
