Data Integration is the problem of providing a uniform access to a set of autonomous and possibly heterogeneous data sources. In this talk I will survey the research on data integration I was involved in (in the last years) and I will briefly discuss current and future lines of research in the field. In particular, I will overview the work done on data integration under the mediation of an ontology, mainly focusing on the query answering problem. Also, I will present the activities I am currently carrying out on the problem of designing and maintaining ontology-based data integration integration systems.
