In the field of linked data, interlinking previously unlinked datasets that are available on the linked open cloud is still a big challenge. Silk is one of the tools that allow one to do interlinking between data items within different linked data sources. The main goal of our work is to simplify the process of specifying linking conditions using Silk. Specifying the correct  conditions in the Silk-LSL is a complex task where a helpful interface can make a large difference. In this work, we propose Silk Magic as a useful tool that is capable of guiding the users through the process of specifying linking conditions during the creation of the Silk LSL program and hence simplifies the task of writing Silk-LSL programs. The tool for example allows to display the conditions as an interactive tree, and offers suggestions for class selection conditions and step expressions in path expressions.

A PDF file will be made available on August 5, 2013, through the WikiSym + OpenSym 2013 conference proceedings.
