We propose contextual similarities between a pair of nodes each coming from two graphs to be matched. This is done by considering their tensor product graph (TPG), where each node is an ordered pair of nodes of the operand graphs. Contextual similarities between a pair of nodes are computed by accumulating weighted walks terminating at their paired node in TPG. Once the contextual similarities are obtained, we formulate subgraph matching as a node and edge selection problem in TPG. We use contextual similarities to construct an objective function and optimize it with a linear programming approach.

The proposed method relies on the computation of the minimum cost subgraph matching.

This problem is modeled as a binary linear program were variables represent edit operations. Each edit operation is penalized with cost function. A setting of this cost functions defines the relative weights of each label attribute in the penalty computation.

In order to return a result in a reasonable time, a non optimal vertex association is returned, which corresponds to the best solution after a partial exploration of the solution tree.

The submitted results are a combination of results obtained with four different settings of the cost functions.
