Hi,

I am co-Chair of the working group. In my day job, I am a Professor  
in the Oxford University Computing Laboratory, and up until very  
recently I was a Professor at Manchester University School of  
Computer Science. I was a member of the W3C WebOnt working group that  
developed OWL, and was also involved in the development of its  
precursors, OIL and DAML+OIL. I have also been working for many years  
in the field of Description Logics, and in particular on the logics  
and reasoning systems that underpin the above mentioned languages.

You can find more information about me via my home page (http:// 
web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/oucl/work/ian.horrocks/), and full contact  
information on my personnel page (http://web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/oucl/ 
people/ian.horrocks.html).

What I hope and expect to get out of the WG is a W3C Recommendation  
that refines and extends OWL, the Web Ontology Language; along the  
way I hope to enjoy working with a lively and committed group of like  
minded individuals -- but failing that I suppose that I will have to  
put up with you lot.*

I hope to contribute "real work" whenever useful/necessary, but I  
expect my normal role to be mainly organisational.

I will be attending the F2F in December, and look forward to meeting  
many of you there.

Regards,
Ian
