Hi all,

I have recently changed jobs, and moved continents in the process, to  
start up a new research group working mainly on ontologies and  
description logics at the Meraka Institute (http://www.meraka.org.za)  
in South Africa. At present  I am the only one in the group, but that  
will change soon. Before that I was a senior researcher in the  
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Group with NICTA (http:// 
www.nicta.com.au) in Sydney, Australia.

My background is in logic-based Artificial Intelligence. These days I  
try to apply that to description logics. See my (outdated-but-soon-to- 
be-updated) home page at http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~tmeyer/ for more  

I am happy to contribute where necessary and where my expertise  
enables me to do so.

Regrettably, I won't be able to attend the first F2F.
