Hi,

I am a senior consultant and researcher at DFKI
(Kaiserslautern branch), working on various
Semantic Web related project (e.g. in the Theseus project,
http://theseus-programm.de/front, formerly known as Quaero).
My main interests are rule languages and (obviously) ontology
languages.

My main goal for this working group is to make OWL a truly
usable ontology language for the Semantic Web, for which it
lacks some features at the moment (IMHO), e.g. (local) closed
world constructs and better modularization capabilities
(see [1] for some ideas we came up with in a Semantic
Desktop project where OWL (in whatever flavor)
"for everything" was IMHO simply not
possible, so we allowed the various parts of our knowledge
base to use different ontology languages by making use of
named graphs).

I will most likely be attending the F2F meeting in December.

Michael
