Hi,

my name is Markus Krötzsch (Kroetzsch if you're short of umlauts), and I am a 
researcher at FZI/AIFB Karlsruhe, where I am also working on my doctoral 
thesis. I am also a member of RIF WG. My current semantic research is 
slightly schizophrenic:

* On the one hand, I am investigating tractable description logics and 
conjunctive query answering in various DLs. In this role, I expect this WG to 
fix some useful definitions for commonly used tractable OWL fragments.

* On the other hand, I am the maintainer and main developer of Semantic 
MediaWiki, which uses very lightweight ontologies, but which exports data 
that is OWL-DL compatible. In this role, I would especially like to see 
lightweight meta-modelling (punning), and some syntactical RDF compatibility.

== What I hope/expect to contribute ==

If all goes well, Semantic MediaWiki can become an early adopter of "OWL 1.1" 
(or however we will call it), which would probably lead to a rather large 
number of OWL1.1 files on the web. We are also willing to contribute to the 
specification of tractable fragments.

More information and contact details can be found at my homepage 
http://korrekt.org.

Cheers,

Markus

P.S. As already indicated, I will join F2F1.
