Bio: PhD from Univ. of Wisconsin - Madison in databases.
     I'm currently at HP Labs in Palo Alto, California.
     My previous work (at Bell Labs/Bellcore, MCC and HP
     Labs) was on next generation database management
     systems (e.g., object systems, main-memory systems)
     and on data mining/ data analytics. I worked with the
     HP Semantic Web team (in Bristol, UK) last year to help
     develop the storage subsystem for the second version
     of Jena.

     The best way to contact me is email (Kevin.Wilkinson@hp.com)

Interests/Expectations: I'm especially interested in the
     mapping between RDF and relational databases. I'm also
     interested in "closed" query language, i.e., queries
     that return graphs that can subsequently be queried.
     I'm concerned that RDF has not seen wider use and not
     gotten much interest from the database community which
     is focused on XML. I hope this working group can leverage
     some lessons from XMLQuery and develop a succinct,
     powerful yet relatively easy-to-implement specification.
