My name is Anita de Waard, I work for Elsevier's Advanced Technology Group
where my special interest is the semantic web and data standards. I am the
chair of the reed Elsevier data standards group, and as such working to get
Reed Elsevier back on board with W3C. I did a project on using drug
ontologies for disclosing life science information (DOPE). Recently, I
recieved a grant from the Dutch government to work on a semantic structure
for the scientific article, and will be based at the University of Utrecht
for half my time to work on that. I am interested in (discussing) ideas
about publishing scientific articles in more modular, knowledge-centric
ways, and connecting them through semantic web technologies (e.g. a first
small step for conference proceedings:
http://wiki.ontoworld.org/index.php/ABCDEF). 
My background is in (experimental low-temperature) physics, which I studied
in Leiden and Moscow.

>> leadership in the design and evolution of Semantic Web 
>> infrastructure. Responsibilities additionally include working with 
>> W3C members so that both working groups in the Semantic Web activity, 
>> as well as other W3C activities, produce Web standards and 
>> conventions that support Semantic Web requirements. Additionally, to 
>> build support among user and vendor communities for the Semantic Web 
>> by illustrating the benefits to those communities and means of 
>> participating in the creation of a Web of Data. And finally to 
>> establish liaisons with other technical standards bodies involved in 
>> Web-related technology to ensure compliance with existing Semantic 
>> Web standards and collect requirements for future W3C work in this
area.
