Hi all in the SWD group,

following Guus' very good recommendation, I wanted to introduce myself a
little to the group.

I'm one of the two new members from DERI, Galway (the other one is Siggi
Handschuh). We are supposed to work mainly with Elisa on the vocabulary
management principles document (especially the parts related to
maintenance policies and version identification). I already sent around
a document with our basic ideas about possible contributions.

I have recently worked on the topic dynamics in ontology lifecycle
within a "dynamics-oriented" Knowledge Web research WP2.3, lead by Siggi
Handschuh. Our research in KW led to our membership in the SWD grop
(among other things). I hope that we will be able to transform this
research background into a responsible contribution to the
aforementioned document.

Something about my personal background - chronologically, I have a BA
from political sciences and from journalism and also BSc and MSc from
theoretical computer science (specialisation AI and NLP). Currently I am
a DERI, Galway intern and, in parallel, a PhD student at Masaryk
University, Czech Republic (since March, 2006), where I obtained all my
previous degrees. However, I am currently moving on a full-time PhD to
DERI, Galway, starting from April, 2007.

Besides the work on ontology dynamics in Knowledge Web, I have also a
little more "personal" research interests, related to an alternative
inference paradigms that could provide meaningful and efficient (though
not complete and formally decidable) reasoning for and in learned

Feel free to ask for anything else you'd like to know! I look forward to
the cooperation in the group.

Best regards,
