Greetings everyone and apologies for a late introduction,

I am Alex Constantin, a PhD student at The University of Manchester, UK,
School of Computer Science [1], under the supervision of prof. Andrei
Voronkov [2].

The goal of our research is to develop a modern and permanently changing
(live)
Computer Science topic ontology by using the vast amount of information
stored
in the CMS EasyChair [3]. We have started with CS because of the familiarity
with
the subject and the fact that it is the dominant topic of interest in
EasyChair, but
similar ontologies or vocabularies could be extracted as well.
This task encompasses a range of topics and fields such as text mining,
ontology
engineering, extraction & alignment, scientometrics and the like.

My interests in the XG are mainly related to the Semantic Web and Management
of Data side, such as the extraction of semantic data or ontology discovery
and
dissemination. I am eager to explore how dynamic topic ontologies that
follow
the most recent research trends can contribute to the XG's goal of
increasing
interoperability.

The same as other members, it is a novel experience for me to be part of an
W3C
XG. I hope to get up to speed with procedures quickly & will to my best to
participate
actively in meetings. I am confident that this will be a fruitful
experience.

Kind Regards,
Alex
