Hi all

My name is Juan Sequeda and I am a Ph.D student at the University of Texas
at Austin. We were at the RDBRDF Workshop last October and met many of
personally. Our position paper is [1].

Besides having "wrapper systems" where an existing domain ontology has to
exist and it needs to be mapped (relational database to ontology mapping),
we are working on automatic methods to transform database content and schema
to the Semantic Web (direct mapping of relational database to the semantic
web). Our may concern is how are all the current databases on the web going
to be appear in the Semantic Web. There has to be automatic methods! In the
wiki [2], Man Li et al (CODE) has been identified and he is part of the
"direct mapping" group. We have surveyed all the current approaches and have
taken the best and correct aspects of each. We have also created a notion of
completeness of transforming SQL Applications to the Semantic Web. We have
created are own formal and complete transformation system in FOL. Our paper
is currently in submission (not referenceable yet), but it can be seen in
[3]. We are starting our implementation process.

We are really excited to eagerly work with this group! We would also like to
offer UT-Austin as a F2F meeting.
