My name is Hector Gibran Ceballos Cancino. I'm a Computer Systems Engineer
and rigth now i'm studying a master's in Intelligent Systems at Instituto
Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) at Monterrey,
Mexico [3].

My thesis is about an intelligent agent that exploits an ontology and answer
queries from other agents in an agents collaborative environment. My work is
part of a project called JITIK (Just In Time Information and Knowledge)
started by researchers from the Center for Artificial Intelligence[1]. This
project has evoluted in several stages, one of them was RICA [2]. Rigth now
there are 6 students (me included) working on JITIK.

We'll use ontologies for classification purposes, representing interest
areas and  relationtionships between them. As part of my thesis I've to
choose an Ontology representation format and that's why I'm so interested in
a standard. By now I'll use DAML+OIL as tentative format.

I'm pretty interested in Ontology issues, not just for my thesis. So if I
can help in any way please let me know.

By the way, here is the information about the closest airport (taked from
http://www.w3.org/2001/06/airports.rdf):
