I am serving as the alternate participant for DFKI GmbH
(German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence,
http://www.dfki.de/ ). Here's my bio sketch:

I studied computer science and economics at the University of Kaiserslautern,
Germany, and received the Diplom (master's degree) in 1996. Since then, I 
am working as a research scientist at the German Research Center for Artificial
Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) Kaiserslautern. In the research department for 
Intelligent Engineering Systems I investigated in the VEGA project logic 
programming and machine learning approaches for the maintenance of
knowledge-bases. Currently, I'm project leader of the FRODO project
( http://www.dfki.uni-kl.de/frodo/ ) where we develop a framework for building 
distributed organizational memories. In this framework we make intensive
use of (distributed) RDF-based ontologies. (Collaborative) acquisition of these
ontologies is based on Protege-2000 which we have extended to support
RDF messaging in a Jade-based agent framework. To do inferencing and
transformations on these ontologies, I am developing, together
with Stefan Decker from the Stanford DB Group, the (Horn-logics-based)
RDF query, inference, and transformation language TRIPLE
( http://www.dfki.uni-kl.de/frodo/triple/ ).

Nearest airport:

<apt:Airport rdf:about="http://www.megginson.com/exp/id/airports/EDDR">
  <apt:icao>EDDR</apt:icao>
  <apt:name>Saarbruecken / Ensheim, Germany </apt:name>
  <apt:latitude>49-13N</apt:latitude>
  <apt:longitude>007-07E</apt:longitude>
  <apt:elevation>320M</apt:elevation>
</apt:Airport>

In TRIPLE syntax:

rdfs := "http://www.w3.org/...".
apt := "http://www.megginson.com/exp/ns/airports#".
aptid := "http://www.megginson.com/exp/id/airports/".

aptid:EDDR[ 
  rdfs:type -> apt:Airport;
  apt:icao -> EDDR;
  apt:name -> "Saarbruecken / Ensheim, Germany";
  apt:latitude -> "49-13N";
  apt:longitude -> "007-07E";
  apt:elevation -> "320M"
