[bpmlod] introductions

Dear Community Group members,

We would like to start a thread to allow all the members to introduce
themselves in a few lines, briefly mentioning their current
affiliation, research interests and motivation for participating in
the "Best Practises for Multilingual LOD" group. Let me start myself:

My name is Jorge Gracia. I am a post-doctoral researcher at Ontology
Engineering Group (OEG), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). I
got my PhD in Computer Science at University of Zaragoza, with a
thesis about "Integration and Disambiguation Techniques for Semantic
Heterogeneity Reduction on the Web", which comprised sense discovery,
matching and disambiguation techniques in the context of the Semantic
Web. (You can find more information about me at

Recently I focused on the multilingual dimension of the Web of Data,
as a more extreme case of semantic heterogeneity on the Web. In that
context I have been working on the Monnet project, and currently I am
very interested in the areas of cross-lingual ontology matching and
instance matching. I will co-chair the group on Best Practises for
Multilingual LOD

Looking forward to a great collaboration!
