Hi all:

My name is Jose Emilio Labra Gayo, I am an Associate Professor at the
University of Oviedo, Spain. I have been the Dean of the School of
Computer Science Engineering from 2004 until 2012. I am currently the
main researcher of the WESO (Web Semantics Oviedo) research group. The
group is focused to practical applications of semantic web and linked
data technologies with several industrial partners like the National
Library of Congress, Chile, the Web Foundation, etc.

My research interests are Semantic Web technologies, Declarative
Programming Languages and Web Engineering in general.

In the last years, I have also been interested in multilingualism and
linked data. In particular, I presented some talks at the Multilingual
Web Workshops about Best Practices on Multilingual Linked Data and I
prepared a web page about multilingual linked data patterns:


In my opinion, although those patterns can be a first step, the next
steps should be made by the community.

Best regards, Jose Labra
