Re: [bpmlod] introductions

Dear all,

I am Jose María, I am currently hold a position as Marie Curie Postdoc in
Cloud Computing but my PhD was focused on the topic of e-Procurement
applying semantics and the Linked Data principles [1], it has been
supervised by Jose Emilio Labra. I am very interested in knowledge
modelling and multilingual and multicultural character of data &

I hope to share my experience and contribute to this group!

Excellent regards,
