Dear Ontology-Lexica Community Group,

My name is Paul Buitelaar and I am with Philipp Cimiano currently the 
co-chair of this group. Let me briefly introduce myself. I am a senior 
research fellow at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute 
(http://www.deri.ie/) at the National University of Ireland Galway, 
where I lead a research group on natural language processing 
(http://nlp.deri.ie/). My main research interests are in the development 
of natural language processing methods for semantic information access. 
In previous research I studied issues in computational lexical 
semantics, which was also the topic area of my PhD at Brandeis 
University, USA. In recent years I have focused on the application of 
natural language processing in ontology development and use, such as in 
ontology-based information extraction and ontology learning. My research 
in these areas lead me to some initial work on the enrichment of 
ontologies with lexical knowledge, which ultimately lead to the current 
work with Philipp and others on the definition and use of 
ontology-lexicon models. I consider an ontology-lexicon to be the 
interface between knowledge and text, connecting the semantics of domain 
objects with linguistic information on words and terms that are used to 
refer to these domain objects in natural language.

I am looking forward to discussing with you these and related research 
issues in this community group as well as working with you towards a 
common format for the representation of ontology-lexica.

With best regards
