I realized I never sent my intro before so here is a short introduction 
(better late than never :)  I am a senior researcher at Clark & Parsia, 
LLC and I am an alternate for Mike Smith. I won't repeat what Mike said 
below about C&P and our interests but I just want to say that as an 
alternate member I plan to keep my participation mostly to email 

Before joining C&P, I completed my thesis at the University of Maryland, 
College Park on combining Description Logic reasoning with AI planning 
techniques to solve Web service composition problems. During my graduate 
study, I have developed several Semantic Web tools, most importantly the 
OWL-DL reasoner Pellet which is now being commercially supported by C&P. 
I was also a member of the OWL-S coalition where I contributed to the 
development of OWL-S ontologies.
