Hello everybody,

I'm Francois Scharffe, PhD student at the Semantic Technology Institute 
in Innsbruck. I will graduate very soon and will join INRIA in Grenoble, 
France for a Postdoc as of the 1st of April (no joke !).
My main interest is the alignment of ontologies and the integration of 
semantic data. I've been during my PhD studies developping a language 
for representing complex alignments between ontologies, as well as a 
library of patterns of correspondences between ontologies entities. More 
recently I've started to work on a system for matching RDF datasets.
I'm interested in following the discussions of this group and to 
contribute whenever possible.
