Hi everybody,

My general research areas are finite model search and constraint based configuration.
I have been leading since 2002 a group working on configuration in Marseille where we both study
ways to break symmetries in configuration search, and applications fields for this
technique. We are using ILOG's Configurator, a search engine grounded on a combination
of description logics and constraint programming. We put configuration to work in two
areas: natural language processing and semantic web service composition.

I have been active in the semantic web since the inception of the DIP project
with Patrick Albert (ILOG) and Mathias Kleiner (ILOG/State funcded Phd).

I am happy to participate to this working group, with the aim to contribute to long lasting
and widely accepted foundations to the semantic web, by bringing my experience in SWS composition.

My main affiliations for teaching and research are mentioned below.

Please forgive my inexperience in the methods of W3C working groups. I may ask for
some help from time to time, and I hope to learn fast.
