Dear all,

My name is Mark van Assem, a post-doc working at VU University 
Amsterdam. I will be joining the XG. I thought I'd write an email to 
introduce myself a bit, so here goes.

During my thesis work -which I just completed [1]- I was involved in 
conversion and representation of vocabularies, e.g. MeSH and WordNet 
(editor at the WN TF of SWBPWG, published at W3C [2]) and participating 
in the early SKOS days before Antoine got on board. The interaction with 
the SKOS and WN TF communities was great and influential in my work.

I also did some work on representing the VRA metadata element set in RDF 
[3] for the W3C MM TF and MultimediaN E-Culture project [4] and thus 
became interested in Dublin Core and the notion of Application Profiles. 
Tom Baker was part of my PhD defense committee and helped me greatly in 
shaping that chapter of my thesis.

My current work is in close cooperation with Wageningen University, with 
prof. Jan Top's Information Management group [5]. I just got a paper 
accepted at ISWC [6] about automatically annotating tables with 
quantitative (food) research data, using an ontology of Quantities and 
Units [7].

In the XG there are a number interesting use cases I could participate 
in, and I would be particularly interested in use cases that address 
annotation of materials such as scientific data and scientific papers.

I look forward to interacting with you and seeing you at the F2F soon!

Mark van Assem.
