introduction for Web Ontology Working Group

Hello, my name is Peter F. Patel-Schneider and I will be representing
Lucent Technologies in this working group.  (This representation has
already been authorized by our AC rep.)

I have been active in the Description Logics community for almost twenty
years now.  I have been involved in the design and implementation of
several representation systems and formalisms, including KRYPTON, KANDOR,
CLASSIC, NeoClassic, DLP, and DAML+OIL.  I expect to contribute my
experience in designing and analyzing representation formalisms related to
ontology languages and my experience in building systems that implement
such formalisms.  I expect to get out of the group a coherent design for a
web ontology formalism that will be used as a specification for modifying
existing ontology reasoners and systems and for building new reasoners and
systems.  Lucent Technologies expects to be able to use such reasoners and
systems in various areas, including efforts to build services that combine
telephony and data communications.

I agree to participate per the charter
