Title of the project: OpenKnowledge, EU FP6 STREP

Position: Project manager at the University of Trento
Location: Trento, Italy, 2006 - 2008

Brief description: OpenKnowledge aims to create a new form of open, coordinated knowledge sharing architecture by focusing on semantics related to interaction and using this to avoid dependency on a priori semantic agreement and making instead semantic commitments incrementally at run time. This will make semantic web communities of practise easier to form and join without pre-engineering. The "Open" in OpenKnowledge thus is significant in two senses: it assumes an open system, which anyone may join at any time; it assumes openness to being joined, achieved through participation at low individual cost.

Title: Ontology Matching

Position: Creator/Administrator
Location: Virtual thematic information resource, 2005 - present

Brief description: We provide a repository of information devoted to different aspects of ontology matching. Ontology matching is a promising solution to the semantic heterogeneity problem. It finds correspondences between semantically related entities of the ontologies. These correspondences can be used for various tasks, such as ontology merging, query answering, data translation, or for navigation on the semantic web. Thus, matching ontologies enables the knowledge and data expressed in the matched ontologies to interoperate.
