There have also been some recent personnel changes in the Team.

Felix Sasaki joined the W3C Team as of 1 April to work within the Internationalization Activity. Felix is based at Keio University, in Japan.

Felix studied Japanese and Linguistics in Berlin, Nagoya (Japan) and Tokyo. Since 1999 he worked in the Department of Computational Linguistics and Text-technology, at the University of Bielefeld (Germany), where he finished his PhD in 2004. The PhD deals with the integration of heterogenous linguistic resources using XML-based (e.g.linguistic corpora) and RDF-based (e.g. lexica, conceptual models) representations.

Felix replaces Martin Dürst, who has left the W3C to take up a post at Aoyama Gakuin University in Japan. We wish Martin success for the future, and thank him for his dedication and hard work in leading the internationalization effort for many years. Richard Ishida now becomes Internationalization Activity Lead.
