Axel Polleres

I represent DERI on the RDF WG (alternate, main representative will be Richard Cyganiak). DERI has a wide interest in RDF, Linked Data and is developing various tools and applications around it. My personal interest is on foundations, extensions and applications of RDF, and querying RDF, see also contributions to the RDF Next steps workshop I was involved in [1,2]. Accordingly, as for the concrete point on the charter, my interests are at standardizing a model and semantics for multiple graphs and graphs stores, see some initial thoughts, as well as standardizing a subset of RDF/XML suitable for processing with standard XML tools.
