Revision as of 00:06, 28 November 2010

Markus Krötzsch

Since July 2010, I am doing research at the Computing Laboratory at the University of Oxford. Information about my research and teaching, contact details, and further relevant data can be found below.

Below is the brief personal description I currently use. There is also a page with a more detailed curriculum vitae.

Markus Krötzsch is a post-doctoral researcher at the Oxford University Computing Laboratory. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2010. His research interest is the intelligent automatic processing of information, ranging from the foundations of formal knowledge representation to application areas like the Semantic Web. He is the lead developer of the successful Semantic Web application platform Semantic MediaWiki, co-editor of the W3C OWL 2 specification, chief maintainer of the semanticweb.org community portal, and co-author of the textbook Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies.

Research

My research is focussed on information systems and (semantic) Web technologies, ranging from foundational studies in knowledge representation and reasoning to implementations of deployable systems (including the one that runs this site)

Teaching

Teaching and mentoring are important parts of academic research. Educating students is a part of this, but there are many other opportunities to share knowledge. In a sense, the purpose of all scientific communication is teaching (why else would we publish?). This page, however, is about teaching activities of an introductory nature: lectures, tutorials, textbooks and the like. More general information is found on my personal page.

Contents


Teaching materials and introductory texts

Each of the below texts mainly aims at introducing readers to a new topic, without requiring (much) preliminary knowledge. The topic (and language) should be obvious from the title in each case. Slides are not included here but can be found below and (esp. for invited talks) in the publication list.


Tutorials and Summer School Lectures

Materials can be found by following the links. For further teaching materials and slide sets, see semantic-web-book.org.

University teaching

Below is an overview of my university teaching activities. For further teaching materials and slide sets, see semantic-web-book.org.
