Since March 2005, I am doing research at the AIFB institute at Karlsruhe University. If time permits, I am also working on my PhD thesis. Information about my research and teaching, contact details, and further relevant data can be found below.



My research is focussed on the practical use of Semantic Web technologies, ranging from foundational studies in knowledge representation and reasoning to actual implementations of deployable systems (especially the one that runs this site)


Further activities

  • Lead developer of Semantic MediaWiki
  • Member of the new W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) working group
  • Former member of W3C Rule Interchange Format (RIF) working group
  • Maintainer of, the Semantic Web community portal (together with Denny Vrandecic)

Short CV

Many occassions require a brief personal description. Here is a typical example of what I might use:

Markus Krötzsch is a researcher at the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (Institute AIFB) of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) where he is currently working on his PhD thesis. He received his Master of Science in Computational Logic at Technische Universität Dresden. His research interests involve knowledge representation on the Semantic Web, the logical foundations thereof, and the efficient processing of such knowledge. He also is the lead developer of Semantic MediaWiki, maintainer of the community portal, and a member of the Rule Interchange Format and the OWL working groups of W3C.
