Organizing Committee

The Organizing Committee is as follows (in alphabetic order):

Paulo C. G. Costa
is an assistant professor with the C4I Center at George Mason University. He is a researcher in the field of Bayesian reasoning with background in multi-sensor data fusion, decision support and knowledge engineering. He developed PR-OWL, a probabilistic extension to the OWL Web Language based on the First Order Bayesian Logic MEBN.

Francis Fung is a senior engineer at Information Extraction and Transport, Inc. He performs research and development on systems for modeling and inference with relational probabilistic models, and on constructing probabilistic extensions to ontologies, as well as on ontology alignment and data translation.

Kathryn B. Laskey
is an associate professor of Systems Systems Engineering and Operations Research at George Mason University. She has done extensive research in methods for Bayesian knowledge modeling and dynamic knowledge-based model construction. She has developed a probabilistic modeling language encompassing first-order logic and mechanisms for dynamic model construction.

Kenneth J. Laskey is lead engineer and technical lead for the Information Semantics group at the MITRE Corporation. He is a member of the W3C Advisory Board and has worked extensively on issues relating to metadata and semantic interoperability

Michael Pool is a senior ontologist at Convera Technologies developing tools and methods for incorporating semantics into search technology. He has been a project manager on projects for developing systems for merging diverse data sources and probabilistic knowledge elicitation and learning. He has published on the compatibility of human and machine cognition, hybrid knowledge representations and formalizations, problems in Bayesian scientific theory.
