About

Willem Robert van Hage is a researcher in the fields of information integration on the web. His main research topics in the past years are geospatio-temporal semantics, ontology alignment, and ontology learning. Since 2006 he has been a co-organizer of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI), a collaborative benchmarking effort for the evaluation of ontology alignment techniques. He has led the development of the Simple Event Model (SEM), an ontology for the description of events. In the past years he has worked on the combination of Semantic Web reasoning (RDF(S), OWL) and geospatio-temporal reasoning, developing a spatiotemporal indexing package for the popular SWI-Prolog programming language, which has led to a best paper award at the EKAW 2010 conference.
