MORe, HermiT and ELK, three OWL reasoning systems developed in the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) group, have been awarded at the OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2013).
Doctoral Student Despoina Magka's paper entitled 'Ontology-Based Classification of Molecules: a Logic Programming Approach' has received the best paper prize at the 2012 Semantic Web Applications and Tools for Life Sciences workshop [more information].
Boris Motik was recently successful in gaining an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship. The 5 year project, MaSI3: A Massively Scalable Intelligent Information Infrastructure, focuses on Ontology-based Data Management Systems (ODMSs). These are a new kind of data management system specifically designed to deal with complex data, by using natural language queries often across multiple relevant sources [more information].
Yavor Nenov's PhD thesis "Computability of Euclidean Spatial Logics" has been awarded the Best Thesis Prize of the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester [more information].
Ian Horrocks has been elected to join Academia Europæa, an eminent organization for European scholars. Academia Europæa was founded in 1988 and has over 2000 members, including around 40 Nobel Laureates [more information].
