Austria (TU Wien), where he is a member of the Information Systems
Institute. His research interests are database theory (in particular,
query languages), Web information processing, constraint satisfaction
problems, nonmonotonic reasoning,
finite model theory, and computational complexity.
On the more applied side, he supervises a number of industry projects
dealing with expert systems and with multimedia information
systems. From 1989 to 1996 he directed the industry-funded Christian
Doppler Laboratory for Expert Systems. He is a co-founder of Lixto Corporation.
Gottlob got his Engineer and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science
