Prof Dr Carole Goble

Carole Goble is Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the University of Manchester. Her research interests are centred on the accessibility of information, primarily through the use of ontologies for the representation and classification of metadata. She works in many application areas, and in particular Life Sciences. Her work on the application of ontologies to biology and bioinformatics has been especially influential. She currently has a leading role in two major international initiatives: the Semantic Web and the Grid. She has combined these into the Semantic Grid, co-chairing the Semantic Grid Research Group in the Global Grid Forum standards organisation and directing a major UK BioGrid research pilot, myGrid. She chaired the first Semantic Web track of the World Wide Web Conference in 2002. She serves on many boards and programme committees including the international Semantic Web Science Association and the EU/NSF joint ad hoc committee on Semantic Web Services. She is an Editor-in-Chief of the new Elsevier Journal of Web Semantics and is a founder of a start up company, Network Inference, specialising in technologies for the Semantic Web.
