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.
