Previously, Steffen held positions as researcher, project leader and lecturer at the University of Freiburg, the University of Stuttgart/Fraunhofer Institute IAO, and the University of Karlsruhe and he is a co-founder of Ontoprise GmbH.


The special session on Semantic Computing Ontology Development addresses any kind of computational problems that require semantics analysis, semantic integration, semantic interfaces and technologies that create, manipulate or retrieve computational content based on meaning and intention, from video, audio, text, software, and any other media. Researchers are invited to present software tools, applications or theoretical work covering a variety of ontology engineering activities, including Annotation and Documentation, Human-Ontology Interaction, Knowledge Acquisition, Modularization and Customization, Ontology Dynamics, Ontology Evaluation, Ontology Matching, Reasoning and Inference, and other related topics.
