Knowledge Representation and Data Management Research Group

The group is focusing on the following research areas:

  • data integration
  • data management
  • knowledge representation and reasoning
  • logic
  • ontology-based data access
  • query languages and query optimisation
  • semantic web technologies

The group collaborates with many other research groups in the U.K. and abroad and with industry, undertaking projects of fundamental and applied nature. In particular, we are involved in joint projects with

Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
University of Montpellier, France
University of Bremen, Germany
Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands
University of Oslo, Norway
Steklov Institute of Mathematics, Moscow, Russia
