  • Barend Mons
  • Barend Mons is Professor of BioSemantics at the Human Genetics Department of Leiden University Medical Center and founder of the BioSemantics group. Next to his leading role in the research of the group, Barend plays a leading role in the international development of "data stewardship" for biomedical data. For instance, he was head-of-node of ELIXIR-NL at the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences (until 2015), is Integrator Life Sciences at the Netherlands eScience Center, and board member of the Leiden Centre of Data Science. In 2014, Barend initiated the FAIR data initiative and in 2015, he was appointed Chair of the European Commission's High Level Expert Group for the "European Open Science Cloud", from which he retired by the end of 2016. Presently, Barend is co-leading the GO FAIR initiative, an initiative to kick start developments towards the Internet of FAIR data and services, which will also contribute to the implementation of components of the European Open Science Cloud. The focus of the contribution of the BioSemantics group is on developing an interoperability backbone for biomedical applications in general and rare disease in particular.

Deborah L. McGuinness

  • Prof. Deborah L. McGuinness, Senior Chair of Tetherless World Constellation, Professor of Computer, Cognitive, and Web Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is a leading expert in knowledge representation and reasoning languages and systems and has worked in ontology creation and evolution environments for over 20 years. Most recently, Deborah is best known for her leadership role in semantic Web research, and for her work on explanation, trust, and applications of semantic Web technology, particularly for scientific applications. Deborah is co-editor of the Ontology Web Language which has emerged from Web ontology working group of the World Wide Web (W3C) semantic Web activity and has now achieved W3C Recommendation status. She helped start the Web ontology working group out of work as a co-author of the DARPA Agent Markup Language program's DAML language. Deborah's main research thrusts are in languages, tools, and environments for the semantic Web.
