News

Since July 2006 I am Vice-Director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Galway, Ireland and professor at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG).

Research Interests

Many of my research in these areas are incorporated in our P-Grid peer-to-peer system.

You may also be interested to try out our Global Sensor Networks (GSN) middleware for zero-programming deployment of sensor networks.

The project starts in January 2004.
Knowledge-Web - Realizing the semantic web
A European Network of Excellence in the Semantic-based knowledge systems program. Its goal is to support the transition of Semantic Web technology from academia to industry. Leading house is University of Innsbruck, Austria. We participate in the areas of managing meta-data and ontologies, ontology integration and semantic web languages. The project started January 2004.
Self-organized Distributed Applications in a Mobile Environment
This is a subproject of the Swiss Research Centre for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (NCCR MICS) . I participate with work on emergent semantics and self-organizing data access in mobile ad-hoc networks and decentralized, self-organizing methods for efficient data access. The project started in 2002 and the first phase lasts 4 years.
P-Grid
This is an internal research project on developing our P2P platform.
OPELIX - An open personalized electronic information commerce platform (project manager, finished)
A European IST projet in Framework 5. The goal was to provide a customizable platform to enable electronic commerce with non-tangible information products. I did this project while with TU Vienna. Our contribution was the architecture, Internet-scale delivery and dissemination, and payment.

"The usual academic self promotion" (© Stefan Decker): CiteSeer sees me at rank 7321 in their list of most cited computer scientists (so plenty of room for me to improve on this :-) and Google Scholar gives an idea which of my papers are highly cited. Another list of publications is maintained by DBLP.
