Jérôme Euzenat

I am senior research scientist (directeur de recherche) at INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, France where I lead the Exmo team associated with the Laboratoire d'informatique de Grenoble. INRIA is the French national institute for research in computer science and control. I teach knowledge representation at the Joseph Fourier and INP University of Grenoble.


My long term research interests are related to concurrent representations of the same situation and the relationships among them. It is thus closely related to semantics, understood as the interpretation of representations with regard to their meaning.

I am currently developing research about the exchange of formal knowledge mediated by computers. This covers formally annotated documents, knowledge servers, content-based cooperative work and transformation and alignment of representations (see the Exmo team pages).
More specifically we developed, over the past few years, extensive investigations about ontology matching and alignments encompassing the semantics of alignments [Zimmermann 2006b] and its use [Euzenat 2007a, Euzenat 2008e], the software support [David 2011a], matchers [Euzenat 2004c, Locoro 2014a], and evaluation of matchers [Euzenat 2011b, Euzenat 2013a]. With Pavel Shvaiko, I wrote a book about Ontology matching.
I am now specifically interested in the experimental investigation of how people and agents may maintain reasonable understanding over interaction through formal knowledge.

Previous works of mine were connected to the notion of contexts [Euzenat 1991c], viewpoints and granularity [Euzenat 1995e] which are all relevant of the notion of abstraction or approximation (see my HDR dissertation; in french).
I contributed to, and published in, various domains including ontology matching, reasoning maintenance systems, object-based knowledge representation, symbolic temporal granularity and collaborative knowledge base construction.

My secondary interests are for almost all computer science but numeric computation (or non discrete computation).

More about my research activities can be found in the pages of the Exmo team.


After studying computer science at university of Paris 7 (Denis Diderot), I passed my doctorate in informatics from the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble (France) in 1990 (about reasoning maintenance systems). I hold the habilitation à diriger des recherches diplom from the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble (1999).
I have worked as an engineer for Cognitech (later bougth by Framentek, a Framatome company, now likely Areva, 1988-1989), Bull-Cediag (artificial intelligence division, 1989-1991) and Ilog (now absorbed in IBM, 1992). I have also worked as a consultant for end-users (currently on content diffusion on the web).
After one year lecturing at the ENSIMAG engineering school I joined INRIA Rhône-Alpes (1992) where I used to work in the Sherpa project. My work has then first focussed on object-based knowledge representation and semantics (1992-1995) and on collaborative building of consensual knowledge bases (1995-1999). Since the beginning of year 2000, I lead the Exmo team.

By the way, do you want to know how many fingers my feet enjoy?

My favorite DBLP entry.

Most of my publications are available on the web. I do not distribute slides of my talks, because they are only support for discourse and are not designed to be read. Moreover, there are compelling reasons for reading papers instead of slides.

And yes, I am a Comic sans criminal, maybe because I take comics seriously.
