Jérôme Euzenat

I am senior research scientist (directeur de recherche) at INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, France where I lead the mOeX 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 Université Grenoble Alpes.


I am currently studying experimentally and theoretically how people and agents may maintain reasonable understanding over interaction through formal knowledge and how they can preserve knowledge diversity so doing (see the mOeX team pages). We study what we call cultural knowledge evolution through experimental simulation and theoretical modelling.

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. Here is a recent, general public, presentation on Language and semantics (30mn, in French). Previous works of mine were connected to the notion of contexts [Euzenat 1991c], viewpoints, ontology matching [Euzenat 2013c], revision [Euzenat 2015a] and granularity [Euzenat 2001g] which are all relevant of this problem (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 and mOeX teams that I have created.


After studying computer science at university of Paris 7 (Denis Diderot), I passed my doctorate (PhD) in informatics from the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble (France) in 1990 (about reasoning maintenance systems). I also 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 (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). Between, 2000 and 2016, I led the Exmo team which has largely contributed to the take-off of the semantic web and linked data. In 2017, I started the mOeX team with my colleagues.

I am proud to have been elected ECCAI (now EurAI) Fellow in 2014.

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.
