Brief Biography:

Dr. Ismael Navas-Delgado holds an MSc degree in Computer Science (2002), and a PhD degree in Computer Science (2009). Currently, he is Assistant Professor at the University of Malaga since 2009, and has been involved in a number of national and international research projects as participant researcher. His research activity is focused on the application of database technologies to the Semantic Web, including topics such as middleware development, semantic annotation, ontology location, ontology alignment and with a wide experience in the development of bioinformatics applications. He has participated in many conferences and most of his work has been published in international journals and conferences, with more than 50 published papers.

Currently I are reviewer in several international conferences (such as DEXA and WebS) and journals (such as Data & Knowledge Engineering).

What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

I think it is a good idea in a topic where changes are produced continuously and sometimes conferentes do not reach enough audience for high quality papers. In this special environment, having a vision of the most relevant advances is a key to be up to date and produce novel solutions to new problems.
