I’m Jean-Paul Calbimonte. I’m a senior researcher at the Institute of Information Systems (IIG) at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO). I had the pleasure to work previously at EPFL in the the Distributed Information Systems Lab (LSIR). I also enjoyed some years working in the Ontology Engineering Group at UPM (Madrid), where I finished my PhD. Our Lab (AISLab) is located in the beautiful city of Sierre, Switzerland , surrounded of mighty mountains.
My personal and professional stuff is all here


I work on ontology-based approaches for web data access and integration.
My main focus is on streaming data sources and sensor networks data on the Web,and Internet of Things.
I help coordinating the W3C RDF Stream Processing Group.
I also work on mappings-based integration, heterogeneous data sources and generation of Linked Data. If you care about the Semantic Sensor Web and have a nice idea to share, email me!
