Ulrich ReimerProf. Dr. Ulrich Reimer received his PhD in Computer and Information Science at the University of Konstanz with a thesis on formal ontologies for natural language understanding. In 1992 he obtained his venia legendi at the University of Konstanz. From 1991 to 2002 Ulrich Reimer was head of the IT R&D group of Swiss Life in Zurich. During that time his group was responsible for various research and application projects in the areas of Semantic Web, Knowledge management, Data Mining and E-Tutoring, some of them having been funded by the EU. His main areas of expertise are currently the utilization of semantic technologies in knowledge management und e-health applications as well as domain-specific languages.

Application of Semantic Web technologies to various application areas such as knowledge management, e-health, e-government, and e-participation, for example to support personalised information access for patients, to enable clustering and categorisation of contributions to discussion forums, and extracting the key terminology from a text collection.
Domain-Specific Modelling Languages (DSLs):
Domain-specific modelling languages (DSLs) are focused on supporting the creation of models within a certain application domain. They typically comprise predefined domain-specific concepts as well as specialised language constructs that make it easier to create a model in the associated domain. In our current research we are applying DSLs and meta-modelling in the application domain of e-health, e.g. to help developing and configuring toolboxes of IT-based components for various medical interventions.
