Patrick Lambrix is professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science of Linköping University. He received his PhD in Computer Science from Linköping University in 1996.

He is the head of the Division for Databases and Information Techniques (ADIT) where he also leads the Database and Web Information Systems Group. He is a member of SeRC, the Swedish e-Science Research Centre and affiliate of WASP. He is also member of the Semantic Web research group and the Sports Analytics research group at Linköping University.

His main expertise is in knowledge engineering and his current research interests relate to the areas of

  • Semantic Web (ontologies)
  • Databases
  • Bioinformatics
  • Sports analytics

Degree projects related to knowledge engineering and the Semantic Web as well as to sports analytics may be available.
Among others, we are currently offering degree projects related to:

NEWS: Patrick Lambrix, Catia Pesquita and Vitalis Wiens will organize VOILA 2021 - 6th International Workshop on Visualization and Interaction for Ontologies and Linked Data, on October 24 or 25, 2021, co-located with the 20th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2021).

NEWS: We presented the paper 'An ontology for the materials design domain' by Huanyu Li, Rickard Armiento and Patrick Lambrix at ISWC 2020. Link to paper. Link to ontology.

NEWS: Our EKAW18 paper on conducting and reporting on empirical user studies in Semantic Web contexts has been a major influence on the guidelines of ISWC 2020's reproducibility track.

NEWS: Patrick Lambrix will be invited speaker at Psi-k 2020, September 14-17, 2020. The Psi-k conference, which is held every 5 years, is the largest conference in electronic structures and brings together researchers that work on developing fundamental theory, algorithms, and programs in order to understand, predict, and design materials properties and functions.
UPDATE: The 6th Psi-k conference is delayed until August 22-25, 2022.

NEWS: LiU magasin published an article (in Swedish) on our sports analytics work based on an interview with Patrick Lambrix and Niklas Carlsson. Swedish and English versions were published on the LiU web.

NEWS: Our journal article 'User validation in ontology alignment: functional assessment and impact' by Huanyu Li, Zlatan Dragisic, Daniel Faria, Valentina Ivanova, Ernesto Jimenez-Ruiz, Patrick Lambrix and Catia Pesquita is now available open access. Link to paper.

NEWS: Our journal article 'A Method for Extending Ontologies with Application to the Materials Science Domain' by Huanyu Li, Rickard Armiento and Patrick Lambrix is now available open access. Link to paper.
