Profile

Professor Dr. Fabio Ciravegna is Professor of Language and Knowledge Technologies and Head of OAK Group in the Department of Computer Science. His research field concerns Information and Knowledge Management over large scale in distributed organisations or the World Wide Web.

He is Director of the European Project WeSenseIt (14 partners, €6.5m budget) on creating citizen observatories of water. In 2006-2010 he was director of the European Integrated Project IST X-Media (15 partners, €13.6m budget) and in 2002-2005 he was director of the EU project Dot.Kom.

He is part of the editorial board of the International Journal on Web Semantics. In 2009 he was General Chair of the European Semantic Web Conference.

He holds a PhD from the University of East Anglia and a Doctorship from the University of Torino, Italy.

Research interests

Focus is on knowledge and information management over large scale. The research covers 3 main areas:

  • How to capture information over large scale (the Web, the Social Web, distributed organisational archives, mobile devices, drones, sensors, etc)
  • How to use the captured information (eg for knowledge management, business intelligence, customer analysis, management of large scale events via social media)
  • How to communicate the information (to final users, problem owners, etc)

Research areas covered are knowledge and information management, Web technologies, human computer interaction, search technologies and natural language processing.

Prof Ciravegna’s research income since 2006 tops £8.5 million, of which about 15% directly from industry (eg Rolls-Royce plc, Football Whispers, JustGiving, etc)
