About me

Hello. My name is Carlos Tejo Alonso (aka Tejo). I'm a young computer scientist (MSE on Computing Science at the University of Oviedo) living in Asturias, a beautiful region in the north of Spain. I'm a Semantic Web researcher at R&D department of Fundación CTIC (the opinions expressed on this site are not necessarily those of my employer).

You can find more information about my projects and about presentations or documents. And if you need, you can contact with me.

From time to time i write in a blog about subjects of interest to me (Usually about travels).

Short bio

Carlos Tejo-Alonso holds a Master of Science in Engineering on Computing Science from the University of Oviedo. Since he joined Fundación CTIC in October 2007 he has worked as a research assistant of the Semantic Technologies Unit in the R&D Department, and has taken part in several national and European R&D projects and initiatives. He has experience in various areas of Computer Science such as semantic web, human-computer interaction or web accessibility. He has received awards for his academic performance.

Projects involved

ONTORULE
The objective of ONTORULE is to integrate all the required pieces of knowledge and technology, including some that will need be researched and developed within the project, to allow exactly that:the acquisition of ontologies and rules from the most appropriate sources, including natural languagedocuments; their separate management and maintenance; and their transparent operationalisation in IT applications. ONTORULE (ONTOlogies meet business RULEs) is a large-scale integrating project (IP) partially funded by the European Union's 7th Framework Programme under the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Call 3 (ICT-231875).
SERENOA
Serenoa is aimed at developing a novel, open platform for enabling the creation of context-sensitive service front-ends (SFEs). This project has received funding from the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement nº 258030 (FP7-ICT-2009-5. Internet of Services, Software and Virtualization – STREP).
DISASTER
The project target outcome is an integrative and modular ontology for establishing a common knowledge structure between all the first responders involved in an emergency, but being compliant with legacy international data formats exchanged in the European Union as long as being seamlessly integrated within current SOA-based Emergency Management Systems. This project has received funding from the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement nº 285069
FOODIE (FP7 Project)
FOODIE (Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe) project is to create a cloud based platform where spatial and non-spatial interoperable data related to agricultural sector will be available for agri-food stakeholder groups. It will offer an infrastructure for building an interactive and collaborative network; the integration of existing open datasets related to agriculture; data publication and data linking of external agriculture data sources, providing specific and high-value applications and services for the support of planning and decision-making processes.
SRD
Share Research Data is a platform for data-collection and scientific research which is based on the Linked Data philosophy for the organization and management, allowing to generate new information based on previous knowledge saved. This project is being funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through the program INNPACTO in 2012 call under agreement IPT-2012-0498-430000.
VULCANO
Promotion of free software development in an environment of quality and reliability by adapting the methodologies, processes, business models and latest technologies.
INFOTERNERA
INFOTERNERA project aims to develop an information system that provides support for the actors to manage all processes related to the production, distribution and sale of beef meat in Asturias region. This project is funded by the Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) and the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) through the Operational Programme for R&D by and for the benefit of Companies - Technology Fund, 2007 -2013 (Project No.: IDI-20110847).
CETICA
The CETICA "Eco-logic tech-city: industrialization based steel for a more sustainable urban environment" project aims to develop new and advanced materials and construction systems based on steel and other multi-material components for a new model of eco-efficient building energy. This project is funded by the CDTI CENIT 2007-2010 program (Ministry of Science and Innovation).
Biolingüística
Technical support in the project "Biolinguistics: genetic basis, development and evolution of language" (Ref. HUM 07 - 60427/FILO).

Software (Open Source)

Parrot
Parrot is A RIF and RDF Ontologies documentation Tool. It provides users (both business users and developers) with useful reference documentation about rulesets and ontologies expressed in standard languages, such as OWL and RIF. Developed under FP7 ONTORULE project.
SKOSIC
SKOSIĆ is a Open Source SKOS Viewer, used to view the vertical modules generated in FP7 DISASTER project.
DCAT viewer
DCAT viewer is a viewer of DCAT (Data Catalog Vocabulary), an RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web.
DISASTER tools
Set of tools developed in FP7 DISASTER project, including Disaster mediation component.
tapinos
Tapinos is a set of tools developed to visualize statistical data expressed in RDF Data Cube vocabulary. Included: tapinos-js, tapinos-rdf-ws, tapinos-maplab-ws and tapinos-grails-demo
tabels
TABELS (Tabular Cells) is a tool to bridge the gap between tabular formats and linked data.
carfo
Context Adaptation Reference Framework Ontology (CARFO)s generated in FP7 SERENOA project.
su4j
SPARQL Utilities for Java (su4j).
RIFLE
Suite of tools for RIF Core and PRD.
Linked Open Colors
Linked Open Colors, dataset created for the April Fools' Day of 2011 as an informal initiative for promoting Linked Data.
SPARQL Endpoint interface to Python
This is a wrapper around a SPARQL service. It helps in creating the query URI and, possibly, convert the result into a more manageable format.
WodiDoc
An innovative tool to create composite documents from heterogeneous sources.
REST-in-py
A Python library to easily create REST interfaces for web applications.
EZWeb Gadget map
A gadget of google maps for the platform EzWeb.
