Mike Lowndes is Interactive Media Manager at the Natural History Museum, London, UK, where he is responsible for the operational management and technical development of the Web site and Intranet, and acts as technical advisory on e-applications to the Museum. Previously, he narrowly escaped from a career as a neuroanatomist by learning Web skills while a Departmental Lecturer at Oxford University. Before that he spent seven years studying learning and memory: this however, did not lead to any improvements. On-going interests are in content management, the Semantic Web, interoperablity and exposing the deep Web, Web analytics, and 3D reconstruction and visualization.

Mike will present An Introduction to the Semantic Web for Museums. [Mini-Workshop]
