Bio

Maarten Marx (1964) is afgestudeerd in de politicologie (1990) en gepromoveerd in the wiskundige logica (1995), beide aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam. Hij is (co-)auteur van 3 boeken en meer dan 75 wetenschappelijke artikelen. Sinds 2002 doet hij onderzoek naar XML, in het bijzonder naar XPath dialecten. In 2004 won hij de ACM Principles of Database Systems best paper award voor zijn Codd- volledigheids resultaat voor "Conditional XPath". Zijn huidige interesse ligt in het integreren van grote hoeveelheden semi- gestructureerde "text-centric" data. Zijn werk over parlementaire stukken won de XML Holland Award in 2008 en de Dutch Data Prize (uitgegeven door DANS-KNAW) 2012. Maarten Marx (1964) obtained his master in political science (1990) and his PhD in mathematical logic (1995), both at the University of Amsterdam. He (co)-authored 3 books and more than 75 scientific articles. Since 2002 his main research topic is XML, in particular XPath dialects. In 2004 he won the ACM Principles of Database Systems best paper award for his Codd-completeness result for "Conditional XPath". His current research interest is integration of large amounts of semi-structured, text-centric, data. His work on the parliamentary proceedings was recognized with the XML Holland Award 2008 and the Dutch Data prize (awarded by DANS-KNAW) 2012.

Current research interests

Making large amounts of political data easily accessible, for keyword search and for aggregate queries. We do this by extracting implicit structure and make that explicit in XML. Here are three examples of data-mediation sites: one for the Dutch parliamentary proceedings , and one for the Dutch 2009 European Election manifestos. The last one is a search engine into the Sigmod Record collection of interviews with distinguished database researchers.
