Pascal Hitzler is a German American computer scientist specializing in Semantic Web and Artificial Intelligence.[1][3] He is endowed Lloyd T. Smith Creativity in Engineering Chair[4] and Director of the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science[5] at Kansas State University, and the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Semantic Web journal[6] and the IOS Press book series Studies on the Semantic Web.[7]


Hitzler received a Diplom in Mathematics from the University of Tübingen in Germany in 1998.[4] He has a PhD in Mathematics from the National University of Ireland, University College Cork, 2001.[8][2]


Hitzler received the title of 2018 Brage Golding Distinguished Professor of Research during his tenure at Wright State University,[9] where he was endowed NCR Distinguished Professor.[9][4] From 2004 to 2009 he was at the Institute for Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany.[4][10] Between 2001 and 2004 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the International Center for Computational Logic at TU Dresden.

Hitzler has published several books as author and editor,[11] including the textbook "Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies"[12] which was awarded an Outstanding Academic Title award in 2010 by the Choice Magazine.[13]

At the 2020 International Semantic Web Conference, he and his co-authors received the SWSA Ten-Year Award by the Semantic Web Science Association, for the publication Prateek Jain, Pascal Hitzler, Amit P. Sheth, Kunal Verma, Peter Z. Yeh, Ontology Alignment for Linked Open Data.[14]

Hitzler is also one of the authors of the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language Primer,[15] which is a W3C standard.
