The Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) is one of the largest and most influential academic research centers in Semantic Web and some of the Web 3.0 topics in the US. These new emerging areas combine a number of traditional CS fields (Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Knowledge Representation & Reasoning, Databases, Data Mining, Information Retrieval and Extraction, Distributed Computing, Mobile and Sensor Web, High Performance Computing, Bioinformatics).
Students seeking world-class research and guidance are welcome to apply for our PhD program. We have 15 faculty and over 45 funded researchers (mostly PhD students) and funding from major federal agencies as well as Microsoft Research, HP Labs, IBM Research and Google.
Students are exceptionally successful (see below - interns at top companies, employment in top industry R&D labs, academic institutions and startups, alumni have started startups, etc.).

A quick intro
Our Center; note in particular:
If you are interested in joining us, please contact any of our faculty members. Students with an MS/ME and those who know what they like (and is in our area of expertise) and want in life (those who are ambitious) are especially welcome. At least some of the positions are targeted for students interested in Semantic Web and Biomedicine (so a background in bioinformatics or biology is preferred).
Admissions are granted all year around. Strong CS background and research inclination is required. All PhD students in the Center have financial assistantships (some MS students are also partially supported).
Information on how to apply here.
The department offers a pre-screening to check whether your credentials are strong enough for enrolling.
If you have done CS courses beyond Bachelor's degree, most of the credits can be transferred, reducing the remaining course work.
