Professor Athman Bouguettaya


This project involves the design of service-oriented management infrastructure for managing the databases and applications of the multimodal transportation networks.

Web services act typically as the building blocks for Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). Those building blocks need to be designed in an efficient and effective manner to provide a competitive service.

During this process, it is important to investigate the design issues related to granularity, abstraction, generality, etc. Similarly, it is also important to evaluate the functional, non-functional and behavioral properties of web services to produce an optimum design.

Therefore, developing a rigorous foundation that would provide sound design is paramount. It will help to reduce the effort of integration, minimize the impact of change, deliver appropriate levels of granularity, abstraction and generality, etc.

In addition to RMITs PhD entry requirements, candidates should have background in a Computer Science or a related discipline. Apart from the PhD scholarship, a top-up scholarship may be considered for a strong candidate.
