About this book

The Semantic web has given a great deal of impetus to the development of ontologies and multi-agent systems. Several books have appeared which discuss the development of ontologies or of multi-agent systems separately on their own. The growing interaction between agnets and ontologies has highlighted the need for integrated development of these. This book is unique in being the first to provide an integrated treatment of the modeling, design and implementation of such combined ontology/multi-agent systems. It provides clear exposition of this integrated modeling and design methodology. It further illustrates this with two detailed case studies in (a) the biomedical area and (b) the software engineering area. The book is, therefore, of interest to researchers, graduate students and practitioners in the semantic web and web science area.

About the authors

Dr Maja Hadzic received PhD from Curtin University of Technology in 2006. Her PhD thesis is entitled: "Ontology-based multi-agent systems for human disease studies". She is currently Research Fellow at the Digital Ecosystems and Business Intelligence Institute of the Curtin University of Technology. She has a multi-disciplinary background and her current research interests include ontologies, multi-agent systems, data mining, digital ecosystems and mental health.

Professor Elizabeth Chang is Professor of Information Systems and Software Engineering at the Curtin University of Technology. She is the Director of the Digital Ecosystems and Business Intelligence Institute. Professor Chang has an extensive background, knowledge and skills in academia, commerce and industry.

Dr Pornpit Wongthongtham received PhD from Curtin University of Technology in 2006 and has become an expert in the field of ontology-based multi-agent systems. Over the last 3 years she co-authored numerous papers on ontology-based multi-agent systems for multi-site software engineering. She is currently working as Research Fellow at the Digital Ecosystems and Business Intelligence Institute of the Curtin University of Technology.

Professor Tharam Dillon is an expert in the field of software engineering, data mining XML based systems, ontologies, trust, security and component-oriented access control. Professor Dillon has published five authored books and four co-edited books. He has also published over 600 scientific papers in refereed journals and conferences. Over the last fifteen years, he has been cited, one or more times, in over 1200 publications. This indicates the high impact of his research work.
