Open PhD position at KaHO St Lieven, Ghent (Belgium)


Research Group IT, Department of Engineering, KaHo Sint-Lieven, Ghent
(Belgium) has an open position for a PhD student for a 4 years project
funded by IWT Flanders entitled:

DiCoMas: Distributed Collaboration using Multi-Agent System
Architectures

The main objective of the proposed research is to provide a reusable
software architecture for supporting the development of automated
collaborative systems. One prototypical example in the domain of
logistics is supply chain management. Another example is collaborative
health care institutions. Whereas many initiatives (both in industry and
research) aim at enabling communicating business applications, this
project targets the development of distributed collaborative
applications. To achieve this goal, we acknowledge three related
research tracks: (1) collaboration modelling, (2) middleware, and (3)
issues of trust, security and privacy.
The open position is situated in the first track, with a strong emphasis
on agent collaboration in dynamic environments and computational
mechanism design.

Project partners are:
K.U.Leuven, Department of Computer Science, DistriNet, (AgentWise)
K.U.Leuven, Department of Computer Science, DistriNet, (Security)
KaHo Sint-Lieven, Departement Engineering, (Information Technology) 
V.U.Brussel, Department of Computer Science, (COMO)
K.U.Leuven Campus Kortrijk, Department of Informatics, (DDS)

Candidates have a master degree in Computer Science or Engineering
preferentially with expertise in the fields of Artificial Intelligence
and/or have experienced programming skills. 

Applicants should submit as soon as possible: (i) Curriculum vitae, (ii)
List of university exam results, (iii) List of references and their
email addresses. Submit your application as plain text file (or pdf) by
email to
