Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Big Data Service Management

Background: Large-scale service system is an emerging research area, concerning ultra-large scale systems in software and system engineering, and Big Data. In the domain of IoT, millions of diverse and heterogeneous digital devices and services are dynamically integrated for provisioning multiple real-time functions or user-customized functions. In large social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, billions of users are registered and every user has hundreds of friends or followers.
  In this project, the primary focus is to harness the service paradigm as a key mechanism to design an efficient Big Data service management framework. The candidates are expected to undertake a wide spectrum of research issues in the context of IoT and Big Data services such as service selection and recommendation from large-scale repositories and composition based on social relations in large-scale social networks.
Open to:

Applicants with an unconditional offer of admission for full-time PhD studies within the School of Information Technologies at the University of Sydney, and be willing to undertake research in the field of big data service management.

  Applicants must also have a strong background in one or more Programming languages (e.g. C++, Java, Python and others) and algorithms.
Value: $30,000 per annum (fixed rate)

Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Cloud Service Management

Background: Services present a higher level of abstraction providing a human concept to computing. In that respect, the key aspect of the service approach is its ability to elegantly provide real-world problems with a naturally congruous solution. It is the preferred delivery framework for emerging trends, such as cloud computing, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), and social computing.
  In this project, the primary focus is to efficiently design a cloud service management framework. We are considering a broad range of cloud services such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and social clouds (Facebook, YouTube, etc.). The candidates are expected to undertake a wide spectrum of research issues in the context of cloud service management such as service design, long-term composition and optimizing cloud economics.

Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Internet of Things Management

Background: The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging and promising area that proposes to turn every tangible entity (i.e., thing) into a node on the Internet. The ubiquity of mobile devices such as smartphones has elicited the emergence of the important domain of crowdsourced sensor data. This poses key challenges on storing, processing and managing continuous streams of IoT and crowdsourced sensed data.
  In this project, the primary focus is to harness the service paradigm as a key mechanism to manage IoT and sensor cloud services. It should provide novel smart services which benefit enterprises, industries, and our society. The candidates are expected to undertake a wide spectrum of research issues in the context of IoT and sensor cloud service management such as spatio-temporal composition, incentive models for crowdsourced services and IoT service mining for smart cities.
