Hakima Mellah
information systems and Multimedia systems, Research Center in Scientific and Technical Information

Brief Bio
Mrs Hakima Mellah is a researcher at Research Center in Scientific and Technical Information(CERIST)- Information System and Multimedia System Department. She obtained her engineer degree in Computing science from the University of Science and Technology Houari Bomediene of Algiers, a master degree in 2004 and Phd degree in 2014 from high school of computing (ESI) of Algiers. She is leading a group of researchers and cooperation projects. She is involved in some workshops and international journals and conferences as reviewer or PC member (WWS, NDT, ICADIWT, ICMWI, ICIA,WOSWI,WI-IAT,WI, Webist, .....). Her researches concern interacting distributed and agile information systems based on Multi-Agents Systems, taking inspiration from natural phenomena for adaptation and co-evolution, Services Oriented Architectures. Actually she is working on adapting multi agents systems within a cloud environment.


The special session on New Trends in Web Intelligence and Services (WIS 2016) aims to be a premier venue to gather computer science researchers and practitioners who are contrib-uting to and interested in linking Web intelligence and Services (WIS). This special session offers a meeting opportunity for academics and industry researchers belonging to the communities of Services and Web Intelligence to discuss new joint areas. It aims at identifying the key challenges faced by the Web intelligence and Services (WIS) community, discussing the solutions and underlining the opportunities emerging from the interdisciplinary interactions.

Relevant topics include the following (but are not limited to):
- Requirement management
- Methodology for WIS
- Modeling WIS, Ontology, MDA mixed to WIS
- Model Matching for WIS
- Knowledge management and WIS
- BPM and WIS, Monitoring, Risks, Change management
- Context aware systems, user centric systems
- Social WIS
- Intelligent Integration Systems, WIS in Information Systems
- Multi Agent System and WIS
- Big data and WIS
- Cloud, infrastructure
- Business domains including WIS as: education, health, environment, bank, government, security, etc.
- Applications, research projects, industrial feed back
