Personal profile


Kuo-Ming Chao obtained his MSc and PhD degrees from Sunderland University, UK in 1993 and 1997 respectively. From 1997, he worked at Engineering Design Centre in Newcastle-upon-Tyne University as research associate for more than 3 years before he joined Coventry University as senior lecturer in 2000. Between 2007 and 2008, he joined British Telecom Research Lab as short term research fellow. His research interests include the areas of intelligent agents, service-oriented computing, cloud computing and big data etc. as well as their applications such as energy efficiency management and green manufacturing etc.

He has over 150 refereed publications in books, journals, conference proceedings. He is a co-founder and managing editor of Service-Oriented Computing and Applications: A Springer Journal to promote Service-Oriented Computing. He is a member of editorial broad for a number of international journals. In addition he is involved a number of EU-funded projects as coordinator or work pack leader. He serves a number of international conferences by taking different responsibilities such as general chair for 10th IEEE ICEBE, 2010 IEEE conference CEC, programme chair for 9th ICEBE, 2009 CEC and 2005 CSCWD, Track Chair for 2010-2012 AINA and others.

Mission Statement:

Developing large and complex software applications is a non-trivial task. Service-Oriented Architecture provides a new way of developing software or applications that allows services to be discovered, selected and composed dynamically or on the fly. However, the services do not only need to meet functional requirements, but also non-functional specifications for service-level agreement. The variables involved in non-functional specifications can be fuzzy, vague and complex, so the focus of the research is to model and measure them to facilitate service selection.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
