Posted on: April 14, 2008

Please spread our PhD subject to students likely to be interested in this research area.

************ GENERAL INFORMATION *****************

* Title: Information integration: towards a declarative language “à la SQL” for
query rewriting

* Subtitle: Application to transparent querying of heterogeneous biological data

* Study Area: relational databases, knowledge representation and reasoning, information systems

* Theme: information integration (data and applications)

* Application: integration of biological and medical data, semantic web

* Abstract: The proposed subject concerns the design and study of a language allowing to express queries rewritings in a declarative way (ie for example in the form of a formula). A generic engine will be further implemented to allow the automatic generation of an algorithm associated with a given rewriting from its description. Next, this language will be used to propose new rewritings for ontologies based queries aiming at flexible information integration, in areas such as interoperability of biological data and the semantic web.
