Hakima Mellah
Research Center in Scientific and Technical Information (CERIST)

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 and Phd degree 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 conferences as PC member or reviewer (WWS, NDT, ICADIWT, ICMWI, ICIA,WOSWI,WI-IAT,...). 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, social aspects.
