Welcome to the Data and Knowledge Engineering (DKE) Research Group in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, University of Queensland.
DKE is working in the area of large-scale databases and information systems. The technology is available today to send bit strings from anywhere to anywhere, and for programs running in one place to communicate with programs running in another. People are building systems that cross organisational boundaries in such areas as supply chain management and collaborative bioinformatics. These applications involve a wide range of data types, some of which are extremely complex. Our group, with its origins in the database world, is a leading research group in the organisation of the content and behaviour of these large-scale information systems, to provide information infrastructure for data-driven applications.
Members of the group have current funding close to 8 million which includes research funding from ARC and industry as well as large initiatives (infrastructure, ARC centre, ARC special initiatives etc.) including the lead for the The group has an immensely successful track record of publishing in the top ranked conferences and journals such as SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, various ACM and IEEE transactions with over 200 publications in last 5 years including over 30 A* ranked publications.The group also contributes significantly to the international research community which includes chairing, PC membership and reviewing for some of the most prominent conferences and journals in the area.
