Prof. Dr. Mihhail Matskin

Prof. Mihhail Matskin received his PhD degree in 1984 from the Institute of Cybernetics of the Estonian Academy of Sciences. Currently his is a Professor of Software Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden and an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway (where he worked as a Professor before moving to KTH in 2003). Prof. Matskin is known for his work in services composition, semantic Web services, agent technology and multi-agent systems. His earlier activity was carried in the area of program synthesis. He is a co-author of the NUT language and environment that was one of the first systems that supported declarative programming in a high-level language, automatic program synthesis and visual specification of classes. Later he contributed to application of partial deduction to program synthesis and to developing service composition methods using linear logic as well as to works on theory and practice of multi-agents systems.

Current research activity of Prof. Matskin is focused on developing service composition and analysis methods, service-oriented architecture, semantic user profiling, service annotation, profiling, multi-agent and multi-robot systems. The results of his research are published in a large number of scientific papers in international journals, books and conference proceedings. His works received awards at IEEE and IARIA conferences. He is also a recipient of Soviet State prize in Software Engineering (1987).
