Research Projects
  1. Research on content persistence in virtual world construction. (2018-2020), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project is to research on how to achieve content persistence during constructing a virtual world by proposing a content level persistence maintenance model. In this project, some resource persistence theories will be explored to guide the persistence maintenance.
  2. Semantically integrating information resources of disconnected virtual worlds to build an open virtual marketplace. (2015-2018), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project is to research on semantically integrating information resources of disconnected virtual worlds, dying websites, and information individuals into a peer-to-peer (P2P) computing network, called P2PNet on which an open virtual marketplace is further built to enable various business activities.
  3. Cross-context e-business activity reasoning between unknown business partners (2012-2014), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project is to research on the cross-context issues of activity reasoning between the unknown business partners in electronic business systems and among electronic marketplaces. It requires the reasoning to be semantically sound.
  4. Integrating Virtual Worlds for Fair Virtual Money Exchange (2011-2014), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project is to integrate the existing technically non-interoperable virtual worlds (such as Facebook, HI5, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, Yahoo! and iGoogle). Thus, the non-interoperable virtual worlds could be integrated for enabling semantic business communications.
  5. Collaborative Construction of Integrated Electronic Marketplaces (EMpNet-1) (2009-2011), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project aims to provide a theoretical foundation of how to build an e-marketplace based on the underlying ConexNet. It tries to answer what functionalities an e-marketplace should support and how these functions can be provided.
  6 Semantic Integration of Heterogeneous E-Commerce Data (2006-2008), funded by the Research Committee of University of Macau.
This project aims to provide a theoretical foundation of how heterogeneous e-commerce data can be semantically integrated using collaboration concept and how heterogeneous vocabularies, documents and processes can co-exist in a same framework, thus having a coherent architecture.
  7. Collaborative Concept Exchange Network (ConexNet) - [ko'neks].
This project aims to integrate the previous projects of CONEX (Collaborative Concept Exchange), CODEX (Collaborative Document Exchange), COPEX (Collaborative Process Exchange) together.
It focuses on how heterogeneous concepts including vocabularies, documents, processes and services can be semantically interoperable with each other in a generalized concept networking platform. It aims to provide a semantic communication foundation for its above electronic marketplace and virtual marketplace. It is relevant to existing studies of semantic net, standardization, ontology, semiotics, artificial intelligence, collaboration theory, etc. The first step of ConexNet will focus on the development of a new type of semantic net, which can provide the ability of semantic query of semantically consistent English and Chinese words for business vocabulary localization. The second step will focus on the design of various e-marketplace functionalities based on this new type of semantic net.
  8 Internet Phenomena and History Analysis Related-to E-commerce (iPHARE)
This project aims to investigate on the phenomena and historical events happened around our daily e-commerce life. Through these analysis, we can understand the past, present and future of e-commerce application design principles and trends, thus better guiding our better design and implementation of e-commerce applications. Particularly, representative cases will be investigated and analyzed. It is relevant to history study and phenomenon analysis.

[Case study] Boeing.com; Covisint.com; Alibaba; BossLink; TradeCard.com; Bolero.net; AliPay.com; PayPal.com; SecondLife.com; QQ.com; FaceBook.com; WorldOfWarcraft.com; ZTGame.com
  9. Foundations of electronic Market Place (FoeMP) - [foum p]
This project aims to investigate on what should be our critical theories behind our designing e-marketplaces, considering a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary theories like management, marketing, finance, accounting, economics, international trade, sociology, ethics, laws, etc. It is relevant to the study of various technology development theories.
  10 Common money (Coney) - ['koni]
This project aims to investigate whether it is possible to design a common electronic money mechanism, which not only permits the co-existing of various types of electronic monies differently designed in existing e-marketplaces but also allows them to work together to support the formation of an integrated e-marketplace. it is relevant to the studies of e-payment systems, monetary systems, exchange rate systems, economics and international trade.
  11. Virtual Marketplace (VMp)
Virtual communities and their virtual worlds are a fascinating research area. This project aims to understand what virtual world is and how virtual inhabitants construct its societies. Particularly, this project focuses on the study of virtual marketplace that is built on the virtual world regimes set by its creators and the participated virtual inhabitants.

Research Group

     Our research group mainly aims to provide the next-generation marketplace platforms that can enable both real and virtual people to do business. This includes the studies of what will be the theoretical foundations of next-generation marketplaces, what they should support, and how the newly discovered marketplace functions could be supported.
