LASIGE - Large-Scale Informatics Systems Laboratory is a research unit of the Informatics Department (DI) of the University of Lisboa (UL), Faculty of Sciences (FCUL).

LASIGE has approximately 110 collaborators, amongst researchers with a doctoral degree, working toward a Ph.D., or Master students and other junior researchers. The current Director is Prof. Nuno F. Neves.


2nd Place at SemEval2015

André leal, MSc student of Informatics Engineering from DI/FCUL, achieved 2nd position at SemEval-2015, an international competition connected to the automatic processing and clinical text semantic analysis. The work was developed under the orientation of Prof. Francisco Couto (LaSIGE - FCUL) and Bruno Martins (INESC-ID - IST), and had the collaboration of Diogo Gonçalves, also MSc student from DI/FCUL.

An App for ULisboa canteens

The mobile application was developed by the Informatics Department of FCUL, by the SASULisboa Technology & Information Unit and by the Informatics Department of UL Central Services, in conjunction with PT Communications SAPO Labs.

Joint INESC-ID/LASIGE Seminar: Klaus Berberich, "Frequent Sequence Mining in MapReduce"

Dr. Klaus Berberich, Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, will present a talk under the INESC-ID/LASIGE joint seminar, with the title "Frequent Sequence Mining in MapReduce", where he will present two methods that he and his team developed recently to mine frequent sequences using MapReduce as a platform for distributed data processing. Date: 2014-Dec-04, Time: 15:30:00, Location: Room 020 at INESC-ID, Lisbon.

LASIGE (DI-FCUL) Seminar: Adrian Cheok, "Everysense Everywhere Human Communication"

Prof. Adrian Cheok, Professor of Pervasive Computing at City University London, will present a talk, with the title "Everysense Everywhere Human Communication", that outlines new facilities that are arising in the hyperconnected internet era within human media spaces. Date: 2014-Nov-10, Time: 13:00:00, Location: Room 1.3.14 at FCUL, Lisbon.

About LASIGE -- eXtreme Computing

LaSIGE develops activities in a number of relevant areas of computer science and engineering (CSE), including: human-computer interaction and multimedia; information management, net-centric, parallel and distributed computing; software engineering; and security and dependability.

The activities of LaSIGE represent an added value to the Portuguese and European S&TS (science and technology system) tissue, materialized by several factors:

  • Quality, quantity and impact of the outputs in research, technology transfer and advanced training.
  • Alignment with state-of-the-art international research themes and agendas (e.g. Horizon-2020), increasing impact and promoting prospective industrial exploitation.

LaSIGE’s scientific skills have been best evidenced in face of extremes:
extreme levels of threat; extremely low software defect requirements; extreme operating conditions; extreme uncertainty and dynamics; extremely large-scale data sets, flows and computations. These matters are addressed by all research groups without exception, representing a powerful differentiating factor of the lab:

“Extreme Computing - computer science and engineering pushed to the extremes of functional and non-functional properties of systems”.

LaSIGE follows a research-line centred strategy, whose objectives follow from the above, reconciling research freedom with a focus on extreme computing. Current research lines:


LASIGE research activities are funded by FCT (through the Strategic Projects Programme and national research projects) and by international projects (mainly, projects financed by the European Commision).
