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 120 collaborators, amongst researchers with a doctoral degree, working toward a Ph.D., or Master students and other junior researchers. The current Director is Prof. Paulo Veríssimo.


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.

XLDB team with top result at OAEI 2014

The AML system developed by XLDB obtained first place in all of the 6 tasks it has proposed for competition (out of a total of 9 tasks) at the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI 2014), presented at OM 2014 - International Workshop on Ontology Matching collocated with ISWC 2014 - International Semantic Web Conference, that took place at Riva del Garda, Italy, from October 19th to 23rd, 2014.

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 Multiannual Funding Programme and national research projects) and by international projects (mainly, projects financed by the European Commision).
