The vision we outline for the future, is LaSIGE asserting itself, nationally and internationally, through a powerful differentiating factor:

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

To fulfil this vision, LaSIGE outlined the following general and specific strategic objectives:

  • Improve visibility as international player in selected R&D areas
  • Top lab, nationally and internationally, in *Extreme Computing*
  • Performing with priority in a set of H2020‐like focal points
  • Improved international impact and dissemination of research outputs
  • High prospective industrial exploitation
  • Promotion of interdisciplinary research
  • Prestigious advanced education and training institution

LaSIGE’s research lines and their objectives follow from the above, with the necessary research freedom but having in mind a greater focus on LaSIGE’s strongest points related to extreme computing:

  • Biomedical Informatics
  • Fault and Intrusion Tolerance in Open Distributed Systems
  • Human Computer Interaction and Multimedia
  • Methods and Techniques for Engineering Software Systems
  • Timeliness and Adaptation in Dependable Systems
