This Thursday, on the 26th of April, several LASIGE members are taking part on the organization of Girls in ICT, an event to promote ICT-releated careers to young women. This year's edition has an extra goal: to show woman that have a degree in other areas that they can too learn computer Science and take advantage of the high employment rates in this field.
The Department of Informatics and LASIGE have invited Tom Bartindale, a Human Computer Interaction researcher to give a talk on collaborative media production and the rise of objects. Tom will share with us his experiences of event manager and technician and how it impacted his research in new media production.
The talk will take place on the 14th of March, at 14h on room C.6.3.38.
Several of LASIGE members have recently been appointed as the main organizers of prestigious conferences in their respective fields:
This week Data Science Seminar at Ciências will be presented by LASIGE researcher Sara Madeira. The seminar will cover biclustering techniques for identifying objects and their patterns in large datasets, ranging from genomics to social data. The seminar will take place on the 21st of February at 14h on room C6.3.38.
LASIGE's very own Cátia Pesquita will be giving the next Data Science Seminar on the 7th of February , giving an overview of the current state of the Semantic Web in Data Mining and Retrieval, as well as presenting her latest contributions on the field. The talk will on February, 7 at 14h in room C.6.3.38.
LASIGE invites Philip Wadler to present next Thursday's cialis 10mg "Informática @ Ciências" seminar on "Propositions as Sessions". Besides taking on his lambda-calculus super-hero alter-ego during his very entertaining talks, Philip Wadler is one of most influential researchers on the topic of programming language theory. Recently, he became involved with IOHK, a startup that develops smart-contract technology for blockchains.
The next Talk @ DI will be presented by Edwin Brady, Lecturer at the University of St Andrews (UK) and Idris' creator, in the follow up of the invitation addressed by Vasco Vasconcelos.
The lecture, with the same title of Brady's book "Type-Driven Development with Idris", will present how to improve the performance and accuracy of programs by taking advantage of a state-of-the-art type system, and will take place at January, 24th, 16:00h, at 6.2.44 room of FCUL's C6 building.
A team of LASIGE, constituted by Nuno Neves, Fernando Ramos, Max Alaluna and Eric Vial, demonstrated the creation of a virtual network connecting 10 000 Docker containers over a multi-cloud setting spanning three providers (Amazon, Google, and LASIGE as a private cloud). The event was held during the SUPERCLOUD project meeting at the Orange Gardens Innovation Center in Châtillon, south of Paris.
The Information Systems Analysis and Design discipline invited ex-LASIGE researcher and FCUL PhD graduate, João Craveiro, to present a lecture about his profesional experience as a product manager.
LASIGE research was presented at FISMED 2017, the National Meeting of Medical Physics, through an invitation addressed to Francisco Couto to present a talk about his work in data exploitation, sharing and privacy.
