Accessibility and Ageing
LASIGE presents a longstanding record of research contributions in the area of accessible computing, in
assessing, designing, and developing technologies for people with different abilities. The Accessibility
and Ageing (AA) research line gathers all the contributions that seek to evaluate or design interfaces for
people with disabilities, older adults, or people suffering from situational impairments.
The LASIGE research line Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) investigates the functional, human, trustworthiness
and timing aspects of cyber-physical systems. This research line focuses on system solutions for offline
verification and online monitoring of security- and safety-critical embedded real-time systems, mechanisms
for efficient and adaptive interactions among entities in specific scenarios, protocols for autonomous driving
scenarios, and visual analytics techniques and tools for exploring heterogeneous datasets from cyber-physical
and smart systems, making them more transparent to end-users.
Health and Biomedical Informatics
LASIGE presents a longstanding record of research contributions in the area of Health & Biomedical
Informatics (HBI), by providing innovative solutions for processing biological and medical data, and for
supporting the discovery of new biomedical insights. This research line aims to encompass all the
scientific work in LASIGE where informatics plays a fundamental role in creating new knowledge in life
and health sciences.
Reliable Software Systems
Reliable Software Systems (RSS) focuses on modelling techniques and formal analysis approaches to software system
structure and behaviour. It aims at enhancing the software engineering practice and particularly the quality of the software.
Its activity ranges from developing theoretical models, languages and techniques to the development of tools that can be
used in the real-world software development process, with a clear impact on the workflow of developers and the industry
in general. RSS centers its attention on the verification and validation of software, increasing the confidence of developers in their
code, especially in complex and error-prone scenarios, such as concurrent and distributed programs.
Resilient Distributed and Networked Systems
Resilient Distributed and Networked Systems (RDNS) investigates models, protocols and architectures that are
suitable for applications with strong dependability requirements, namely applications that needto remain operational
despite accidental faults or malicious attacks. The solutions being developed cover a diverse set of objectives, enforcing
the prevention, detection and tolerance of failures. The kind of environments that are being contemplated include cloud
deployments, highly dynamic and geographically distributed networks, mobile distributed computing, web systems and
applications, smart grids and other critical infrastructures.
The project CAMELOT (autonomiC plAtform for MachinE Learning using anOnymized daTa), included in the CMU program | Portugal, launched a promotional video. This project is being developed since 2020 in a collaborative commitment between renowned Portuguese companies (Feedzai), institutions (Universidade de Coimbra, Faculdade de Ciencias da Universidade de Lisboa/LASIGE, Instituto Superior Técnico), and Carnegie Mellon […]
Andreia Mordido, an integrated member at LASIGE, was an invited speaker at the second “Workshop on Verification of Session Types” (VEST’21) where she presented the talk “Beyond regular session types”. Session types enable to express interaction protocols in message-passing systems, but traditional session types only capture communication patterns characterized by regular languages. In this talk, […]
Today, July 14, 2021, is the World Freedom of Thought Day, a right established in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on December 10, 1948. “Every man has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes the freedom to change religion or belief and the freedom to manifest […]
