European Center for Ubiquitous Technologies and Smart Cities

CISTER/INESC-TEC researchers Raghuraman Rangarajan and Eduardo Tovar attended the UBICITEC meeting held in Essen, Germany, last February 13, to discuss opportunities and possibilities of collaboration, especially with respect to Horizon 2020.

UBICITEC is the European Center for Ubiquitous Technologies and Smart Cities, founded on November 2012, as a continuation of the results obtained in the European Network of Excellence on cooperating Objects CONET ( FP7). The main goal of UBICITEC is to establish a World-Class Center of Excellence on Smart Cities and Ubiquitous Technologies while increasing Europe’s visibility in the areas of Ubiquitous Technologies, Internet of Things, Cooperating Objects and Cyber Physical Systems.

New highly skilled Researcher joins CISTER

CISTER/INESC-TEC has recently welcomed a new PhD member, Dorin Maxim, to its expanding international research team.

Dorin has received his Ph.D. degree in computer science in 2013 from the university of Lorraine, France after working in the renowned INRIA - Nancy Grand Est laboratory. He obtained a master degree in computer sciences (on the topic of artificial intelligence) in 2010 and a double bachelor’s degree in mathematics and theoretical computer sciences in 2008, both from the Lower Danube University in Galati, Romania.

His research interests lie in the area of Real-Time Systems with particular attention to Probabilistic Analysis of Real-Time Systems. For now he will be contributing to the SMARTS (Slack management for hierarchical real-time systems in a multicore scenario) research project and will be involved in the new Artemis EMC2 project. EMC2 will start in April with CISTER/INESC-TEC teaming up with EADS, Thales, Infineon Technologies, Ericsson, BMW, Volvo, Philips Healthcare and Siemens. The Artemis EMC2 project addresses embedded multi-core systems for mixed-criticality applications in dynamic real-time environments.


27th International Conference on Architecture of Computing Systems successfully held in Luebeck

CISTER/INESC-TEC researcher Eduardo Tovar served as Program co-chair of the 27th International Conference on Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS 2014). The conference tool place in Luebeck, Germany, on February 25 - 28.

The ARCS series of conferences is one of the most important and oldest scientific events for computer architecture research in Europe. It celebrated this year 40 years of tradition reporting top notch results in computer architecture , operating systems and computing systems. The focus of the 2014 conference was on embedded computer systems connecting computing with the physical world, a topic also known as Cyber-Physical Systems. This year’s highlights included a set of three high quality keynote talk, by Karl-Henrik Johansson (KTH, Sweden), Ravi Nair (IBM T. J. W Research Centre, USA) and Thomas Ludwig (German Climate Computing Centre, Germany).

CISTER to organize highly reputed Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks: EWSN 2015

CISTER/INESC-TEC will host the 12th edition of the highly reputed European Wireless Sensor Network conference (EWSN). Being one of the leading international conferences in this area, EWSN has played a prominent role in the dissemination of innovative research and provides a high quality discussion forum. EWSN 2015 will highlight the diversity of domains that are associated to wireless sensor networks today and welcome strong contributions to the area of wireless sensor networks, broadly defined. The conference will be an opportunity to gather researchers from all over the world, working in the forefront of research in the area, and also includes demos and poster sessions where real working systems or prototypes are shown. The hosting of this event is recognition of CISTER/INESC-TEC’s contribution to this field.

The conference will be held at ISEP on February 2015.
