Brief description

COPELABS is a research unit of Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, originally established as a new unit in Portugal, having been awarded the grade of “Good” in the last (2013) FCT evaluation, in the quality of small multidisciplinary unit. In 2016/2017 COPELABS has evolved to become a unit solely focused on computer science, under the department of Informatics Engineering and Information Systems of the School of Communication, Architecture, Arts, and Information Technologies (ECATI). COPELABS currently integrates a team comprising 41 elements: 28 integrated researchers (18 holding a PhD) and 13 collaborator researchers. All elements correspond to teaching and researchers’ staff holding agreements with COFAC c.r.l., in two different poles - Lisbon (ULHT), Algarve (ISMAT). Moreover, all collaborator researchers pursue teaching activities in full alignment with the 1st, 2nd (MEISI) and 3rd (NEMPS) educational cycles of informatics of ULHT, and are relevant from the perspective of adequate intertwining between teaching and research. In its 2018-2022 vision COPELABS embraces 4 areas of computer science: networking and telecommunications (OSI Layers 1,2 and 3); information systems; computational systems; data mining and statistics. Vision and Mission COPELABS pursues the vision of improving the day-to-day living, including well-being and functioning of citizens, based on an interdisciplinary approach that interconnects the following computer science areas: networking and telecommunications; information systems; computational systems; data mining and statistics. Our mission is to design, to develop, and to validate pervasive, low-cost, and user-friendly scientific technological solutions that are relevant to assist in changing the way that communication and human interaction is both developed and applied.
