ICT PORTUGAL WORKSHOP: New Projects in Networks, Software, Energy and Security [Launching Session of the 2nd Call for Research Projects]
Date: March 1, 2011 (10:45 to 16:45) PROGRAM
Place: Centro Científico e Cultural de Macau (, Lisbon, Portugal

The Carnegie Mellon Portugal program is organizing a public session to present the research projects selected for competitive funding by FCT under the second Call for proposals. The goal of this event is to get together all the research teams and the Carnegie Mellon Portugal community, creating the opportunity to promote the ongoing work, to find out more about other projects, and to set the stage for new collaborations.

The research projects funded under this second call converge on the strategic areas of the Program, including Software Engineering for Large Scale Systems, Cyber-physical Systems for Environmental Intelligence, New Generation Networks and Resilient Operations in a Network Environment, and other areas related to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
