    Everton Cavalcante, PhD student at UFRN, will attend The 37th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2015), to present the paper “On the Architecture-Driven Development of Software-Intensive Systems-of-Systems” in the Doctoral Symposium.

    This activity is part of the project “ArqIoT – Um Ambiente para Desenvolvimento Orientado por Arquitetura de Aplicações em Internet das Coisas”

  • Researcher of INES Context Group will present a paper at ITNG’2015, Las Vegas (USA)

    Publicado em February 12th, 2015Publications
    The paper entitled Towards a framework for gamification design on crowdsourcing systems: The G.A.M.E. Approach.was accepted on the 12th International Conference on Information Technology : New Generations (ITNG 2015). The event will be held in April 13-15, 2015, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

    This paper is a result of the work being done by the student from the Master’s degree Program on Computer Science at UFBA, Jailson Brito, advised by Prof. Vaninha Vieira and Dr. Adolfo Duran. This work is part of the projects “Models, Processes and Tools for the Development of Context-Sensitive Systems” and “An Intelligent, Ubiquitous and Context Sensitive Public Transportation System”.

    The paper presents G.A.M.E., a conceptual framework to guide the design of gamification in crowdsourcing- based systems. The framework provides a flexible step-by-step guideline that combines knowledge from software engineering, collaborative systems, game design and interaction design. The approach was tested on two applications related to intelligent public transportation: the Wikibus and the Ubibus-Cars.

  • ASSERT Lab & INES & UFPE researches at VEME Workshop

    Publicado em February 9th, 2015Projects

    In 9 – 14 August 2015 St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago, the ASSERT LAB group will participate of the 20th International Bioinformatics Workshop on Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology (VEME), more information here.

    Biomedical data processing is a relatively new and challenging research field. Some of these challenges are addressed for Software Engineering, mostly the ones that handle with big data processing, pattern recognition, alignment and mapping of genetic and molecular information.

    With the intention of assist researchers for training in Bioinformatics methods, the International Committee for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) will promote from august 9 to 15 of 2015 the international workshop on Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology (VEME), hosted by The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. The workshop is co-organized by the University of Leuven (Belgium) and the J. Craig Venter Institute (USA).

    One of 4-day course offered is  ‘Large Dataset Analysis’  that will cover the more complex analysis of full genomes, huge datasets of pathogens including Next Generation Sequencing data, and combined analyses of pathogen and host. On day 5, the workshop have some half-day courses including ‘Large Phylogenies’, ‘Visualization of Large Phylogenies with Metadata’, ‘Recombination and Networks’ and ‘Virus Analysis Tools’.

    Vinicius Cardoso Garcia pretends to attend the VEME 2015 with his Phd student Jackson Raniel Florencio da Silva in order to better understand the Software Engineering applications and practices in bioinformatics field and to start to work together with the Rega Institute research group (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) in order to establish new research trends and partnership in the context of the RegaDB project.
