Arlindo Oliveira writes about “Vencer o Adamastor” in Público
Arlindo Oliveira — Distinguished Professor at Técnico, INESC-D researcher and Coordinator of the institute’s Life and Health Technology Thematic Line, as well as President of INESC — has written on the “Vencer o Adamastor” Award for the newspaper Público.
In his piece, published on 05 September, Professor Oliveira discusses how INESC and Público decided to create this award and recognize innovative work by young scientists, developed in Portugal, in the fields of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), including electrical engineering and computation.
Vencer o Adamastor will be awarded to the candidate who demonstrates not only a clear ability to produce high quality scientific work, a vision for future scientific and technological developments in their respective area of research, as well as the potential to make a significant contribution to the future scientific development of the country, as a researcher, a scientist, a teacher and a future leader.
Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
