CORTIVIS: Visual Neuroprosthesis for the Blind featured in “110 Histórias, 110 Objetos” podcast
ELONICA, an interactive demonstrator for the CORTIVIS project, has been featured in the Instituto Superior Técnico podcast “110 Histórias, 110 Objetos”.
CORTIVIS — Cortical Visual Neuroprosthesis for the Blind — is a European venture that ran between 2001 and 2004, involving INESC-ID researchers Leonel Sousa and Pedro Tomás, and was a groundbreaking artificial vision project that involved direct implantation of electrodes in the visual cortex to aid visually-challenged individuals.

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.
The program and more details are available here.
