Portuguese phonological system used in Beira Interior
Instituto de Telecomunicações, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Coim –
This study proposes a model for a phonological description of the speech patterns attested in the Portuguese language variety spoken in Fundão – Beira Interior. The research is based in analytic work of the functionalist theory, the perception of phonetic features and data arriving from statistical analyses. A phoneme database was built for such purposes comprising 142.020 examples, the realizations of which are described and analysed according to the syllabic context. The phonemic database was constructed in order to establish the pertinent features set in the referred variety. This set regulates the dynamic nature of linguistic subsystems, taking into account both the variety of realizations and the optimization of uses. The description of these uses is based in statistical analyses which are presented in relative and absolute values. It is suggested that these phonological phenomena maps may have their correlation in the Verb and Personal Pronoun syntactic-semantic categories.

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.
