O Setor de Tecnologia de Informação e a Estratégia para a indústria de Microeletrônica no Brasil. O papel e status do Ceitec Design Center.
Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul –
Since march 2004 Brazil has defined a federally sponsored policy with respect to the semiconductor industry. This policy aims to support strongly new initiatives for start-ups in the IC and Systems design. Related to this stand, the Brazilian government is also supporting the construction and the starting-up of Ceitec, a Design Center, an 800 square meters cleanroom and the associated facilities, located close to the Universidade Federal campus at Porto Alegre.
This talk presents data on the hardware and software production in Brazil and the strategy followed in the Brazilian plan for Microelectronics. The electronics manufacturing in Brazil is more than US$40 billion, while the design and manufacturing of ICs is less than 0.05% of that. The measures taken in this National Microelectronics Plan range from academic support for grants and scholarships, support for a Brazil wide University research network called Nano-Micro-Tech (NAMITEC), academic EDA software licensing, support for original ASIC designs by companies, support for 05 initiatives of centers of Design, and the construction of the Ceitec facilities capable of 0.5-0.8um CMOS processing – an investment requiring funding of the order of US$50 million.

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.
