INESC-ID Recent Achievements in H2020
Researchers from INESC-ID have recently been successful through the participation in four European competitive projects: Olissipo leaded by Susana Vinga, BIG co-leaded by Rodrigo Rodrigues, TAILOR and HumainE-AI-Net with the participation of Ana Paiva.
Olissipo is a twinning action, meaning that stands for institutional networking to strengthen a specific field of research. In Olissipo “Fostering Computational Biology Research and Innovation in Lisbon” the goal is to enhance the INESC-ID competences in the field of Computational Biology and developing it into an international pole of excellence. Susana Vinga is the principal researcher involved in this special widening action.
BIG is an ERA Chair “Blockchain technologies and design Innovation for social Good” that aims the full potential of interdisciplinary research of Instituto Superior Técnico, while strengthening innovation and knowledge transfer activities with local and global industrial partners, contributing to the smart specialization strategy of the Lisbon region in stimulating the upcoming ecosystem of digital startups and their economic impact. Rodrigo Rodrigues and Nuno Nunes are the leading researchers of BIG. This project is a collaboration with the Interactive Technologies Institute ( ITI/ LARSyS).
TAILOR “Network of research centres for foundations of trustworthy AI” will create a network of research excellence centres on the foundations of trustworthy AI to meet the grand challenges in health, mobility and resource management. And finally, HumanE-AI-Net “Research on AI system that enhance human intelligence” aims to develop the scientific foundations and technological breakthroughs needed to build Artificial Intelligence systems that enhance human intelligence rather that replacing it. Ana Paiva participates in both TAILOR and HumanE-AI-Net.
These new projects will enhance contributions to both the scientific community through OLISSIPO and BIG, but also the social concerns around Artificial Intelligence, which is the focus of both research projects TAILOR and HumanE-AI-Net, through the participation of its researchers.
Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning Seminar Series (Online)
The Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning seminar series has started on October 2020 and runs until March 2021.
The seminars aim to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in machine learning (ML) with ML and AI experts interested in mathematics and physics, with the goal of introducing innovative Mathematics and Physics-inspired techniques in Machine Learning and, reciprocally, applying Machine Learning to problems in Mathematics and Physics.
Attendance is free but registration is required.

International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
The 27th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing (Euro-Par 2021) will take from August 30 to September 3 2021 in Lisbon.
Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects.
The 2021 edition of Euro-Par will be organized as a collaboration between INESC-ID and Instituto Superior Técnico (IST).
