INESC-ID researchers are among the best scientists in the world in the field of Computer Science
5 INESC-ID researchers are among the world’s top computer scientists, according to the 7th edition of Top Scientists Ranking for Computer Science & Electronics, released by Guide2Research. Once again, the highest number of Portuguese scientists is affiliated with Instituto Superior Técnico.
Among the 24 Portuguese computer scientists affiliated with national institutions are 5 INESC-ID reseachers: Ana Paiva, Joaquim Jorge, Luís Rodrigues, Francisco C. Santos and Leonel Sousa. In the list we found another 6 Portuguese scientists affiliated with Instituto Superior Técnico: José Bioucas Dias (IT), Mário Figueiredo (IT), António Pascoal (ISR-Lisboa), José Santos- Victor (ISR-Lisboa), Fernando Pereira (IT), José Rui Figueira (CEG-IST),
The list also includes four Técnico alumni: professors Manuela Veloso (Carnegie Mellon University- CMU), José MFMoura (CMU), Pedro Domingos (University of Washington) and João Marques-Silva (Institut Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse).
The first position of this year’s edition is held by professor Anil K. Jain (Michigan State University). Professors Yoshua Bengio (Université de Montréal) and Herbet Simon (CMU), hold the second and third position respectively.
Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s influential contributions based on their h-index from Google Scholar. The h-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be examined is set to 40 provided that most of their publications are in the area of computer science and indexed in DBLP.
Guide2Research is one of the leading portals for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2015.
The list aims to highlight the major contributions on Computer Science and Electronics and to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world.

Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango
Dates: November 18-19, 2021
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.
