INESC-ID researchers publish a paper in Nature
Fernando P. Santos and Francisco C. Santos from INESC-D/GAIPS, together with Jorge Pacheco from the University of Minho, developed a new computational model that shows how simple moral principles need to be to maximize cooperation, even in complex environments. The results of this study were published in Nature on March 8, 2018.
The model developed constitutes a new computational framework (based on Boolean algebra and game theory) to investigate the complexity of moral judgements, and the results extend the existent knowledge about the evolution of cooperation in human societies: surprisingly, the authors find that, out of the 65536 norms analyzed, and among the few cooperative norms that promote cooperation, some translate into extremely simple moral judgements, that even overlook the past reputations of individuals.
The work may provide important clues on policy-making and the design of reputation systems – pervasive in nowadays web platforms and systems supporting sharing economies – in which is fundamental to understand the norms that are able to provide maximal levels of cooperation, while maintaining simplicity for the sake of enunciation, understanding, communication, internalization and effective implementation.

IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2020
IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2020 will take place between the 24th and 28th of October at Alfândega Porto Congress Centre, in Porto.
ICST 2020 aims to supply a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners all over the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of Software Testing, Verification and Validation.
Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from 23rd to 27th November 2020.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
