Leonel Sousa nominated Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing
President of INESC Lisboa and a researcher in the INESC-ID High Performance Computing Architectures and Systems (HPCAS) research area — as well as a Full Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico — Professor Sousa is joining TETC as an Associate Editor.
As an Associate Editor, Professor Sousa will play a key role in TETC’s peer-review process, aiding the Editor-in-Chief with his unique set of expertise. A world-renowned authority in high performance and parallel computing, micro-architectures for general purpose and specialized processors, as well as multimedia systems, Professor Sousa is frequently featured in Stanford’s list of the World’s top 2% most-cited researchers.
Coordinated by Editor-in-Chief Paolo Montuschi (from Politecnico di Torino, Italy), the TETC Editorial Board includes more than forty experts and academics from all over the world who evaluate high-impact papers on emerging aspects of computer science, computing technology and computing applications: from IT for Green and synthetic and organic computing structures and systems, to advanced analytics, social/occupational computing, location-based/client computer systems or healthcare IT. A Q1 journal, TETC has been publishing some of the most groundbreaking work in computer science since 2013.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. The IEEE Computer Society, the portfolio of which TETC is part, engages “computer engineers, scientists, academia, and industry professionals from all areas of computing, [setting] the standard for the education and engagement that fuels continued global technological advancement.”

ER 2023 in Lisbon between November 6-9
This year’s edition of the International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2023) will be held between November 6 and 9 in Lisbon, at the Congress Center of the Instituto Superior Técnico (Alameda Campus)
ER 2023 is the main international forum for discussing the state of the art, emerging issues, and future challenges in research and practice on conceptual modeling.
Topics of interest span the entire spectrum of conceptual modeling, including research and practice in areas such as theories of concepts and ontologies, techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations, and methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models.
The event is being jointly organized by INESC-ID, Instituto Superior Técnico and University of Twente.
- Daniel Jackson, “Software Design, Concepts and AI”
- Maurizio Lenzerini, “Conceptual Modeling and Knowledge Representation: a journey from Data Modeling to Knowledge Graphs”
- Walid S. Saba, “Reverse Engineering of Language at Scale: Towards Symbolic and Explainable Large Language Models”
- Catia Pesquita, “True or False? The impact of negative knowledge in biomedical artificial intelligence”

OLISSIPO Workshop: “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango”
The 3rd Edition of the workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” will take place online on November 14-15, 2023.
The topic of the workshop is metabolism in general. As in the previous cases, a special focus will be placed on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects of metabolism, 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.
More details will soon be provided but initial information may be already found here.
- Barbara Bakker (Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Groningen, The Netherlands)
- Igor Cestari (Institute of Parasitology, McGill University, Montréal, Canada)
- Vassily Hatzimanikatis (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland)
- Steffen Klamt (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany)
- Ina Koch (Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany)
- Laura-Isobel McCall (San Diego State University, US)
Besides the talks given by the above Keynote speakers, there will be two sessions, one per day, of 30 minutes each, dedicated to a discussion of some specific open questions. More details on these will be provided very soon.The workshop will take place in the afternoons, from 2pm to 5:30pm CET time.
