Nine INESC-ID researchers are among the most cited top scientists in the world
Nine INESC-ID researchers are among the most cited top scientists at the top 2% of their respective areas.
Portugal is represented in this list compiled by Stanford University with 385 scientists affiliated to several national institutions.
The rankings are based upon a researcher’s citations for both a single year (2019) and cumulative across their careers. Titled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators,” the list uses algorithms that quantify and systematically rank individuals into consistent scientific fields.
The scores are provided both with and without self-citations to lessen the impact of researchers employing extreme self-citations or the use of citation farms (small clusters of researchers massively citing each other’s work).
Ranked within the careerlong citation impact list are these INESC-ID researchers:
- Arlindo Oliveira – Information and Decision Support Systems (IDSS)
- Gil Marques – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Leonel Sousa – High Performance Computing Architectures and Systems (HPCAS)
- J. Fernando Silva – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Francisco Santos – Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS)
- Joaquim Jorge – Graphics and Interaction (GI)
- Luís A. F. M. Ferreira – Sustainable Power Systems (SPS)
- Victor Fernão Pires – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Ana Paiva – Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS)

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.
