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)

IRIS Project presents results at the Supreme Court of Justice
The Supreme Court of Justice (STJ) will host in its headquarters an open public session to present results of the project IRIS – Information, Rationalization, Integration and Summarization: Application of Artificial Intelligence Techniques at the Supreme Court of Justice.
The event will feature interventions from the President of the Supreme Court of Justice, Judge Counselor Henrique Araújo, the Vice-President of the High Council for the Judiciary, Judge Counselor Luís Azevedo Mendes, and members of the research team responsible for developing the project at Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Iscte) and Instituto Superior Técnico (Técnico) I INESC ID.
Within the scope of this Project, two IT functionalities were developed: a database of jurisprudential rulings, which will promote transparency and improve access to decisions, and a ruling anonymization tool that will be made available to all courts, through a protocol with the Superior Council of the Judiciary.
Among the team members the session will count on the presence of Ricardo Ribeiro (Iscte), Flávio Martins (Técnico I INESC ID), Daniel Gonçalves (Técnico I INESC ID), and José Borbinha, researcher at INESC ID and Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering from Técnico.
The IRIS Project is an initiative of the Supreme Court of Justice that has been developed 2020 and funded by COMPETE 2020 as part of the Portugal 2020, and by the European Social Fund.

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.
