Campinas Receives Researchers from Coimbra

Published: Tuesday, 29 March 2016


The University of Campinas (IC-UNICAMP) receives in these days four researchers from the University of Coimbra (UC) to start their secondments: Prof. Marilia Curado and Prof. Edmundo Monteiro, which are in their first secondments in the project, while returning are Prof. Marco Vieira and Nuno Antunes.


Marilia is an Assistant Professor at the UC, where she currently leads the Laboratory of Communications and Telematics (LCT). Her research focuses routing, energy-aware networking, mobility and wireless networks.

Edmundo is a Full Professor at the UC and is also a member of the LCT, where he researches topics related to computer networks and their security, critical infrastructures protection and energy sustainability.


Taking advantage of their presence, a series of presentations were organized in the days of March 21 and 22, and had an audience of professors, researchers and students of the IC-UNICAMP. Marilia presented two talks entitled “Mechanisms for Resilient Video Transmission” and “Group-Communication Mechanisms in Machine-to-Machine Environments”, where she introduced the group and some of the research activity that they have been developing. Edmundo presented a talk on “Mobile Cloud Networking and Critical Infrastructure Protection”. Marco presented a talk on “Practical Evaluation of Intrusion Detection Tools for SQL Injection”, and finally Nuno presented a talk on “Decision Trees for the Detection of Code Smells”.


The secondments also served to continue the ongoing work with the local researchers, including activity of co-advising students, and work on the deliverables of the projects.


During this period was also particularly important to develop activity on other projects that include the participation of the UC and UNICAMP.


The project EUBra-BIGSEA is a H2020 project that started in January and aims at the development of a framework for the support of big data scientific research through the cloud. The UC and UNICAMP are responsible for the security and privacy concerns of the project and had the opportunity to synchronize the status of the works of both teams and plan for future interactions.


The project SORTS is a FCT/CAPES project that started in February and focuses the orchestration of resilient and trustworthy fog services. In the case of this project, the teams used this secondment to organize the Kick Off Meeting of the project in March 23 (photo below).
