The prize is awarded to the best students of the courses associated with the Department of Informatics of the Faculty of Sciences – University of Lisbon in a given year. Pedro Ruas received the prize for best student in the PhD Programme in Informatics in the year 2020/2021.
Diana Sousa was awarded a scholarship (of the 50 scholarships assigned) in a partnership between Huawei Portugal and .PT, under the Seeds For The Future 2.0 program that aims to empower students in the STEM areas. The student was selected from approximately 3000 applications based on academic and social merit!
The team Lasige Unicage achieved the 7th place (out of 232 participants and of 455 submissions) being awarded a cash prize of 5.000 USD, at the LitCoin international challenge, a competition part of the NASA Tournament Lab, hosted by NCATS (The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences) with contributions from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). These institutions, in collaboration with Bitgrit and CrowdPlat, have come together to bring a challenge with the goal of deploying data-driven technology solutions towards accelerating scientific research in medicine and ensure that data from biomedical publications can be maximally leveraged and reach a wide range of biomedical researchers.
Semana da Bioengenharia at Instituto Superior Técnico
April 29, 2022
Have you ever wondered about the application of informatics in bioengineering? If so, this workshop in bioinformatics is perfect for you!
Dr. Francisco M. Couto has a PhD in informatics and is specialized in Bioinformatics. He is an associate professor with habilitation at the Faculty of Sciences from Universidade de Lisboa, a researcher at LASIGE (Laboratório de Sistemas de Grande Escala) and an author of 2 books, one of which is particularly relevant to Health and Life specialists or students that want to easily learn how to process data and text. He was also the winner of the Young Engineer Innovation Prize 2004 from the Portuguese Engineers Guild and the 2018 ULisboa/CGD Scientific Prize.
Dr. Francisco will be talking about his main research contributions, namely in proposing and developing: various text mining solutions that explore the semantics encoded in ontologies; semantic similarity measures and tools using biomedical ontologies; and ontology and linked data matching systems.
Unicage is willing to announce that it will take part of the LitCoin NLP Challenge in partnership with LASIGE, a research and development unit from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL), in the fields of Computer Science and Engineering.
