Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias

on 27-06-2016

... Following the great success of previous editions, IT will be promoting again this year between June 27th and July 1st, two traineeships designed to capture the interest of secondary students from the 10th to the 12th grade for telecommunications. The activities will be developed in Lisbon and in Covilhã, under the program Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias.

In Lisbon, IT is associated with Instituto Superior Técnico to host INTELE (Introduction to Telecommunications) for the 5th time . During a complete week (30 hours), the students will go through the delights of soldering for the first time electronic components and building their own FM and AM receivers.

In Covilhã, IT together with the Faculdade de Engenharia – Universidade da Beira Interior, will be hosting a similar course named Initiation to Electronics and Telecommunications. It also spans a week (25 hours) and students will be immersed in the context of research and development of IT and participating in experiences, allowing them to contact with some of the innovative applications from electronics and communication networks.

In both courses, the students will visit laboratories of different areas of telecommunications and will watch compelling experimental sessions. The initiative in Covihã also includes sports and cultural activities. More Information..

First International Workshop on Information Security, Assurance and Reliability in the Cloud (WISARC)

on 07-12-2015

... Cloud computing is nowadays a key enabling technology in the IT world. Adopting or moving to the cloud raises security concerns, spanning from confidentiality issues due to data outsourcing, to regulation and jurisdiction problems, which have been the focus of researchers and security solutions manufacturers in the past few years. Cloud computing effectively increased the attack landscape and brought security issues of its own. On the other hand, it also provided new means to deal with threats, and it constitutes an environment where fundamentally different information security approaches need to be devised, involving often a multidisciplinary effort in disciplines such as cryptography, networking, software development, system architecture, among others. This workshop aims to attract innovative research works and foster discussions addressing technical, policy and legal issues of information security, assurance and reliability in cloud computing environments, elaborating on distinguished and emerging topics that are of interest to both the academia and the industry.
