11th National Symposium of Informatics (INForum 2019), in Guimarães

On the 5th and 6th of September 2019, CISTER Researchers Luís Pinto and Miguel Gutiérrez Gaitán presented an oral communication and a poster at the 11th Symposium of Informatics (INForum 2019) held at the Campus Azurém of the University of Minho in Guimarães.

The article, also co-authored by CISTER members Pedro M. Santos and Luís Almeida, had the purpose of showing part of the research being done under the context of project AQUAMON, where CISTER is a partner.

In addition, the analysis presented in this work represents a relevant step on the support of real-time communications for over-water multi-hop networks affected by tides, which is one of the research challenges taken by Miguel in his Ph.D. studies.

Periodic Seminar on Home Appliances Energy Consumption

Yoan Caille and Rochan Ramful, two undergrad students from ESIEE Paris, visited CISTER from May to July. Their work has been developed within the context of the FLEXIGY project, where they had developed algorithms for the scheduling of home appliances energy consumption on a local smart grid. These algorithms try to maximize the use of local production from Photovoltaic Panels or any other renewable sources.
Their internship was supported by the ERASMUS initiative.

KhronoSim Final Evaluation meeting in Coimbra

On July 24, CISTER Researcher Cláudio Maia attended the final evaluation meeting for the KhronoSim project.
In this meeting two evaluators assessed the project in terms of achieved objectives and results. After careful evaluation and discussion, the project was deemed a success as all the objectives for the project were achieved, resulting in the development of two demonstrators for the KhronoSim test platform: an automotive instrument cluster and a satellite.
In the project, among other tasks, the CISTER team was responsible for studying the state of the art of emulation for multicore systems and integrating the KhronoSim test platform with the selected emulator. The emulator selected for the project was QEMU, one of the most versatile emulators currently available in the market, on top of which CISTER developed the KhronoSim QEMU Module that allows one to instance, manage and control, via the KhronoSim platform, several QEMU instances.

P.Porto received, on June 27th, the event entitled H2020: Infoday Digital Transformation, promoted by the National Innovation Agency (ANI), together with the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (P.Porto), TICE.PT and ISCTE-IUL.
The session was attended by Lars Pedersen from DG CONNECT, European Commission, who gave a presentation on the latest H2020 calls that will support digital transformation.
CISTER Research Centre premises were the venue for the event "Eyes on Horizon Europe: How to look at opportunities in crossover areas such as Space and ICT" in which several researchers had the opportunity to discuss possible application topics to be completed by the end of the H2020 program in order to promote national participation in the European research program, particularly in the area of ICT (Information and Communications Technology)."

Coordination 2019 conference and SC meeting in Copenhagen

CISTER was involved in the Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (Coordination 2019), the top venue in the community that investigates abstractions that cleanly separate behaviour from communication, therefore increasing modularity, simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development. Coordination is one of the three conferences of DisCoTec - one of the major events sponsored by IFIP, on distributed computing techniques.
Its 21st edition took place in Copenhagen, 19-21 June 2019, where the CISTER researcher José Proença participated in the Steering Committee meeting to discuss the future of the conference, and presented his work on coordination on a real-time operating system.

REASSURE progress meeting at U.Minho

On the 11th of June, CISTER Researchers David Pereira and Giann Nandi have participated in a progress meeting of REASSURE, that took place in the premises of the Department of Informatics of University of Minho.
The meeting, which counted also with the participation of REASSURE’s team members José Bacelar Almeida and Jorge Sousa Pinto from HASLab/ INESC TEC, had the purpose of analyzing the results obtained by both teams in this first year of REASSURE, and to plan the next steps for the second year of activities of the project, notably in what concerns the design of Domain Specific Languages and Cyber-Security Support in the design of runtime monitoring architectures.

Particular focus on the work developed by Giann, under his PhD studies, on the formal verification of WSN protocols using the ProVerif Tool, which is the core result described in the paper entitled “Security in Wireless Sensor Networks: A formal verification of protocols” that has been recently accepted in this year’s edition of INDIN 2019 – 17th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics.
