A CISTER scientific council meeting was held on the 21st of February. The agenda contained two main topics:
• welcoming of the new CISTER PhD members Pedro Miguel Santos and José Proença. Pedro and José recently joined the CISTER team and will strengthen CISTER’s expertise in distributed systems, IoT, vehicular networking and formal methods;
• implementing CISTER’s strategy to integrate the large number of new PhD students who continuously join CISTER since last year. This is a critical point for CISTER as fourteen new PhD students have integrated CISTER’s ranks since last year, and new calls for applications will soon be released.
