NDN-Opp: an NDN Opportunistic Framework

 

NDN-Opp: an NDN Opportunistic Framework
COPELABS is specifying and investigating how to extend NDN to be applicable in the context of opportunistic wireless environments. The NDN framework for Opportunistic Networks (NDN-Opp) is being developed aiming to support opportunistic data forwarding based on users’ interests and their dynamic social behavior.

NSense: A People-centric, non-intrusive Opportunistic Sensing Tool for Contextualizing Social Interaction

The scientific paper NSense (Rute C. Sofia, Saeik Firdose, Luis Amaral Lopes, Waldir Moreira and Paulo Mendes) has been accepted in IEEE Healthcom 2016 (September 14th-18th, Munich). NSense is a software tool developed by COPELABS that tracks and infers social interaction aspects in the form of computational utility functions that aim at describing two indicators of interaction: propinquity, and social interaction level.

COPELABS gets additional funding by FCT

 In July 2016, COPELABS has been awarded additional funding by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) in the context of its research unit Funding Support Programme 2016. This additional funding award amounts to 20 300 Euros for the period of 2016-2018, and refers to the Proxemics Data Lab project that has been established in June 2016 by COPELABS. In 2015, COPELABS had been awarded with a grade of "Good" and a core funding of 30 000 Euros funding by FCT in the category of small unit (less than 40 researchers holding a PhD) with high laboratorial intensity, based on its proposed strategic planning for 2015-2020.

Oi!: Communicating directly, without Internet access

COPELABS is developing, in the context of the H2020 UMOBILE project, a set of applications that does not require Internet access for users to exchange information. Such opportunistic transmission applications rely on social interaction between devices to better propagate (route) information.

Oi! is one of such tools. Under development with the purpose of allowing message exchange without Internet access, Oi! considers the SOCIO framework to better select nodes to propagate the messages to.

NSENSE: Measuring Social Interaction

The NSENSE beta version is out! NSENSE aims at better understanding the physical and social context of the users. In the beta version application provides some context data in non-intrusive way, and the data(not personal) are stored only on the device, not being sent to the Cloud.  This application is a product of the CitySense project which exploits its capabilities to stimulate social behaviour, encourage cooperation among users and provide trustable means for user interaction.

PhD Nemps: 2016/2017 applications open!

PhD programme New Media and Pervasive Systems - NEMPS - applications are open for 2016/2017!

 Society has been having a predominant role due to the fact that citizens use the Internet not only to participate in provided services, but also by providing new services. The impact of this active participation is the consequence of two fundamental principles of Informatics Sciences: i) a fast-paced evolution of Internet services and architectures; ii) a wider interaction and immersion of the Internet user, as integrating part of these services, and technologies.

It is within this context that the NEMPS doctoral programme has been developed. NEMPS has as main goal to train individuals within the context of Informatics Sciences, but with specific expertise that can assist in solving and deriving innovation adequate to the Internet paradigms that are being raised due to the empowerment of the Internet user. Such expertise is derived from two main informatics sciences sub-areas: New Media and Pervasive Systems.

Oi!: Opportunistic Data Transmission in Infocom2016

New COPELABS publication in Infocom 2016: Oi! - Opportunistic Data Transmission Based on Wi-Fi Direct, by L. Lopes, R. Sofia, P. Mendes, W. Moreira Jr. Oi! is a simple and opportunistic application that allows exchange of data even in the verge of no Internet access, by relying on opportunistic communication approaches. Developed in the context of the H2020 UMOBILE project, Oi! is open-source.

New COPELABS spin-off: Immersive Lives

IMMERSIVE LIVES is a spin-off project from COPELABS that was born from the consolidated experience of over of 10 years in designing, developing and validating immersive worlds. These worlds were devised to simulate critical situations where humans have difficulties in finding an easy get-out strategy.

At IMMERSIVE LIVES we believe that immersive worlds are the solution every time humans have to perform challenging conditions that are difficult to operate in real-life contexts.

The Systemic Lisbon Battery (SLB) is a virtual reality online platform  that consists of a small town populated with digital robots. This virtual town includes several buildings arranged in eight square blocks, a 2-room apartment, and a mini-market in its vicinity, in both of which participants are able to move freely around and to grab objects. The platform was developed using Unity 2.5.

Highlights

C-BRAINs

C-BRAIN MeetingsIn 2015/2016, the C-BRAIN (COPELABS BRAINstorming) meetings occur monthly, Tuesdays, 14h00-15h30, COPELABS, room U.0.10, ground floor of Building U, University Lusofona. C-BRAINs are motivated by the interdisciplinary nature of COPELABS, and are intended to assist in creating sinergies and giving rise to new ideas, in contexts where Informatics meets Psychology.

SITI - Informatics Systems and Technologies Group

SITI w400SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.

CTIP - Technology Intensive Psychology Group

CTIP w400This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
