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.
