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.

Latest Research

ummOur scientific repository holds the most recent work. COPELABS follows a pre-print open policy.

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).
