3 Introduction This guide was prepared to facilitate the task of graduate students and visitors wishing to obtain information about the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC) and its research activities. The DEEC has 130 professors, all of them with a Ph.D. degree, and deeply involved in research activities. The Department teaching and research activities are organized in the following areas: Computers Electronic Systems Energy Systems, Decision and Control Telecommunications Most of the research activities are carried out within research institutes, partially funded by the Portuguese Government. This research is periodically evaluated by panels of international experts and their report is available in the web. Most of the research carried out by the faculty of DEEC has been classified as Excellent or Very Good in these independent evaluations. This guide is organized in two parts. The first provides information (contacts and summary of the objectives) about the research institutes associated with the DEEC. The second provides a complete list of professors, detailing their contacts and research interests. We hope you may find it useful. Prof. Pedro Silva Girão Dean Prof. Jorge S.

Reconfigurable computing (RC) involves the use of reconfigurable hardware for computing purposes. Reconfigurable devices, such as field-programmable gate-arrays (FPGAs) can be (re)configured, even in the middle of a computation, to implement specific hardware designs. By directly adapting the hardware to the needs of a given algorithm, RC systems are able to outperform conventional processor solutions for a wide variety of applications. The research on reconfigurable architectures focuses on the design of specific computing systems for applications that require more processing power than can be provided by traditional microprocessors. 3 publications V.

23 João Luís Costa Campos Gonçalves Sobrinho position Associate Professor Ph.D IST, TU Lisbon research unit IT contacts mail: tel: (+351) url: Computer networks; networking; communication protocols; routing protocols; Internet; medium access control; wireless LANs My work focuses on communication network protocols, understood as the collection of distributed algorithms that secure communication between geographically dispersed entities. I am interested both in the design of communication protocols as well as in their mathematical properties. Especially, I research routing protocols and medium access protocols. The former protocols are those that make messages in a network travel from their origins to their intended destinations. Particularly relevant in my work are the Internet routing protocols, such as OSPF and BGP, which provide global Internet connectivity in a distributed environment composed of thousands of competing Internet Service Providers. The medium access protocols are those that make communication possible in a shared broadcast medium. Here, my main interest is on protocols for wireless LANs. From a broader viewpoint, I am keen on the general correctness and analysis of algorithms for communication networks. 3 publications J. L.

Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET)s: Wireless networks with the apability to self-organize on-the-fly without the need for a communications infrastructure. MANET nodes can usually take the roles of endpoints and relay nodes simultaneously. MANETs are mainly useful to allow communications to be established in environments where a communications infrastruture (e.g. cellular networks) is not available or reliable. Examples of MANET applications are battlefield communications, disaster relief operations, rescue operations, cooperative work between meeting participants, sensor networks, etc. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)s: a particular instantiation of ad-hoc networks. In WSNs sensor nodes self-organize to allow the communications of sensing data towards special gateway nodes, which in turn communicate directly with the monitoring platforms. 3 publications A.

26 Carlos Manuel Ribeiro Almeida position Assistant Professor Ph.D research unit IST/DEEC contacts mail: tel: ( ) (ext 2397) url: Real-time and embedded systems, distributed systems, fault-tolerance, group communication, QoS adaptability, sensor networks There is a proliferation of embedded systems with increasing requirements in what concerns real-time and dependability. Devices such as cellular phones, PDAs, control systems with ``smart'' sensors and actuators, are examples of those embedded systems. Despite the technological evolution, in terms of processing power and chip integration, many of these devices still show limitations regarding available resources. The need to obtain devices that are small in size, with low power consumption, and low cost, implies that resources such as processing power and memory capacity can not grow in an uncontrolled way. On the other hand, the complexity and the requirements associated with the applications are ever increasing. Sometimes, besides strict temporal and dependability requirements, it is necessary to conciliate them with functional requirements that imply the utilization of generic use components (COTS). 3 publications M.
