CISTER Celebrates 20 Years

31, May, 2017

It seems like it was yesterday!

CISTER is celebrating 20 years of activity!

It has been two extraordinary decades during which CISTER engaged with 52 (40 international) research projects, with an involvement of more than 300 CISTER researchers of 60 different nationalities. These projects accounted for more than 11 Million Euros of competitive funding, and collaboration with more than 400 international academic and industrial partners. We also hosted 25 International Conferences and Workshops, and around 50 international project meetings, totaling more than 2000 participants coming from prestigious companies and academic institutions worldwide.

These have been 20 years providing prestige to the stake-holding institutions: in the foreground clearly the School of Engineering (ISEP) of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (IPP) but also the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) and INESC-TEC. We express our gratitude for the support and enthusiasm.

Started as the IPP Hurray! Research Group in 1997, and becoming the CISTER Research Center later in 2003, it has grown to become one of the leading international research units in the area of critical computing systems and cyber-physical systems. The research focus includes many critical applications tackling various societal challenges, including aeronautics, automotive, smart-cities, Industry 4.0 and Cyber-Physical Productions Systems, ICT for Health, and many other domains.

You are all invited to join us this September to celebrate with us!

Be prepared for 2018: the Porto ecosystem will be the centre of the world for cyber-physical systems!
