Coming soon, February 8, B032 hosts the ProDEI Symposium, formerly known as DSIE, annual meeting of the community of the PhD Program in Computer Engineering at FEUP, organized by its students.
This edition will demonstrate throughout the day the potential and opportunities of a PhD as a career path, through the testimonies of former ProDEI students with successful careers in industry: João Pedro Dias from BUILT CoLAB, João Reis from DEUS.ai and Tiago Boldt from Kevel. We will learn the different visions of those working simultaneously in industry and academia and how the challenging path of a PhD culminates in better and more rewarding opportunities.
Mid-morning, the interventions of Eugénio Oliveira, Emeritus Professor of the DEI, and Diana Santos, from the Innovation Office of FEUP, will present funding opportunities for those doing a PhD and the details of the application process, and will be available to clarify any questions.
After lunch, Luís Paulo Reis, LIACC Director, will present the talk “There are more tides than sailors: A reflection on the importance of doing top-quality scientific research!” This talk will focus on the recent developments in the areas of CS, AI, ML, IR and PNL and the importance of developing excellent science and advanced research in these areas, in the context of a successful and impactful PhD to achieve a top position in a top international technology company.
This will be followed by presentations from current ProDEI students that in 10 minutes each will give us a presentation of their latest research work in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Information Systems, (…) , being moderated by Professors Carlos Soares and António Augusto Sousa.
The session will end with a social coffee break among the participants.
Registrations are free and can be submitted here until February 7th.
