DEI talks is a virtual space to promote both the acquaintance of DEI members with recent work of world relevant researchers and also to keep updated with the recent industry interests that might be relevant to DEI’s researchers. DEI talks are organised around three topics. Updated work by relevant researchers in the fields of interest of DEI staff, DEI staff acquaintance with DEI’s visitor researchers work and short terms series of three month talks on a specific topic defined for each period.”


Creative Colab


The Creative Colab is an initiative of the Doctoral Program in Digital Media, organized annually by the first-year students and aimed not only to the scientific community but also to the general public. The event is an invitation to exploitation and discussion of perspectives on digital media, crossing creativity, technology and communication.

A program is set up every year with a different and current topic and through hackathons and talks top guest speakers bring to the discussion pertinent contributions on the theme addressed.


Jornadas de Ciência

da Informação

This conference is jointly organised by students of the Bachelor in Information Science (LCI) and the Master in Information Science (MCI), programs that result from the partnership initiated in 2001 between the Faculty of Arts (FLUP) and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) which had in its origin the Course of Documentary Science (FLUP, 1985) and the Master in Information Management (FEUP, 1998).

Every year this meeting brings together elements of the academic community, from different areas of knowledge, opening doors to the business community, public entities and to Alumni that integrate, today, some of the most innovative organizations.











Talk a Bit


Talk a Bit is a non-profit conference organized by the Masters in Informatics and Computing Engineering students, within the Seminars unit course.

The conference had its first edition in 2013 with less than 150 participants and in its 8th edition in 2020, it had more than 500 registered participants. The students commit to provide an excellent program, offering an environment for discussion on current topics and the future of technology.


Multicultural Lunch @DEI


International and Erasmus students are invited to bring a gastronomic specialty of their country and around the table socialise and exchange experiences with teachers and secretariat, fostering a moment of social proximity, facilitating the integration of those who have chosen to spend a season at DEI/FEUP.
