Important Message from the Organizing Team, 25 October 2022:


Late last week, we received the difficult news that our planned venue—the Pharmacy Museum—can no longer host our event. Due to the diligent and steadfast work of the organizing team in Lisbon, we have secured a new venue that will ensure our conference can go on as planned and at the high caliber we all expect and appreciate. We are incredibly grateful to the NOVA School of Science and Technology, which is located just outside the city centre in Almada, Lisbon South Bay, for kindly welcoming us and hosting our Interim Meeting.

We sincerely apologize for this last-minute change and for any inconvenience it may cause. Travel from central Lisbon to the NOVA School of Science and Technology is ca. 30 minutes by public transportation. Information about our new venue and the commute from central Lisbon is outlined below. You should not need to change your housing accommodations, since the commute is easy; however, should you wish to stay closer to the venue (and have the option to change), we have provided a hotel option in Almada as well.

NOVA School of Science and Technology, Lisbon South Bay

A Brief History

The Universidade Nova de Lisboa (UNL) was established the Minister of Education, Professor Veiga Simão. The first Dean of the UNL, Professor Fraústo da Silva, presided the AET, which began to design the organisational structure of the institution for a maximum of eight thousand students, to be installed in 1985 in the area of Quinta da Torre in Monte de Caparica. In September 1974 it was completed the study of the five scientific areas to develop: natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, arts, applied science and technology, medical sciences and para-medical.

Throughout the evolution of the FCT-NOVA until nowadays, some of the branches of the initial degrees individualised in their own courses, such as Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering. Traditional degrees were created in Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering, which was to be changed to Electrical and Computer Engineering. The scientific and pedagogical innovation continued in some areas, as exemplifying the degree in Biomedical Engineering and Conservation-Restoration, both interacting with other UNL colleges. And the number of masters degrees increased, some degrees were converted to the first courses of postgraduate specialisation, as well as there were created other new profiles, such as Computer or Cell and Molecular Biology.

Thus, different areas of scientific and technological knowledge have been developed, and these have given valuable contributions to national modernisation and boosted a creditable international recognition in the current process of globalisation.
