Participation in research projects

SACIM: Situation awareness in critical incident management (2010–2011). Supported by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology through project PTDC/EIA/102875/2008. My contribution: 3 conference papers. The main objective of this project is to study collaborative situation awareness. We propose to model this concept and validate a measurement instrument to ultimately develop a functional prototype that increases situation awareness in critical situations.

A-CSCW: Attentive CSCW (2007–2010). Supported by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology through project PTDC/EIA/67589/2006. My contribution: 1 PhD dissertation, 2 journal articles, 1 book chapter, 4 conference papers, 2 technical reports, 1 software prototype. The objective of this project is to study how technology may influence group attention in the collaborative context. We propose prototyping specialised attentive devices and using these devices in laboratory experiments to understand the role of group attention in CSCW.

E-voting: A new architectural framework for handling risk in e-voting systems (2005–2006). Supported by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology through project POSI/EIA/57038/2004. My contribution: 3 conference papers, 3 technical reports. This project analyses the problems associated to general e-voting systems, relating them with the system architecture and components, and finding new ways to deploy systems with reduced risk levels.

ARIADNE: Público digital (1997–2000). Supported by Agência de Inovação through PRAXIS XXI, Medida 3.1b. My contribution: 1 MSc dissertation, 3 conference papers, 1 poster, 1 software prototype. The objective of this project is to develop an integrated information system to enable archiving, searching, personalised editing, remote printing, notification and payments in digital format, through the Internet.
