Computer Science and Technology Center (CCTC)

The Computer Science and Technology Center (CCTC) is since 2004 the University of Minho research unit in Informatics.

Its research activities over the last few years have covered a wide range of fundamental and applied research topics related to computer science and technology.

In 2012, CCTC has been the stage of major re-structuring movements that deeply changed the body of researchers and research lines / groups. These changes led to a re-organization of the unit that now includes a unique group.

The strategic vision of the group focuses in advanced computing technologies and applications. Indeed, the research relies on a set of core scientific areas that provide advanced computing technologies as a means to contribute to the resolution of complex problems in many areas of knowledge and to address important societal challenges.

There are four key scientific areas providing computing technologies:
