DI FCT UNL - NOVA LINCS DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES

The distinguished lecture series of the Computer Science Department (DI) and NOVA Laboratory for Computer Science (NOVA LINCS) at FCT NOVA brings to the Department some of the most influential researchers and practitioners in the field of computer science. This distinguished lecture series aims at giving students and researchers an opportunity to know more about some of the most groundbreaking work in computer science and the people who led this work, and will hopefully become a source of inspiration for the future career of the students in the department and NOVA LINCS. The series hosts one talk every year, so that it can focus on outstanding computer scientists and engineers who are leaders in their fields of knowledge. The inaugural lecture in this series was given in October 2012 by Turing award winner Prof. Barbara Liskov from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
