Computer Science and
Technology Center (CCTC)
The Computer Science and
Technology Center (CCTC) is since 2004 the University of Minho research unit in
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:
- Artificial Intelligence;
- High Performance Computing;
- Language Processing and
- Computer Graphics.
