General Information

Welcome to Postgraduate Program in Computer Science (PPGI) at Ufes

  • From a technical point of view, an information system can be defined as a set of interrelated components that collect, process, store and distribute information. From an organizational point of view, an information system is a solution based on information technology aimed at supporting organizations both in their daily activities and in their decision-making.

    The development of information systems involves several aspects ranging from the understanding of the domain to be considered by the system until its use by the organizations. In this sense, the line of research Information Systems includes the investigation of topics related to the development of various types of information systems, taking into account the particularities of the different types of organizations to which the systems are intended.

    To this end, research is developed within the following sub-areas:

    Software Engineering: addresses topics related to technologies, methodologies and tools for the development and maintenance of software. It includes research that mainly addresses: software processes, software quality, software measurement, statistical process control, knowledge management, project management and software development environments.

    Conceptual Modeling and Ontologies: Investigates the development and application of domain ontologies, foundational ontologies and ontology-based techniques in various contexts of conceptual modeling, such as: information modeling, organizational modeling, corporate architectures, semantic interoperability, agent-based systems and the Semantic Web.

    Databases: includes the investigation of techniques, methods and tools for data storage, information retrieval, data mining, data integration, knowledge discovery and recommendation systems.

    Computer Science in Education: approaches the development and application of tools, techniques and methodologies for teaching-learning. It includes works related to virtual learning environments, distance education, intelligent tutor systems and languages for knowledge representation.

  • Network Computers and Multimedia Group is currently interested in research involving concepts, methodologies, and techniques applied to Computer Networks, Multimedia and Web Systems, Ubiquitous Computing and Human Computer Interaction. The projects developed by the researchers, students and and developers in this group touch the following topics: Network Virtualization; Cloud Computing; Software-Defined Networking (SDN), DataCenter Networking (DCN); Network Performance Measurement and Monitoring; Internet of Things (IoT); Wireless sensor network; Collaborative systems (crowdsourcing); Immersive experiences (VR and mulsemedia).

Welcome to the UFES Postgraduate Program in Computer Science!

The Postgraduate Program in Computer Science fosters the scientific development of researchers and higher education professors. With a long history of excellence in postgraduate education, the program brings together scholars from diverse fields within computer science performing cutting edge research, thus contributing to professional enhancement in public and private organizations.

Based at the Technology Faculty of the Federal University of Espírito Santo, the Postgraduate Program in Computer Science was established in 1994, with the creation of the master's degree. Through the rise in scientific output, the doctoral degree was accredited in 2010. Since its accreditation, the program has awarded 325 masters, five doctoral degrees and has 85 master’s and 37 doctoral students currently enrolled.

The program is based in Vitória-ES, offering the course of **MSc in Computer Science** since 1994 e the course of **Doctoral Degree in Computer Science** since 2010 and has an academic qualification profile certified by CAPES, receiving 4 on its last evaluation.

The program already has 399 masters and 32 doctors and counts with 112 students regularly enrolled, being 64 in the masters and 48 in the doctorate.
