We address the design of environments for human use and exploration, in personal computing platforms, virtual and augmented reality, including architectural spaces supported by digital tools in their early design, conceptualization and fabrication phases.
We focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of information systems in an organizational context, addressing features like executive IS, decision support systems, relations between organizational IS and social collaborative networks, or niche IS’s like healthcare IS.
We address the lifecycle of large and complex software systems. We focus on the specification, provided services, architecture, design, implementation, quality assurance, operation and evolution, as well as on the associated processes, methods and tools.
We look at, explain and analyze human and social systems as complex systems and also as systems that are susceptible to computational modeling through mathematical tools.
The “3nd SUWMIAC - SUmmer Workshop Microsoft – ISCTE-IUL on Applied Computing”, will take place on the 30th. of October 2015. More informations and detailed agenda of the workshop, can be found here...
ISTAR-IUL, the Information Sciences, Technologies and Architecture Research Center is a new research unit of ISCTE-IUL, gathering researchers coming from other units, both at ISCTE-IUL such as ADETTI (extinct), BRU, CIES and DINAMIA, and from other public universities in the Lisbon area, such as LaSIGE (FC/UL) and CITI (FCT/UNL, extinct).
ISTAR is still going through the proposal and evaluation steps at FCT, and through the formal creation by the ISCTE-IUL boards. This site is new and still under construction.
