The Information Systems and Information Management research line investigates in the areas of information management, information retrieval, information processing, digital preservation and research data management. Specifically, there is work in contexts such as web mining, recommender systems, social web, semantic web, and text mining.
Work in digital preservation includes models, methods and tools particularly in the area of database preservation, research data repository management and e-science.To do so, InfoLab combines different backgrounds on Informatics Engineering and Information Science.
Additionally, InfoLab showcases its “Made in FEUP”, quality open-source software. The InfoLab vision is to give back to the community the results of its research, after maturing the outcomes and transforming them into quality engineering solutions. These are ready to be used by third parties involved in production environments.
