Information Systems Laboratory ‑ InfoLab

Research areas and projects at InfoLab concern information management and information retrieval, as illustrated in tools for web search, data analysis, research data management and digital preservation.

The Information Systems Lab (Infolab) is located at the Informatics Engineering Department at FEUP campus, on the 1st floor (room I 123) of the I building.

Location: FEUP Campus, Porto

Research Areas

Research areas

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.

Prototypes

Dendro

The Dendro platform is an open-source platform designed to help researchers describe their datasets, fully built on Linked Open Data and ontologies. Whenever researchers want to publish a dataset, they can export to repositories such as CKAN, DSpace, Invenio, or EUDAT's B2Share. More repositories can be added at will.   Github: https://github.com/feup-infolab/dendro

ANT

The ANT is a search engine for entities, developed at Infolab, that allows to search for contente in SIGARRA, the information systems of the University of Porto. The ANT connect groups of keywords groups to the respective entities, and uses this knowledge to improve search over a texto-only search.
