Researchers from ISLab receive Best Student Paper Award

A group of researchers from the Intelligent Systems Lab (ISLab), research group coordinated by Professor Paulo Novais (Department of Informatics) and integrated in the ALGORITMI Research Centre of the EEUM, won the Best Student Paper award at the PECCS 2015 - International Conference on Pervasive and Embedded Computing and Communication Systems. The authors presented a work entitled "Mental Workload Management as a Tool in e-Learning Scenarios", authored by André Pimenta, Sérgio Gonçalves, Davide Carneiro, Florentino Fdez-Riverola, José Neves and Paulo Novais. This work was developed in the context of the CAMCoF research project (Context-aware Multimodal Communication Framework), funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), and counted on the collaboration of Professor Florentino Fdez-Riveraola, from the University of Vigo. The main goal of the CAMCoF project is the development of an approach to model a computer user's context, with an emphasis on stress and fatigue, and the providing of this type of information to intelligent environments, so that richer interaction and communication processes can be developed. This will allow more efficient communication mechanisms between machines and their users. The awarded paper specifically detailed the applications of this approach in the scope of e-Learning.
