About the editors

Pedro Ricardo Morais Inácio has a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering, obtained from the Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI), Portugal, in 2005 and 2009 respectively. The Ph.D. work was performed in the enterprise environment of Nokia Siemens Networks Portugal S.A., through a Ph.D. grant from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology. He is a professor of Computer Science at UBI since 2010, where he lectures subjects related with information assurance and security, programming of mobile devices and computer based simulation, to graduate and undergraduate courses, namely to the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes in Computer Science and Engineering. He is currently the Head of the Department of Computer Science of UBI. He is an instructor of the UBI Cisco Academy.


Ana Paula Duarte is Full Professor at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FCS), University of Beira Interior, she is the Scientific Coordinator of Health Sciences Research Center (CICS-UBI) and Coordinator of Pharmaceutical Sciences PhD Program from FCS. After her B.Sc. (Pharmaceutical Sciences, 6-year program), was trainee assistant from 1987 to 1991 and assistant from 1991 to 1996 at Faculty of Engineering, University of Beira Interior. After the PhD (1996) she became Assistant Professor (1996-2000), Associated Professor (2000-2009) and is full professor since 2009. At 2009 she integrated FCS. From 2009 to 2013 she was vice-rector for Research and Innovation of University of Beira Interior. Since 2013, she is Scientific Advisor of “Centro de Biotecnologia de Plantas da Beira Interior”.


Paulo Fazendeiro received the Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering (2010) from the University of Beira Interior, Portugal. Currently he is an Assistant Professor at the Informatics Department of the University of Beira Interior. His research interests encompass Computational Intelligence and Granular Computing including the application of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy systems, knowledge discovery and evolutionary algorithms, multi-objective optimization and clustering techniques.


Nuno Pombo holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering, and is assistant professor, researcher and senior consultant.
