About InfoBlender

InfoBlender is a periodic seminar organised by HASLab. It is a scientific colloquium that aims at gathering people from academia and industry, as well as the general public, to present and discuss interesting ideas, publications, work in progress,  rehearsals talks, etc.  InfoBlender tries to tighten the gaps between different research areas and groups, especially those of HASLab, by blending their diverse information, hence the name InfoBlender. Each seminar cycle is usually composed of one talk session and proceeded by a coffee session where informal announcements and discussions are held.


InfoBlender seminars are usually held bi-weekly on Wednesdays after lunch time. However, different times are possible depending on the case.


InfoBlender is held at the Departamento de Informatica, University of Minho, Gualtar Campus. You can reach the department by following the indications here.
The coffee session usually takes place in the lounge at the 4th floor ("Sala de Estar") and the talk session at the auditorium of the 1st floor (Auditório), but this is sometimes subject to change.


InfoBlender was founded by Ali Shoker, who is the current organiser with the help of Paula Rodrigues on the dissemination and logistics part.
