Welcome to IT Porto! We are a research center at the University of Porto, which is affiliated with the Instituto de Telecomunicções, a national institute with six different locations and about 190 researchers with a Ph.D working on a wide range of topics related to communications engineering. IT Porto was launched in January 2007 and has since grown steadily to a full bodied institute with more than 70 members and a strong presence both in the School of Sciences (FCUP) and the School of Engineering (FEUP). By focusing on key competitive areas that span fundamental research in information theory, design of communication protocols, algorithms for multimedia processing and, more recently, security and human-computer interaction, IT Porto is well poised to become an international center of excellence in information and communication technologies, as well as in training high-potential young researchers from various parts of the world.
