Jorge Miguel Correia Antunes Gomes

Hi, my name is Jorge Gomes. I am currently getting a master's degree in Computer Science Engineering at University of Lisbon, Faculdade de Ciências, and an Assistant Researcher at LaSIGE, member of the Human Computer Interaction and Multimedia Research Team (HCIM) since September 2011. My master's dissertation is in the area of data visualization, human computer interaction and web applications.

I am also a Web Developer, a videogame enthusiast and rock/metal music lover. I enjoy partaking in Geocaching trips with my friends and dreaming about 48-hours days! :D


My area of research entails Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization.

I'm currently involved in a project called VIRUS (Video Information Retrieval Using Subtitles), aimed to develop a Video Information Retrieval system that will operate on video libraries composed of subtitled documents, based on the simultaneous analysis of three information streams: video signal, subtitles and audio signal. The system allows visualizing videos in meaningful ways and accepts queries from the user to find portions of video documents that match the queries. This project is supported by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (PTDC/EIA-EIA/101012/2008).

I was involved in an EU funded project called GUIDE (Gentle User Interfaces for Elderly Users) aimed at automatic user interface adaptation of applications and services to specific impairments and preferences of elderly users.

My current research interests are:

  • Human Computer Interaction;
  • Usability;
  • Accessibility;
  • Mobile Systems and Interaction;
  • Multi-modal interaction.
  • Information Visualization
  • Computer And Network Security


I am/was involved in the following projects:

  • VIRUS (September 2012 - December 2013)
  • GUIDE (October 2011 - December 2011)
