Doctoral Consortium Chair


Fernando Brito e Abreu
ISTAR/ISCTE-IUL
Portugal
https://ciencia.iscte-iul.pt/public/person/fba


Brief Bio
Fernando Brito e Abreu is associate professor at ISCTE-IUL, a public university in Lisbon, where he is responsible for the MSc program in Computer Science and Management and one of the board members of the Information Sciences and Technologies and Architecture Research Center (ISTAR-IUL). He produced around two hundred scientific documents and his work is cited over two thousand times, according to Google Scholar. He was a pioneer of Empirical Software Engineering in Portugal, having created the QUASAR research group (QUantitative Approaches in Software engineering And Reengineering) Among his proposals are the MOOD (Metrics for Object Oriented Design) set, currently being used in industry and the Metamodel Driven Measurement (M2DM) approach. The latter allows for the abstract formalization of metrics upon a domain metamodel by using OCL, a constraint language that is part of the UML standard. M2DM was applied in several domains (e.g. object-oriented design, component-based development, business process modeling, IT infrastructures modeling). He is currently Associate Editor of the Software Quality Professional journal of the American Society for Quality, Portuguese delegate at IFIP TC2 (Software: Theory and Practice) and a senior advisor of the Brazilian MPS.BR Model Technical team. ...
