Time flies – one year in Spain

So…one year passed since I came to Spain. As expected, it was a major change, especially that I’ve decided to finally start a PhD after working for past years in Ireland at the DERI institute.

My first year on the university was in large part about participating in obligatory PhD courses (in spanish!). Now, I’m almost done with that (the student year formally ends in September). For each of the courses students have to prepare some kind of work – usually a publication style paper and present it in class room for others. Depending on the course type I was writing and investigating some interesting topics. I’ve put quite some work into this, hence, I figured I’ll publish the papers here:

  • Semantic Web evolution: towards the usability of data (for Aplicaciones y Servicios Avanzados Internet course) [paper]
  • The Two Cultures (for Aplicaciones y Servicios Avanzados Internet course) [presentation]
  • Overview of Cloud Computing large-scale processing technologies (Metodologias y Arquitecturas Orientadas a Objetos para Sistemas Telematicos) [paper] [presentation]
  • Dynamic FAQ systems (Agentes Inteligentes. Aspectos Metodologicos, Logicos y de Contexto) [paper] [presentation]
  • Sentiment Analysis: Introduction and State of the Art overview (Tecnologias Lingüisticas y Aplicaciones en la Web) [paper] [presentation]
  • Metodología de desarrollo ágil para sistemas móviles (Temas Avanzados de Ingenieria de Servicios Telematicos) [paper]
  • some paper about PhD Thesis planning (Metodologia y Documentacion Cientifica) [paper eng] [paper esp]
  • bunch of  writeups about seminars on UPM during the year (for Seminario de Investigación course)

Hello (research) world!

Yep, it’s a fact. After quite some years of my engagement in various research projects, I’ve finally decided to run a research blog and publish information about various things I do or think about with relation to my scientific work.

Time will tell how sucessful I’ll be with this but I plan to update this space constantly and publish the progress/news of my work on PhD. Also most likely I’ll put here some ideas regarding my work, since lately I’m getting a lot of those and I figured it’s part of my work to share this too!

Welcome and enojoy.
