ANNOUNCEMENT FOR A RESEARCH SCHOLAR
 
It is open for enrollment a three year Research Scholarship (BI) integrated in the Project PTDC/EIA/69988/2006 entitled Computational Approach to Ontology Profiling of Scientific Research Organisations (COPSRO), hosted in research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/) of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and funded by Fundao para a Cincia e a Tecnologia (FCT/MCTES), whose conditions are:

Object of Scientific Activity: The aim of the COPSRO project is to develop a methodology for profiling scientific research organisations based on mapping the activity they conduct on an ontology of the field in which they operate. The methodology will be applied to CS departments of Universities in Portugal and UK, having as ontology the ACM classification system (http://www.acm.org/class/1998/ccs98.html).
The goal of the proposed research, in the field of additive and fuzzy clustering, is threefold: i) to work on an evolutionary algorithm to extend additive clustering; ii) to extend the proportional membership fuzzy clustering to relational fuzzy clustering; iii) to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of relational proportional membership fuzzy clustering and additive clustering with respect to the profiling problem.
