Internationalization

The professors of the PPCIC have been working on the internationalization process of the program. As actions in this sense stand out: (i) Bilingual program website, (ii) The participation of professors in the organization or a conference program committee, as well as in the editorial body of international journals, (iii) The partnership of professors with international institutions and researchers.

About the activities of the program’s professors in the Organization of International congresses, we highlight the organization of  Mini-Symposium Of Spectral Graph Theory International Linear Algebra Society at 2017 (https://ilas2017.math.iastate.edu/program/#minisymp). In the year 2018, the program’s professors organized the VIII Latin American on Cliques in Graphs (LAWCG 2018, http://lawcg2018.icomp.ufam.edu.br/) and the first Latin America Workshop on Data Science (LADaS 2018, http://eic.CEFET-rj.br/ladas2018/).

The participation in the Program Committee of the following events is also noteworthy:

Besides, PPCIC professors have partnered with the following international researchers:

  • Ali Mohammadian (IPM – Institute for Research in Fundamental SciencesIran
  • Andras Gyarfas (Hungarian Academy of Sciences)
  • Andras Sebo (GSCOP-Grenoble)
  • Cécile Roisin (Inria-Granoble)

The internationalization efforts of the program, in turn, rely on institutional support. In 2017 a commission was constituted, chaired by the Director of Research and Postgraduate, who was responsible for the elaboration of the Institutional Plan of internationalization of CEFET/RJ. This plan, approved by the higher councils at the beginning of 2018, presents an institutional diagnosis and defines strategic axes, objectives, goals, actions and indicators of follow-up aiming at the expansion and consolidation of the process of Internationalization of the institution, contemplating both the mobility in (reception of professors and students from abroad) regarding mobility out (sending professors and students abroad).

At the end of 2017, a commission was also established to elaborate the institutional project for internationalization of postgraduate studies, to submit a proposal for the institutional program for internationalization of Capes (PrInt call). This commission was attended by professors from the various programs of the CEFET/RJ and identified interfaces aiming to increase internationalization achievements.

It is added that the institutional plan for professors training is also being elaborated, defining a training policy that will allow and facilitate the clearance for post-doctoral, especially abroad. All these institutional actions, therefore, should contribute to the expansion of the international partnerships and collaborations of the PPCIC.
