Brief Biography

Rogério Patrício Chagas do Nascimento was born in Lagarto City, Sergipe State, Brazil. He studied software engineering at the Universidade Federal de Sergipe in Aracaju (Brazil) for his undergraduate degree. He completed his Master Science degree within the Centro de Informática at the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco in Recife (Brazil) investigating about Distributed Systems applied to Distance Learning, Distributed Video Service and Media' Streams in Middleware. His professional experience was with the Tribunal de Justiça do Estado de Sergipe (Court of Sergipe State) working as system analyst trainee and computer programmer. He had over 4 years of teaching experience in the CEFET/SE - Centro Federal de Ensino Tecnológico de Sergipe (Technological Federal Center of Sergipe) within the UNED of Lagarto city, where he was the Chair of Industrial Informatics Department. He finished his PhD at the Universidade de Aveiro (Portugal) in 2004, where worked with XML Family and Workflow Systems in the construction of an original Ubiquitous Web Framework. His previous collaboration was in the Instituto de Robótica at Universitat de València (Spain) as Invited Researcher. Now, he is Assistant Professor at Universidade do Algarve (Portugal) since July of 2005.



PhD in Informatics Engineering at Universidade de Aveiro, PORTUGAL. From March/2001 to Julio/2004 - His main goal was create the framework named FLoWPASS and implement the case study that inspired it. He discussed the interrelation amongst the WPA, the XML Family and its integration with Database Legacy Systems. The FLoWPASS main idea is to separate the workflow process logic from the application components. For that, he used workflow process management techniques based on WfMC Reference Model, Java programming to implement the process logic, and XML Data Representation for data and metadata modeling. He tested a workflow process automation prototype to be used in the case study: the information management system of the Portuguese Parliament legislative processes. He implemented a first prototype to show the laws’ workflow processes based on WfMC XPDL Schema and he suggested the implementation of some applications to show the multimedia information related to this laws, based on XPDL, WfMC Interfaces, XML, XML Web Services, SOAP and WSDL. For the applications components, he built XML Schemas to generate XML files and he tested XSL files, which may be used to format data for each possible system front-end like PDAs, third generation mobile phones and desktop personal computers.

Master Degree in Computer Science at Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, BRAZIL. From March/97 to September/99 - Research Areas: Distributed Systems and Software Engineering. Research Lines: Distance Learning, Distributed Video Service and Media' Streams in Middleware. Subject of the M.Sc. Thesis: A Distributed Video Service CORBA-based to Support Distance Learning Applications in WWW  - His particular interest was to ensure the development of a computing environment that supports multimedia applications on Distance Learning, using the World Wide Web. Specifically, he meant a video service based on CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture: a middleware to support distributed applications). Oriented by Prof. Carlos Ferraz, PhD in Kent, ENGLAND.


Previous Positions

Invited Researcher at Universitat de València. On behalf of chairing the EATIS’2006 – Euro American Conference on Telematics and Information Systems. He also is starting a collaboration on Web Architecture, Grid Computing and Semantic Web areas which probably will generate a book that will serve as a guide to professors and software engineers increase their skills. The book will consist in the current hot topics and new technologies that are being used to make Web applications today.

Chair and Lecturer of Industrial Informatics Course at UNED Lagarto/CEFET-SE, BRAZIL (Decentralized Learning Branch of Lagarto City / Technological Federal Center of Sergipe). From February/1997 to March/2001 - four different duties: professor and lecturer; managing of infrastructure used by the teachers (laboratories: hardware and software); tutoring for trainees and graduate students; and, assisting UNED strategic goals (partnerships with companies).  The UNED Lagarto is a federal institution of technological learning that graduates technicians in Mechanics, Buildings and Computer Science areas.


Previous R&D Projects

Coordinator of Caravela Digital Project at Universidade de Aveiro, PORTUGAL. The Caravela Digital was born in the Universidade de Aveiro to manage the informatics and cybernetics telecommunications via satellite to support the humanitarian Sabiá Project.  The Caravela Digital is based on two pillars: a Web Portal located in Brazil (mirrors in Spain and Portugal) and a Fleet System inside the scholar tall ship.  The Web Portal will implement services based in the XML family, Web Services, Ubiquitous Learning and Computing, mobile and wireless communications with ubiquitous Web devices. The Fleet System enables the vessel to be continuously online, permitting to implement services using the GPS localization and online web cameras.  The Web Portal works in background storing videos, images and scientific or any intellectual production of the Sabiá Project.

Member of DiViLab Project at Universidade de Aveiro, PORTUGAL. The search work was related to a conceptual study about the use of COM Activex components, according the Object Model of the MS Office 2000 package. Our initial aim was verify how we could develop Add-ins, Templates, Wizards or Libraries (*.dll) to be reutilised by another members of the DiViLab Project in their desktops. The project was aborted by the Universidade de Aveiro in July of 2001. More information can be found in

Coordinator of Escola Virtual Project at UNED Lagarto/CEFET-SE, BRAZIL. The Escola Virtual Project proposed to compile lines of direction to create educational Web environments and a collection of courses to manipulate digital medias. Its main idea consisted in the creation of the informatics laboratories equipped with hardware and software tools which could capture (textual and iconographic) information by scanners and digital cameras for a later storing and manipulation. In this way, could be possible the creation of new learning courses about local, literature, panting, music and dance stiles. The project incentive a “digital memory” of the regional culture and folklore traditions through the edition and processing of digital media (photos, audios, videos), storing them in magnetic media (CD-ROMs) and publicizing then in the Web. The project slogan was: “Think globally, Act locally”. In 2002, the Project was renamed to "Projeto Vitae" and was extended to technicians in Mechanics and  Buildings areas.
