Welcome to Porto Interactive Center!

Porto Interactive Center (PIC) has two main areas of expertise: computer graphics and human computer interaction. The two industries that help drive and direct our research are entertainment and health care.

The scientific goal is to understand the foundation of 3D synthetic characters and how they behave in virtual and real environments. The overall technological goal is to improve interactive techniques and the 3D representation of emotion-driven characters.

We pursue interdisciplinary research between the fields of computer science, art and psychology.

PIC is led by Verónica Costa Orvalho and is located at Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto, Departamento de Ciências de Computadores.
