Semiotic Engineering Groups

Other groups in Brazil do research that has been rapidly increasing the depth and scope of Semiotic Engineering. Among them, we highlight the following:

  • PENSI (UFMG Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais)
  • SERG.UFF (UFF Niterói, Rio de Janeiro)
  • SEDA (UFC Quixadá, Ceará)



The Núcleo de Pesquisa em Engenharia Semiótica e Interação (PENSI) » was created at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) by Professor Raquel Prates » (SERG alumna, 1998).

The main research topics at PENSI are:

  • Semiotic Engineering Theory
  • Communicability Evaluation Methods
  • Collaborative Systems
  • Teaching-Learning Systems
  • Interaction with New Technologies or in New Contexts
  • Extensible Interfaces
  • Accessibility



In 2019, Professor Luciana Salgado » (SERG alumna, 2011) created SERG.UFF » at the Federal Fluminense University (UFF).

The main research topics at SERG.UFF are:

  • Semiotic Engineering Theory and Methods;
  • Cultural issues in Human-Computer Interaction;
  • Human Values in Human-Computer Interaction;
  • e-Health and Well Being;
  • Gamification and Game Analytics;
  • Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence
  • Computational Reasoning Acquisition;
  • Human-Data Interaction
  • E-Gov



In 2021, Professor Ingrid Monteiro » (SERG alumna, 2015) and Professor Vinícius Pereira (UFMT) created SEDA - Semiotic Engineering and Digital Art » at the Federal University of Ceará - Quixadá Campus (UFC-Quixadá).

The main research topics at SEDA include semiotic, aesthetic, and discursive specificities of messages encoded in programming languages or computer interfaces, for artistic purposes.
