Software-based Information Systems Engineering and Management Group (SEMAG)

SEMAG was founded in July of 2001 as a special interest group within the Dept. of Information Systems of Universidade do Minho.

Currently, SEMAG is a research group devoted to the advance of the state-of-the-art of software-based information systems, both on the engineering and management aspects of the following research tracks:

  • Modeling approaches for analysis and design;
  • Organizational and analytical data-intensive systems;
  • Metadata and ontologies for the semantic Web;
  • Process and project management life-cycles.

SEMAG conducts its research activities towards the methodological (requirements, analysis, design) and organizational (management, quality and standards) issues related with the software engineering discipline in the information systems application domain, and adopts the empirical and experimental research approaches.

In concrete, SEMAG supports research projects mainly framed by the design science research method and their variants; occasionally, the case study and the action research methods are also adopted.
