Prof. Dr. Diogo Ribeiro
Polytechnic of Porto, Portugal

Diogo Ribeiro is Adjunct Professor at Polytechnic of Porto – School of Engineering (ISEP-IPP) and holds a Bachelor in Civil Engineering (2002), a Master in Structural Engineering (2005) and a PhD in Civil Engineering (2012), all from the University of Porto. He is Director of the Bachelor course in Civil Engineering of ISEP (since 2014) and Director of the Postgraduate Programs in BIM Coordination (since 2019) and Prefabrication in Concrete (since 2020). He is a regular invited teacher on Civil Engineering master and postgraduate courses on University of São Paulo (Brazil) and Federal University of Ouro Preto (Brazil). He is also specialist in Metrology by the Portuguese Order of Chartered Engineers (2018) and Integrated Member of the Institute of R&D in Structures and Construction (CONSTRUCT). His main research interests are related to remote inspection, computer vision, artificial intelligence, automatic calculation of structures, Building Information Modeling (BIM), digital construction, digital railways, railway infrastructures, structural testing and experimentation, model updating and validation, and damage identification. Diogo Ribeiro was coordinator or researcher in more than 20 R&D projects funded by the industry, FCT and EU programs in the field of railway infrastructures and digital construction. Recently, he was co-Editor of the Springer Books "Industry 4.0 for the Built Environment Methodologies, Technologies and Skills" and "Structural Health Monitoring Based on Data Science Techniques”, as well as main Editor of the Springer Book Series “Digital Innovations in Architecture, Engineering and Construction”. He was visiting researcher at Bauhaus Universität Weimar (Germany) and University California San Diego (UCSD) and was awarded with a Fulbright Grant for doctoral researchers/teachers by Fundação Luso-Americana and FCT (2016).

Assit. Prof. Clara Pimenta do Vale
University of Porto, Portugal

Clara Pimenta do Vale (1967) is an Architect from the University of Porto (1991) who specialised in building physics and Portuguese 20th-century construction history. She holds an MSc in Building Construction from the Faculty of Engineering (1999) and a PhD in Architecture (2012).
Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architecture, a member of the FAUP Executive Board, a Deputy Director of CEFA - Centre of Studies of the Faculty of Architecture, and an Integrated Researcher of CEAU - Centre of Studies of Architecture and Urbanism, member of the following groups DFL- Digital Fabrication Lab and PACT- Architectural Heritage of the City and the Territory [lines ARAPE - Actions of Architectural Rehabilitation of the Built Heritage and EHC - Studies in the History of Construction which she coordinates].
Her research focus includes Construction History (from a learning perspective to respond to current challenges such as heritage conservation, building rehabilitation, sustainability, or climate change), Vernacular Architecture (proximity to local, natural, regenerative materials, and the rational use of resources), the study of building materials from a historical perspective (cork, natural cement, earth, wood, ceramics), and new technologies applied to the construction and rehabilitation of the built heritage (photogrammetry, laser scanning, thermography, modelling, digital fabrication).
