Hello, I’m  Aécio Solano Rodrigues Santos.

I’m a graduate student in Computer Science at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) under supervision of professor Nivio Ziviani. I’m a colaborator of LAboratory for Treating INformation (LATIN), where I’m involved in a project that aims to develop the InWeb Crawler (a Web Crawler focused in the Brazilian Web). My dissertation will be about the problem of scheduling web page visits of the InWeb Crawler.

The research topics I’m currently interested are:

  • Web Information Retrieval
  • Machine Learning
  • Data Mining
  • Recommender Systems

I’m also a Free and Open Source Software enthusiast. Nowadays, I’m mainly just a user, but I’m begining to take a more active role collaborating with some projects related to Ubuntu Community doing some translations to Brazilian Portuguese and reporting bugs. Here is my profile at Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/~aeciosan.

Besides that, I love music and hope someday be a decent guitar player… 🙂
