Instituto de Computação, Universidade Federal de Alagoas, Brazil
Márcio Ribeiro is Adjunct Professor at the Institute of Computing at the Federal University of Alagoas (UFAL). He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the Federal University of Pernambuco (2012), a Master's in Computer Science from the same university (2008) and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the Federal University of Alagoas (2005). During his Master's, he participated in the Brazil Test Center research project in partnership with Motorola do Brasil, where he won the 2007 Outstanding Member Award. During his PhD, his proposal was awarded as the best proposal of the Doctoral Symposium of one of the most important conferences in the world in the area of systems and programming languages (ACM SIGPLAN Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages and Applications - OOPSLA), which won the John Vlissides Award, being the first Brazilian to receive such an award. His Doctoral tool was ranked First in the Tools Session of the Brazilian Software Congress (CBSoft 2011). His Doctoral Thesis was also considered the best in Brazil in Computing in 2012, an award granted during the Dissertation Theses Competition (CTD) at the Brazilian Congress of the Brazilian Computer Society (CSBC 2013).
Universidade Federal do Pará and ZUP, Brazil
Dr. Gustavo Pinto is an assistant professor at the Federal University of Pará, Brazil and the Head of Research at Zup Innovation, a Brazilian tech company. Dr. Pinto holds a PhD in Software Engineering from the Informatics Center at the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil. He has very broad interests in Software Engineering, including Open Source Software (communities and contributors), Human Aspects of Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, and Mining Software Repositories techniques. As a young researcher, he published over 100 research papers, some of them in the most important venues in his field (e.g., ICSE, ASE, CSCW, TSE, CACM, etc). He won several international research and service awards, including the MSR Ric Holt Early Career Achievement Award, in 2022, one ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper award in ICSE 2021, and one JSS Paper of the Year in 2019. He is a CNPq researcher (level 2), a scholarship only provided to exceptional Brazilian researchers. Since 2020, he has been serving as a (co-)Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development. He also started and was the co-host of first season of the Frontiers in Software Engineering (in PT-BR), a podcast for disseminating software engineering research. He authored two short e-books: one for young researchers and another one explaining open source licensing, and their hidden problems.
