About us

CAMPS is a lab located at the Department of Computer Science of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), one of the most prestigious Brazilian universities.

Our members have backgrounds in fields as diverse as computer science, economics, linguistics and psychology. We are interested in bridging the gap among these areas by doing research linked to human behavior in social media and related topics.

CAMPS is a very internationally-oriented lab. In recent years, besides having hosted guests from around the globe, our students and researchers have visited and worked in collaboration with fine international institutions, including Boston University, Brown University, Harvard University, IIIT-Delhi, KAIST, Leiden University, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Northeastern University, Qatar Computing Research Institute and University of Cambridge.
