About us

The Group of Intensification, Modeling, Simulation, Control and Optimization of Processes (GIMSCOP) was created in 2001 by the joint of the Process Control and Integration Laboratory (LACIP), created in 1997 by Prof. Jorge, with the Laboratory of Simulation (LASIM), coordinated at the time by Prof. Argimiro R. Secchi. The group is registered at CNPq as a research group and is coordinated since 2008 by Prof. Jorge O. Trierweiler, after the transfer of Prof. Argimiro R. Secchi to COPPE/UFRJ.

One of the main characteristics of GIMSCOP is its strong integration with companies, both through research projects and through the qualification of engineers who join the PPGEQ (Chemical Engineering Graduate Program) as Masters or Ph.D. students on a part-time basis.

The figure below shows the GIMSCOP logo designed in 2008 to reflect the vision and mission of the research group. The symbol is divided into two parts:

  • the upper part represents the real world, presenting an industrial plant that has its smoke represented by a leaf and its green background, symbols that refer to the concern with the environment and operational efficiency;
  • the lower part is related to the virtual world. This is represented by mathematical models that interact with the real world through control systems represented by the electronic circuits in the figure. The circuits also represent the roots from which new ideas emerge to become reality.

The remembrance of balance and feedback between these two worlds is represented by a similarity with the yin-yang symbol, which resembles the movement and alternation between the two parts. The search for this balance is the mission of GIMSCOP.
