Porto Digital, in Recife and other cities in Brazil, Dr. Almeida in conjunction with the RiSE staff has been the main vehicle to introduce reuse ideas in industrial
and academic environment been responsible also to define the M.Sc. and Ph.D. courses focused on software reuse at the
Federal University of Pernambuco, C.E.S.A.R EDU, and UFBA. In the Government sector, Dr. Almeida is member of the advisory board in the area of Computer Science and Engineering from FAPESB, research agency for the
In the last years, Dr. Almeida has been Visiting Researcher in important groups working with software reuse such as University of Mannheim
(Colin Atkinson's Group), Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) (Bertrand Meyer's Group) [short period] and Malardalen University (MDH) (Ivica Crnkovic's Group).
He is also an IEEE Senior Member, and member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and the Brazilian Computer Society.
In addition, he leaded the conception on the first open source book on software reuse around the world, a awarded book on Guidelines for Young Researchers in Software Engineering, co-defined the First Software Reuse Program Residence (inspired in the Medical area) and
has worked as independent consultant involved in training, mentoring, consultant and solution development focused on software reuse. Dr. Almeida is also
