About Porto Alegre

Porto Alegre is the capital and largest city of the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Founded in 1772, the city is one of the top cultural, political and economic centers of Brazil. Two Mercosul countries, Argentina and Uruguay, border on the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The city of Porto Alegre is multicultural. A set of multiple expressions of different faces and ethnic and religious origins makes Porto Alegre a rare space where contrasts and differences are always welcome.


The Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, UFRGS (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul) is a century-old educational institution nationally and internationally recognized. It is centered in Porto Alegre – the capital city of the State of Rio Grande do Sul – and it offers academic programs from all different fields of knowledge, for all stages of education, ranging from elementary to graduate school. As a public institution dedicated to serving the community and to building its future with a critical consciousness, UFRGS respects diversity, prioritizes innovation and, above all, reaffirms its commitment to education and spreading of knowledge, inspired by ideals of freedom and solidarity.

SBESC 2023 will be held at Prédio Centenário da Escola de Engenharia: The Porto Alegre School of Engineering was founded in 1896, one of the first higher education institutions in Rio Grande do Sul. Originally an autonomous school, from 1934 it became the University of Porto Alegre, which after federalization in 1951 became to be called UFRGS. The School's main building, currently known as the Centenary building of the UFRGS School of Engineering, was inaugurated in 1900, and was the first to occupy the area that we now know as the UFRGS Center Campus.
