In 2021, TICAL and “e-Science” will discuss the topic “Rethinking the University driven by digital technologies”. As well as in previous years, both events have individual and different calls, due to the audiences to which they are addressed, to the proposed thematic lines and, above all, to their way of approaching digital transformation.

Thus, TICAL seeks papers that present the implementation of solutions and strategies in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that support or contribute to the exercise of rethinking technological applications in Higher Education Institutions. Meanwhile, the e-Science Meeting will choose experiences that show the development of collaborative initiatives that involve the use of ICT in different areas of Science: Astronomy, High Energy Physics, Environment, Biodiversity, Humanities, Art, Science of Life, e-Health, Computer Science, Computing / Information Systems, Economics, Administration Sciences.
