To be held between September 3 and 5, at the Centro Internacional de Convenciones y Exposiciones Las Américas, in the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, the traditional TICAL Conference and the 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting opened its calls to present papers on the theme "Digital Transformation in Institutions of Higher Education, Science and Culture", and invite the interested parties to apply between February 26 and May 7, 2018 at 24:00 GMT (closing time of both calls). The papers must be sent in strictly compliance with the format established in the Authors' Guide of both events (download it at: http://redclara.net/images/stories/doc/Guia_Autores_TICAL2018_eCiencia2018.doc).
TICAL and the Latin American e-Science Meeting will be developed jointly for the second consecutive year. The 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting seeks to offer a new space for the exchange of knowledge and good practices in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the areas of Biodiversity, e-Health, Environment, Astronomy, Art and Culture in Network, Humanities and High Energy Physics, considered as priority. Meanwhile, TICAL2018 will reach its eighth edition privileging works that present results of experiences of implementation of ICT strategies and solutions that contribute to the digital transformation of the University, in the following thematic areas: collaboration, process improvement, personalization, governance and ICT management, and infrastructure and security.
TICAL2018 and the 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting have individual and distinct calls because of the different public to which they are addressed, the proposed thematic lines and, above all, to its way of approaching the digital transformation, the first from the Superior Education area and, the second, from the world of Science and Arts.
Regarding the benefits for the selected works, both TICAL and the e-Science Meeting will cover the costs of transferring one of the researchers responsible for the selected paper to the venue of the events (Cartagena de Indias, Colombia).
