Call for papers: 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting
Authors Guide: TICAL2018 Conference & 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting
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 field of research, aiming to contribute to the improvement and the optimization of the management and the work of scientific groups of the region. We invite Latin American researchers to present papers that reflect their experiences in the development of collaborative initiatives involving the use of ICT in the areas of Biodiversity, Health, Environment, Astronomy, Art and Culture in Network, Humanities and High Energy Physics, considered as priority according to the themes defined below.
Open Science is the movement that works so that scientific research, its data and its dissemination are accessible at all levels of a research society, be it amateur or professional. It covers practices such as the publication of research and campaigns, facilitating the communication of scientific knowledge; the initiative of a free and open culture is a social movement that promotes the freedom to distribute and modify creative works in the form of open content through the use of the Internet and other communication means.
The 2nd Latin American e-Science Meeting will be held, for the second year, along with the TICAL Conference, whose call is driven to the presentation of works in Digital Transformation in Higher Education Institutions (see the call for TICAL2018).

It is hoped that the papers will present an experience that will allow the audience to learn at least the following aspects:

  • The impact of the developed research

  • ICT used in the development of the research and the description of the support and/or contribution given to the fulfillment of the research objective.

  • Description of the collaboration network that participated in the project.

  • Description of the experience that was gained in building the collaborative project teams and strategies, particularly among researchers and technology experts (learned lessons).
