Collaborative Workshop UAG-UdeG, Mexico and BSC

Fecha: 12/Jul/2017 Time: 09:30 - 14/Jul/2017 Time: 13:00

Primary tabs


Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG) and Universidad de Guadalajara (UdeG) are two well-known Mexican universities located in Guadalajara, 3rd most important city in the country and Mexican Silicon Valley (e.g., tech companies like Oracle, Intel, IBM and Motorola operate there). UAG and UdeG computer science programs are recognized by the Mexican Council of Science and Technology (CONACyT) as “international quality programs” and most of their students benefit from CONACyT financial support for conducting their studies and realizing up to 6 months internships abroad. Looking to consolidate their educational offer, we will receive the visit of a group of professors and students from both institutions, from 12-14th July, interested in discovering BSC-UPC research lines for establishing new academic and research collaborations.

This event is organised under the Severo Ochoa Program of Excelence in BSC and the attendance is by invitation only.
