2nd International Symposium on "Generation and Transfer of Knowledge for Digital Transformation"  "SITIC2023"

2nd International Symposium on "Generation and Transfer of Knowledge for Digital Transformation"


Purpose and scope of SITIC 2023

The development of modern societies cannot be conceived without digital technologies. The digital transformation of all socio-economic processes allows an increase in their efficiency and effectiveness, for which advanced industrialization technologies, also called enabling technologies, are necessary. This information-based revolution generates a continuous development of the formats and ways in which information is searched, retrieved, processed and used.

It is impossible to advance in this development environment without being able to close the R+D+i cycle, in which knowledge transfer plays a crucial role. The knowledge generated during an investigation has to be converted into solving-problem technologies and enable efficient production processes. On the other hand, the development of innovative computer products and services, which make it possible to achieve technological independence and the generation of exportable products, is not possible without the incorporation of new computational methods based on self-knowledge.

The Symposium "Knowledge Generation and Transfer for Digital Transformation" is aimed at disseminating the main scientific results achieved in the field of information technologies and promoting a framework for scientific exchange within the academic-scientific center, with the productive sector and services. This guarantees the updating of existing knowledge in this field and its transfer to different actors in society. In summary, the Symposium will be focused on the latest technologies in Computing and the University-Company relationship in the Information Technologies (IT) field based on knowledge transfer and innovation.

The symposium includes tutorial courses, specialized conferences and paper presentations.

Special Session:

As part of the Symposium, a special session will be held on the theme "Impacts of Chat GPT in university education", with the purpose of discussing experiences and criteria on the impact that this result of AI, as well as other similar ones, have on the teaching-learning process at the university level. In this case, the presentation of works will be welcome, even if they are not finished research on the subject.

Rules for sending contributions

Contributions must be original and adapted to the themes of the symposium. They will be submitted to a peer-reviewing process by the Scientific Committee of the Symposium and evaluated according to criteria of scientific rigor, topicality and contribution to the areas of knowledge in the fundamental thematic axes.

Papers must be written according to the format established in the call for the UCLV Scientific Convention 2023, in Spanish or English with a maximum length of 6 pages. They must be uploaded to the symposium site. The accepted papers will be published in the convention proceedings under the Editorial Samuel Feijoó of the Central University "Marta Abreu" of Las Villas, with ISBN 978-959-312-570-3.

The authors of selected papers will be encouraged to prepare extended versions for publication in journals after an extra peer-reviewing process; papers will be selected according to their rigor and scientific level and according to the characteristics of the journal. The selected Journals are: Revista Cubana de Ciencias Informáticas (https://rcci.uci.cu), Revista Cubana de Transformación Digital (https://rctd.uic.cu), and the Iberoamerican Journal of Science Measurement and Communication (https://ijsmc.pro-metrics.org). In the case of the Semantic Web theme, the proceedings will be published by Frontiers in AI and Application (https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/artificial-intelligence)
