Welcome to TICAL 2012!

The arrival of information and communication technologies (ICT) into organisations in general and to universities in particular has produced a radical change in the way they do their work. Today, the university faces a scenario full of new and increasing demands, which implies their ICT units’ strategy is permanently adapted in order to help the organisation meet its strategic objectives.

Within this context, it is extremely important to exchange experiences about aspects that today represent first-order concerns when planning ICT management, the development and implementation of services, with effectiveness and quality standards, and decision-making regarding the incorporation of emerging technologies, among others.

With the aim of contributing to these issues, the Network of Information and Communication Technologies Directors from Latin American Universities (TICAL), with the support of RedCLARA, is organising its second regional conference, TICAL 2012, which will be held in Lima, Peru, on July 2 and 3, 2012.

Building on the success obtained by TICAL 2011, held in Panama City on 20-21 June 2011, TICAL 2012 invites to engage in a new space for reflection, exchange of knowledge and good practices which address these issues, with the purpose of contributing to the improvement and optimisation of the region’s universities’ management and work.

TICAL 2012 will be held in Lima, Peru, on July 2nd and 3rd, 2012.
