WORKSHOPS

Learning Antenna Theory through an Experiential Teaching Approach to Undergraduate Students.

Ana V. Morales Bezeira

The theory of antennas and transmission of radio waves, in the programs of wireless communications networks and telecommunications for undergraduate students are highly theoretical, resulting in little interest on the part of the participants and even difficult to understand content. Therefore, this workshop focuses on teaching through the manufacture of Wi-Fi antennas working in the 2.4Ghz band, through experimentation and testing them in the classroom.

Session requirements:

To meet the objectives, students should have a small set of materials, mostly recyclable materials such as metal cans and small pieces of copper wire.

Didactic-mathematical analysis of a type of problem that favors generalization processes generalization processes. A possible entry to computational thinking.

Flavia Buffarini

Fabiana Rosso

Francisco Bavera

The purpose of this workshop is to make visible the role of solving a class of problems in the construction of computational thinking, based on didactic-mathematical reflection within the framework of Didactics of Mathematics.

Computational thinking is a problem solving process that includes -but is not limited to- characteristics such as: formulating problem solving strategies in a way that allows or facilitates its solution, using or not computers; representing data through abstractions, such as models or simulations; automating resolutions using algorithmic thinking; identifying, analyzing and implementing possible resolutions with the aim of achieving the most efficient and effective combination of steps and resources; generalizing and transferring this solving process to other problems.

Previous activity

Taking into account the nature of the activity that brings us together in this meeting, and with the purpose of maximizing the use of this the purpose of maximizing the use of the meeting, we propose the following work method. way of working. We present only the first instructions of the problems that we will address in the workshop for you to the workshop so that you can solve them and write down the strategies for solving them. These will be the starting point of the study that we will carry out.

Deep Learning Basics

Israel Chaparro Cruz


Companies around the world are using artificial intelligence AI as an important tool to address the challenges that the market demands of them. Deep learning is a powerful approach to AI that uses multi-layered artificial neural networks to provide state-of-the-art accuracy in tasks such as object detection, speech recognition and language translation. In this workshop, you will learn how deep learning works, train models from scratch, tools and tricks to achieve highly accurate results. Leveraging state-of-the-art models, previously trained and freely available to save time and quickly run your application.

Introduction to Software Defined Networking (SDN)

Rodrigo Santos


Software-defined networking (SDN) is an emerging trend in the growth of data networks. Computer networks first emerged from dedicated telephone links between large machines and later incorporated concepts such as local area networks. As networks grow, the difficulties to organize the flow of information in an efficient way also increase with the additional difficulty that modifying a certain topology or path configuration requires the individual reprogramming of each of the network elements with the different variants that this may have. The workshop will present the main concepts associated with Software Defined Networks, their main protocols, controllers, and will advance on planning and security mechanisms based on these.

Migration from monolithic architectures to microservices

Hernan Astudillo


Traditionally, many corporate applications have been developed as a whole (a "monolith"), which makes corrective and preventive maintenance difficult. Modern applications are developed directly to be executed in "the cloud" and many of them are built and deployed as a set of microservices. "Modernizing" monolithic applications to microservices requires addressing the multiplicity of possible designs, technology alternatives, and trade-offs between them. This workshop will explore the modernization of monolithic applications to microservices, the main methodological alternatives, and several techniques and algorithms proposed in the literature. No prior knowledge of cloud, microservices or trade-offs is required.

The Stories Behind the Mid-Year Cyber Threats Report

Álvaro Giraldo


The data from SonicWall's Cyber Threat Report 2022 Mid-Year Update is in: malware is up, ransomware is down, and the global spotlight is shifting. But why, and what does this mean for the future of the threat landscape?

  • Top cybercrime trends in the first half of 2022.

  • Which industries and locations have been hit the hardest (and where the situation is getting worse).

  • Why the forces behind the reversals and accelerations in threat trends may not be what you think they are

Introduction to Mixed Reality Development

Pablo Figueroa

Vivian Gómez

Mixed Reality (MR) covers more familiar terms such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, and newer terms such as eXtended Reality (XR). MR is a way to interact more naturally with the computer, bringing information closer to the user's senses. This short course aims to give participants a better understanding of the potential behind MR, learn about the elements necessary for its development and practice with one of the most popular technologies today, the Meta Quest 2 helmet.

"Machine learning with convolutional neural networks, practical examples with Python."

Manuel Guillermo Forero

Wilson Javier Sarmiento

Convolutional neural networks are one of the most powerful tools recently developed for image processing and analysis. In order to learn about them, this workshop will introduce the programming paradigm using machine learning techniques, focusing on the use of neural networks. Making a presentation of the perceptron, the error function, the descending gradient, error backpropagation and neural networks themselves, doing a practical experiment in Python. Then we will continue with the description of a convolutional neural network, an implementation for image classification, culminating with a second implementation.

Session requirements:

  • Programming (not necessarily Phyton)

HCI Workshop: The geometry of the design ¿Rows or Columns?

William Joseph Giraldo Orozco

Allow yourself to learn some secrets of nature, its geometry and how we interpret them in the first few milliseconds.

¡It's a matter of survival!

Discover the keys for understanding the efficiency in the conversion of a design. Observers of your design will move their eyes much less and they will do the task with less effort, even if there is not an apparent task.


¡Communicate more effectively!

We will deal with principles such as: synchrony, grouping, granularity. Additionally: the place of things, the geometry of the whole, among others.


¡I guarantee that you will never see the world as you did before!


¡It will be completely interactive and practical!
