Last Friday the Computer Engineers Association of Castile and Leon held the IX Night of Computer Engineering . In representation of the BISITE  research group, it was an honour to receive the award for Most Relevant Computing Organisation in the community of Castile and Leon.

This award recognizes the multidisciplinary, interuniversity and international composition of the group, and highly values the main lines of research we regularly work with: Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Social computing, Distributed intelligent systems, Energy, Robotics, Technology Security, Bioinformatics, Computing creativity, and Educational technology.

This recognition serves as an important boost for a profession that, according to the Dean of the Association of Computer Technicians of Castile and Leon Jamie Diez, will be “fundamental in the future given that technology will change our way of thinking, company jobs, and people will have to reinvent themselves”, although he also acknowledges that it is still not highly regarded at a professional level.

Also from Salamanca, Luis Enrique Corredera de Colsa, CEO of Flag Solutions, received the award for Engineer of the Year. The computer engineer is also working toward a Master’s in Technology Security at the University of Salamanca.

And the Victoriano Provencio Award for Dissemination of Computer Sciences  went to “Once upon a time…computing” by the computer consulting firm Bitlan, for bringing the story of this science to the world.

 Congratulations to them as well.
