The event will take place in the Salón de Grados (purple room) of Building C1 of the Campus las Lagunillas of the University of Jaén.

During the event, a conference entitled "The Magnificent Seven" will be given by Juan Ramón Velasco Pérez, Professor of Telematics Engineering at the University of Alcalá.

Throughout his professional life he has participated in 50 research projects (more than 30 of them as principal investigator), with both public and private funding, and has more than 150 scientific publications.

The Magnificent Seven

The gender bias in Information and Communication Technologies is more than evident. Everyone knows a few names of people who have made possible the level of digital interconnectedness we enjoy today. And most of those names are male. It might seem that there have been no women who have been responsible for these advances; nothing could be further from the truth. In this talk we will discover the life and work of seven Magnificent Women, seven female engineers who have earned, on their own merits, the recognition of this digital society in which we live.

The event can be attended in the following modalities:

a) In person. This year, in accordance with current Covid regulations, there are no capacity limitations.

b) Virtual. Through the room
