The purpose of these workshops, which have been conducted for more than twenty years, is to meet the training needs of technicians and professionals from Latin America and the Caribbean in the area of information technologies and communication, with emphasis on the practical aspects of networking, organization and project management in I.T. and recent technological developments in these fields.

The workshops also aim to identify and create individual and institutional bindings to contribute to the development of cooperative projects of national or regional scope using I.T. to support human resources training and propose solutions to the many and intense needs the region faces in different sectors such as Education, Health and Environment. In the past, this has been used to create successful initiatives with positive impact in Latin America.

The proposed program cover current issues with great demand in the region, selected by the International Program Committee, with input from the local organizers from the National Engineering University of Nicaragua, who have great knowledge about the training needs of the country. Consequently, seven theoretical and practical workshops will be conducted simultaneously, in order to participants being able to choose one they're interested most.

The workshop will feature about two dozen instructors from the Latin American region as well as the U.S. and Europe, associated with higher education institutions, research centers, technological innovations, international organizations that provide training services to developing countries , private sector companies and other organizations devoted to providing and promoting Internet services.
