The summary in Spanish must indicate the format in which they are presenting the manuscript, as well as the type of track they are sending, whether it is Scientific or Technical, and identify the fields in which their work is carried out.

  • Articles can be submitted for evaluation in English or Spanish, for publication and exhibition you must maintain the chosen language.
  • The articles submitted to TIC.EC must be original and unpublished, and not published in any other conference or scientific journal. Only complete and finalized articles will be reviewed, not summaries. All articles will be reviewed by peer reviewers, who will verify compliance with quality standards and scientific validity.
  • TIC.EC receives two types of articles: Scientific articles and Technical Articles, which must be presented in the scientific and technical tracks respectively, according to the themes defined for the event.
  • The Scientific Articles will be oriented to promote the progress of science, new methods or techniques, accompanied by experiments that prove the hypothesis of an investigation.
  • The Technical Articles present novel applications, practical experiences, and technical challenges making use of a certain scientific basis.


  • The articles sent to the scientific track must be written in English.
  • The articles sent to the technical track may be written in English or Spanish.


The review procedure is double blind. Therefore, the documents sent for review should not contain the names of the authors, nor the affiliations or any information that may reveal their identity (this information will be delivered with the final version of the manuscript that will be published after its acceptance). In the version sent for review, avoid explicit automatic references that could suggest the name of the authors of the submitted manuscript.


Once an article is accepted, the author will only have the opportunity to improve it by taking the comments / suggestions of the reviewers. The only changes that may be made are those that are requested by the reviewers.


Sending the manuscript means that, if it is accepted for publication, at least one author will register at the conference and present the work. As a result, a full registration fee must be paid for each attendee / exhibitor.
