byebye404-laccei-2018

Computer scientists from BYE BYE 404 and the University of the Llanos presented two research papers at the Latin American and Caribbean Conference for Engineering and Technology in Peru.

From 18 until 20 July 2018, Maximiliano Cárdenas and Emiraldo Lozano presented two academic papers in the field of software engineering and information retrieval at the 16th LACCEI International Multi-Conference for Engineering, Education, and Technology “Innovation in Education and Inclusion”. Scientists and practitioners from the entire continent enriched the venue with their presence.

Adriana Páez Pino (Sergio Arboleda University) and María Mercedes Larrondo Petrie (Florida Atlantic University) were the General Conference Chair. Humberto Álvarez (Technological University of Panama), Luis Felipe Zapata Rivera (Florida Atlantic University), and Zaida Jova Aguila (Salesian University Center of Sao Paulo) were the Full Papers-, Work in Progress-, and Student Papers- Chairs respectively.

It was amazing! I enjoyed to take part in this research project. I learned a lot, practiced with leading technologies, and visited a new country. It was perfect.” says Maximiliano Cárdenas, first author of one of the papers.

I really recommend this experience to future students. It comprises both technical and soft skills development in a reasonable time. Now I feel comfortable to face technical challenges at international level.” adds Emiraldo Lozano, first author of the other paper.

It is exciting to see how these young men arrive as interns and end up as speakers at international events, we are very proud of their achievements and do our best to keep promoting academic and professional excellence in our teams.” summarises Javier Enciso co-author of both studies.

Finally, academic validation [1] plays an important role in the product development cycle. First, it prevents common mistakes by taking into account the comments from pairs around the globe. Second, it enables to share the latest developments with the community. Certainly, this a win-win situation.

papers-laccei-2018

Two scientific papers by students from the University of the Llanos were accepted to the Latin American and Caribbean Conference for Engineering and Technology (LACCEI). In this year, the conference takes place in Lima, Peru, from July 18 to 20.

Maximiliano Cárdenas is the lead author of the paper titled A Scalable End- to-end Web Application to Fix Broken Hyperlinks. “It was a very interesting experience. I was able to interact with skilled professionals to solve complex issues using infrastructure as a service.” says Maximiliano.

Emiraldo Lozano is the lead author of the paper titled A Multi-strategy Recommendation Algorithm to Retrieve Broken Hyperlinks. “For me it was a challenge. To learn quickly new concepts on machine learning and apply them into a production system was a transforming experience. I highly recommend working on internships in startups.” adds Emiraldo.

Roger Calderón, director of the Software Engineering specialization program at the University of the Llanos also took part in this investigation. “Students from the undergraduate program in computer systems engineering are able to produce international level academic papers and we are very happy to see the results.” concludes Roger.

Previously, Maximiliano and Emiraldo presented their work at VillaDevs, a technical forum to discuss topics on emerging technologies.
