The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is hosting the T3chFest 2024 Computer Science and New Technologies Fair, which will take place on the 14th and 15th of March in the Auditorium on the Leganés campus.

T3chFest is a non-profit festival for new technologies, aimed at students (with free admission) and professionals in the sector. The aim is to promote interest in technology and to raise awareness of the development and application of the latest trends in the sector. “We voluntarily dedicate a large part of our time to shaping the event, selecting the talks and disseminating science and technology in networks. We believe that T3chFest is the place where university and business come together, and we're doing everything we can to make it happen,” say the organisers.

The opening talk will take place on Thursday the 14th at 9am, given by Manuel Gimeno and Adela Pérez, director of parametric engineering and head of parametric architecture at SACO Technologies. In this talk they will explain how, from a company in Zaragoza, they work on architectural projects through programming to make large installations possible, such as the video facade of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper, located in Dubai, or the Sphere building in Las Vegas.

The talk programme includes speakers from UC3M, research staff and alumni, who will talk about their research on topics such as the development of a new treatment of quantum games to implement in a video game; the design of personalised treatments for patients through augmented reality and 3D printing; cybersecurity applied to the video game Minecraft; advances in GPS navigation for air and space vehicles; and artificial intelligence. 

During the two days there will also be an exhibitors’ area with capacity for more than 20 companies. This space is sponsored by firms such as UC3 Foundation, Repsol, Nextdigital, Sngular and Okta, among others. In addition to showcasing new technologies, companies will take advantage of the event to recruit talent and evaluate the CVs of those interested in working or doing internships with them.

On Monday the 11th of March, T3chFest Ed Day will also be held, a day aimed at students in their final years of secondary education or studying technology-based A-Levels. The aim is for them to learn about the impact that technology and engineering have on our daily lives and on society. This insight into technology will be carried out through talks and practical workshops on scientific-technological outreach taught by UC3M research staff and alumni.
