After the nomination ceremony all participants of the session presented themselves to the audience before starting to work during an interactive session in thematic working groups, which pretended to set the basis for the national mapping of e-infrastructure in Mexico. The thematic topics were selected according to the existing communities already constituted by CUDI and were therefore designated to the following four principle thematic working tables during the interactive session:
- Health and Life Sciences
- Computer Sciences
- Education and e-government
Beside the detailed technical information asked during this session, it was above all very useful for the participants to know each other and as a sensibiliser to recognize the necessity of a national e-infrastructure map as a base to improve research and technological development in the field. Through the presence of key stakeholders in each working table, the exercise was also very useful to identify the experts able to supply the Council with specific information in order to complement the Mexican e-infrastructure map, which will now be the follow up work of this event and lead to the following sessions of the Council.
Mexican Task Force Members: Joel Ireta (UAM), Gilberto Romero Rios (SOFTTEK), Luis Pineda (REMIDEC, RED-TIC), Carmen Heras (AMCAV), Jesús Cruz (UNAM), Ricardo Velázquez (CINVESTAV), Carlos Patiño (Mexican Parliament), Miguel Gonzalez (ITESM), Rogelio Garza (CANIETI) and Carlos Casasús (President, CUDI)
