The annual IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference, better known as EDUCON, has become an important meeting point for professors, researchers and other professionals, offering attendees an interesting forum for exchange and collaborate on engineering teaching and learning around the world. Sponsored by IEEE Education Society, it's the largest reference in education in the IEEE 8 Region (Europe, Middle East and North Africa). An appointment that this time has been set on a spanish landscape: Canary Islands. La Universidad de La Laguna, la Universidad de Vigo y la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) collaborate in its organization.
