The series of "Ada Lovelace Seminar [EPS-UAM]" is an initiative of the Polytechnic School of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, which aims to raise awareness of the contributions of female researchers in Information Technology and Communications (ICT).
This year, to mark the bicentenary of Ada Byron Lovelace, regarded as the first programmer in history, we hold a symposium in her honor, in which both her role in the history of computing and her current relevance as a scientific, technologist and maker will be addressed.

The "flipped classroom" model is being increasingly used in recent years, due to fact that producing video lectures is very easy today. This model promotes the viewing of video lectures at home or elsewhere by the student, rather than live in class, and uses the class time where the professor cannot be easily replaced by technology, namely for discussion, solving questions, and doing exercises. In this seminar, we are going to learn about three interesting experiences recently carried out in universities.
- 11:00-11:45: The flipped classroom model at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. Vicent Botti, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia.
- 11:45-12:30: Lectures recording and flipped classroom. Martín Llamas, Universidad de Vigo.
- 12:30-13:15: Flipping with ClipIt. Estefanía Martín, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.
On 7 July a meeting of the IEEE Education Society Spanish Chapter will be held at the Paraninfo of the Rector in the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
On this occasion, we will have the opportunity to know some details of the changes on the evaluation of teachers by Demetrio Castro, Coordinator of Teacher Evaluation of the ANECA, and will also have Rob Reilly, MIT & IEEE Division VI Director.

As part of the Research Seminars in Computer Science and Telecommunications of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, next March 25th at 16h, Dr. José Alberto Pino, University of Chile, will present Evaluation of collaborative systems.
The presentation will cover the challenges and needs involved in the evaluation of Collaborative Systems. A clarification will be made concerning the corresponding techniques, methods, tools, outcomes, stakeholders. Then, an evaluation framework will be presented. This framework structures the way to proceed in practical cases, starting from the context of the evaluation. A review of the most interesting techniques will also be discussed. The presentation should be useful to students wishing to evaluate groupware at any stage of development.
The eMadrid network is present once again with a special session at EDUCON (IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference). EDUCON will be held this year from March 18 to 20 in Tallinn (Estonia). The eMadrid special session is entitled "Mixing and Blending MOOC Technologies with Face-to-Face Pedagogies", in which members of eMadrid universities will present different studies around this common theme.
