The JCC are a meeting point for the academia and the industry in computer science and informatics, to share experience, develop joint projects and develop these disciplines. The JCC, an activity sponsored by the SCCC, are the most important computer science event in Chile since 1993. The JCC includes several events: the International Conference of Computer Science, workshops (Databases, Software Engineering, Distributed Systems, Parallelism, among others), the Conference on Higher Education in Computer Science, the Chilean Computer Science Encounter and the South-American ACM Programming Championship. In addition, the JCC includes several tutorials and guest talks of mainstream researchers.
