The congress is addressed as a public to research staff and companies. In addition, it has been considered the attendance of university students (Information and Documentation, ADE, Statistics, Information Technology), since it may be of interest for this profile to know an area of research and work unknown but emerging and with a future. That is why it has been considered that, even if there are going to be high lecturers, the registration is free, because the students, despite the incipient recovery, are sensitive to the consequences of the economic crisis and a registration fee, even if it is minimal, it can dissuade people from attending.
