May saw the celebration of two interesting on-site seminars where various professionals, experts in their field, shared with participants the latest trends in the impact of mobiles on journalism and cybersecurity. 
 

UOC-Con 2017 chronicle: Blockchain and cognitive security 

The congress is part of the activities of the IBM-UOC Chair in Cybersecurity and the Joint University Master's Degree in Information and Communication Technology Security offered by the UOC, UAB and URV.

UOC-Con has been created with the aim of fostering the exchange of knowledge between the members of the security community, with special attention to students of information security-related specializations in the broadest interpretation of the field. We aim to be an annual meeting place where students, postgraduate students and master's degree students can highlight their research work among recognized and proven security professionals, and where they can share their knowledge.

MoJoBCN 2017 seminar chronicle 

The aim of the 1st MoJoBCN seminar is to explore the integration process of mobile phones in Spanish journalism, in order to become a meeting place for professionals and academics. A place to discover the latest trends and innovations in mobile journalism, share professional experiences and become a framework for reflection for research and experimentation.

The mobile phone has changed our lives, our way of accessing information and how we communicate, as well as how news is disseminated, driven by social media. Spain is one of the countries with the greatest mobile phone penetration, but little by little, it has also become part of news offices worldwide. Consequently, it has become an essential work tool for the MoJo journalist, ie those working in mobile journalism. It can be used to experience new narratives, cut costs and disseminate content immediately. The addition of the mobile phone to journalism creates new challenges which are constantly being renewed and redefined.
