Main topics

The academic and scientific documents (papers) in Telework 2010, should be immediately related with the topics and themes of the Workshop.

Labor inclusion

Telework and training in ICT are considered an alternative for labor inclusion, since their flexibility and practicality for working and learning, make them more approachable to all kinds of people.
What kind of training in ICT should be implemented? How could telework contribute to labor inclusion? In which way could ICT collaborate? What role do universities and academies play? How can telework be adapted to handicapped people?*

Sustainable development

Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for future generations to come. There are three fundamental pillars that should be taken into account by society and enterprises:
- Economics: financial operation and capability to contribute to the economic development in the creation of different enterprises;
- Social: the social consequences of the enterprise’s activities. Enterprises should be considerate about the rights of their employees, clients, suppliers, local communities, etc, and always respect the laws and the worker’s rights, satisfying the basic needs.
- Environment: there should always be compatibility between the social activity of the enterprise and the preservation of biodiversity and ecosystems. This includes analyzing the impact of the enterprise’s social developments and its products have in the environment, always regulating the consumption of non-renewable resources, so as the generation of waste and gas emissions. This last pillar is vital to keep the other two stable.
How can we satisfy the needs of present generations without being detrimental to future generations? How could we improve technology and productive organization so that the environment recovers itself at the same rate that it is affected by human activities? What role could telework play in the implementation of sustainable development so as to avoid climate change? Are the ICT the solution to transportation and communication issues?*

New working relations

The  deep changes that are taking place in the working environment and, specially, in the job market, have given birth to new working relations, more flexible and approachable, like Teleworking.
Is working flexibility positive or negative? In which ways could the spreading of Teleworking be dynamized? Which legal aspects should be modified/added/strengthened to facilitate the working relations that allow the application of sustainable development? Which roles social actors play in this situation? How will the new ICT based productive organizations be? What impact does telework have in the globalized market? What impact does the wealth distribution have?*
