Welcome to 2016 IEEE COMSOC LATINCOM

The 8th Latin-American Conference on Communications (LATINCOM 2016) will be held in Medellin at the UPB (Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana), Colombia on 15th – 17th November 2016. The IEEE LATINCOM is the premier ComSoc organized in Latin America. It has attracted authors and attendees from the four corners of the world since its first editions. This event will be an excellent opportunity to join together researchers, professors, students and the industry. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore and besides a selection of the best papers will be published in the IEEE Latin America Transactions (an ISI indexed journal).

Medellin has the unique contrast of a vital and rapidly developing metropolis and vibrant nature, with spring like weather and an excellent tourism platform for congress, conferences, and general events. Between tradition and transformation it becomes a center for big business under innovation and entrepreneurship schemes. The city offers competitive costs and wellness, providing visitors with the best places for interaction of academic, professional, commercial, cultural, artistic, and social activities. Medellin was awarded the 2013 “Innovative City of the Year Award” in a contest run by the Wall Street Journal Magazine and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) for its implementation of sustainable innovation and a unique budgeting system.
