About

LASCAS 2020

LASCAS is the flagship conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in Latin America. Since its first edition in 2010, LASCAS provides a high-quality exchange and networking forum for researchers, professionals, and students, gathering an international audience with experts from all over the world. This event is a space where the CAS community can present new concepts and innovative approaches, learn about new trends and solutions, and receive feedback from specialists in diverse fields.

The 11th edition will take place in San José, the capital of Costa Rica.

PRIME-LA

PRIME-LA 2020

The 3rd Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics Conference in Latin America (PRIME-LA) is a conference where Ph.D. students and post-docs with less than one-year post-PhD experience can present their research results and network with experts from industry, academia, and research.


PRIME-LA opens a forum for doctoral students and post-docs working in the fields of microelectronics and electronics in general, to present their research work in front of an experienced and critical audience, to help them garner insight and depth to further and expand their work. Moreover, through this exposure terminal students can broker research opportunities with other well-established research groups and institutions.


PRIME-LA 2018 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE CASS, and all accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore.
