The IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications, LATINCOM, will be held in
Medellin, Colombia, from November 6th to 8th 2024, at the University Research
Headquarters (SIU by its acronym in Spanish) of Universidad de Antioquia.

The IEEE LATINCOM is an international conference organized by the IEEE
Communications Society (ComSoc) Latin America Region. IEEE LATINCOM is the most
important conference on communications in Latin America; it is held annually and
attracts submissions and participants from all around the world.

LATINCOM 2024 will include original full-paper presentations and tutorial
sessions. It will also include Keynote Speeches presented by top researchers,
industry panel sessions and complementary activities that will be of high
interest to the attendees.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE LATINCOM 2024
Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other
Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
