The 9th Latin-American Conference on Communications (LATINCOM 2017) will be held in Guatemala City on 8th – 10th November 2017. 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).
Guatemala City serves as the economic, governmental, and cultural epicenter of the nation of Guatemala. The city also functions as Guatemala’s main transportation hub, hosting an international airport, La Aurora International Airport, and serving as the origination or end points for most of Guatemala’s major highways. The city, with its robust economy, attracts hundreds of thousands of rural migrants from Guatemala’s interior hinterlands and serves as the main entry point for most foreign immigrants seeking to settle in Guatemala.
In addition to a wide variety of restaurants, hotels, shops, and a modern BRT transport system (Transmetro), the city is home to many art galleries, theaters, sports venues and museums (including some fine collections of Pre-Columbian art) and provides a growing number of cultural offerings. Guatemala City not only possesses a history and culture unique to the Central American region, it also furnishes all the modern amenities of a world class city. Furthermore, among the most visited touristic locations are La Antigua Guatemala (a colonial city and previous capital of Guatemala), Atitlán Lake and Mayan Ruins of Tikal and El Mirador.
