Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, IEEE MTT-S has approved changing the original dates of LAMC 2020, now celebrating it in May 26-28, 2021, now in a virtual format, due to the evolution of pandemic and delays in vaccination process. IEEE MTT-S reconfirmed Cali, Colombia, as the virtual venue for the 3rd IEEE MTT-S Latin America Microwave Conference (now LAMC 2021). During the past decade, Cali has gained national and international recognition for its potential to become one of the most important cities in Latin America and the Pacific in terms of logistics, manufacturing and creative industry. Cali, main city of the Pacific region of Colombia, known as a commercial, service and cultural hub, offers a vivid and dynamic environment for creation of innovative solutions, a wide variety of economic sectors, including both small and large companies as well as agricultural industry, a growing ICT ecosystem and high-quality universities. Looking for synergy, LAMC 2021 will be co-located with IEEE Colcom 2021 (IEEE Colombian Conference on Communications and Computing). We encourage the submission of original, unpublished research focused on (but not limited to) the following topics of interest:

Passive components, circuits and devices (planar and nonplanar components and circuits, filters and multiplexers, tunable devices, and metamaterials).Active components and measurements systems (RFICs & MMIC design, power amplifiers, linearization techniques, low-noise circuits, signal generation, conversion & control modules, linear and non-linear modeling and characterization).RF systems and applications (microwave systems and front-ends industrial scientific and medical applications, navigation systems, intelligent transportation systems, imaging, sensors, wireless power transmission).Communication systems (terrestrial, vehicular, satellite and indoor applications, wireless and cellular communication systems).Active antennas (phase arrays, integrated antennas, smart antennas, digital-beam forming and MIMO).Signal-power integrity and high-speed digital techniques (EM interference and compatibility, high speed interconnects, post-silicon validation techniques, power delivery networks, computer simulations and measurements).CAD techniques for RF and microware engineering (surrogate –based modeling and optimization, space mapping-based methods, model order reduction techniques, statistical analysis and design, EM based and multi physics design optimization, EM field theory, time and frequency-domain numerical techniques).

Paper Submission

Papers submitted to LAMC 2021 will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, quantitative contents, clarity, and interest to the audience. The review process will be single-blind. LAMC will use EDAS as the electronic paper management system. All accepted and presented papers will be published in the LAMC Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. English will be the official language of the conference. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit a three-page two-column manuscript (maximum 4 pages, with a charge per additional page of US$100), using the IEEE Conferences template, whic can be found in:

R9 GRADUATE Initiative

The IEEE MTT-S Education Committee recently approved, during the MTT-S AdCom meetings, the implementation of a Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative to encourage the participation of graduate students from Latin America in LAMC-2021. The Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative is restricted to provide financial support to attend LAMC only to Graduate students officially registered in a master or doctoral program offered by a university or research institute located in Latin America. Applicants for this R9 Graduate Initiative must submitt your documents only until March 15, 2021.

The selection committee of the 2018 Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative will apply the following priority criteria:

1.      Graduate students who are first authors of a LAMC paper accepted for oral presentation.

2.      Graduate students who are first authors of a LAMC paper accepted for poster presentation.

3.      Graduate students who are co-authors of a LAMC paper accepted for oral presentation.

4.      Graduate students who are co-authors of a LAMC paper accepted for poster presentation.

5.      Graduate students who are registered to a LAMC Workshop.

6.      Graduate students who are just attending LAMC.

If you want to apply for this R9 Initiative, please download and complete the template and then please mail it to the evaluation committee cc to:
