IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications
18-20 November 2020 // Virtual Conference



Since IEEE LATINCOM 2020 will be held as a virtual event, the Organizing Committee is working towards guaranteeing the lowest possible registration fees. Registration fees will be as follows:

Full Non Author Member, ComSoc 100 USD
Full Non Author Member, IEEE 120 USD
Full Non Author Non Member 170 USD
Full Author Member, ComSoc 150 USD
Full Author Member, IEEE 185 USD
Full Author Non Member 285 USD


Student Attendance and Student Travel Grants

Non author ComSoc Student Members and IEEE Life Members will be allowed to attend IEEE LATINCOM 2020 for free.

Moreover, IEEE Communications Society is kindly offering a limited number of Student Travel Grants (STG) to support full-time students for attending IEEE LatinCom 2020 as authors. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the STG purpose has been modified since no travel is considered, and the criteria have been updated. Consequently, STGs can be used for reimbursing the registration fee at full rate of the student when registering to the conference as an author. To be eligible for IEEE ComSoc STG grants, the applicant must be a Student Member of IEEE ComSoc (bear in mind that being IEEE Student Member alone does not make an applicant eligible). Besides, the applicant may not receive more than one STG in any 12-month period. Each IEEE sponsored grant is up to US$100 but no more than the actual registration fee.

Applicant Eligibility

  1. Each applicant must be a Student Member or Graduate Student Member of the IEEE Communications Society at the time he/she applies for the grant;
  2. Each applicant must be a co-author of an accepted paper in IEEE LATINCOM 2020 and present it at the virtual conference;
  3. Each applicant must be a full-time student registered toward a Bachelor, Masters, or PhD degree in computer science, engineering or related field in a college or university when submitting the application;
  4. During the expense reimbursement stage, the student applicant must show the proof of having registered to attend IEEE LATINCOM 2020 as an author.

A student who is awarded a student travel grant must register, attend and present the paper at the virtual conference. Payment will only be made to grant recipients who submit the expense report within 45 days after the conference. More details will be provided to the students who are selected to receive a ComSoc Student Travel Grant.
