The LASCAS 2017 Organizing Committee invites proposals for “Live Demonstrations of Circuits and Systems” to be conducted during LASCAS.

Live demonstrations will take place on Tuesday 21st and will have a dedicated time block assigned.

This track offers the possibility for an interactive and tangible form of presentation, which is quite different from oral and poster sessions. The demonstrations will be conducted in presentation booths with ample space to set up a working system, may it be interactive software on a laptop, a hardware setup or even a robot. Conference attendees are invited to experience the demonstrations directly, to interact with, play with, and challenge them. Presenters have the opportunity to show direct proof of their working systems and to create a lasting impression in a session that is very well attended.
Demos may be submitted in the following two categories:

  • Proposals of live demonstrations based on already published work should submit a one page description of the demonstration, using the same page formatting as for regular LASCAS papers.

It is mandatory to include a reference to at least one earlier publicly accessible publication of this work.

  • Proposals based on new work for publication in LASCAS 2017 are required to submit an additional 4-page paper as a regular submission, which will be reviewed as a regular paper.

The one page demonstration description must contain the following information:
Demonstration title and author information. The title must begin with `Live Demonstration:’ and in case of simultaneous paper submission must then cite the title of the full paper.
Demonstration setup: Describe the equipment that you will bring to LASCAS.
Include a photograph and/or screenshot. Only a power plug and pin wall will be provided. Demonstrators are responsible for the transportation of their own equipment to the meeting site.
Indicate any special requirements such as for example extra space for demonstrating robotic movement or other requirements, which the organizers should be aware of.
Visitor experience: Explain the way in which a visitor experiences and interacts with your demonstration, how it reveals the essence of your work, furthers understanding, and what the visitor will learn.
For newly presented work this will be the track you choose for your 4-page paper and you must also indicate the paper submission identifier.
For Earlier publication include one or more citations referring to your work about the scientific background of your live demonstration. This reference must be publicly and easily accessible for the reviewers.

  • Submission of Live Demonstration proposals : December 9, 2016 .
  • Notification of acceptance: December 16, 2016

If You have a Working Demo accepted for the conference you will have a 50% discount on the Registration Fee.

The LASCAS 2017 Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day tutorials to be conducted on February 20, 2017, the first day of LASCAS 2017, held at Bariloche, Argentina.
Tutorials are an integral function of LASCAS where instructors have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific field/research with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover said field/research. We are soliciting proposals for topics of academic and industrial/application(s) interests. These topics may be established or it may be emerging - and with profound and/or new insights thereto, that is best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Most importantly, tutorials should be interesting with lively interaction with the attendees.
Proposals, prepared in a one-column PDF file, should include the following information:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Area of the tutorial (refer to the list above)
  • 300 Word Abstract (for inclusion in registration materials)
  • Keywords
  • Instructor(s) and their credentials (2-page CV for each instructor)
  • Previous offerings of tutorials, if any
  • Learning objectives
  • Target audience and prerequisite knowledge of audience
  • Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)

Important Dates:

  • Tutorial proposals: October 24, 2016. Extended! November 7, 2016
  • Notification of acceptance: December 5, 2016
  • Complete Set of Tutorial Slides: February 10, 2016

The VIII IEEE Latin American Symposium on Circuits and Systems (LASCAS) 2017 technical program will include Special Sessions.
Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the circuits and systems community that may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at LASCAS.
Each session comprises 4 oral presentations of 15 minutes each (plus 5 minutes of questions). The first paper in a Special Session may serve as an introduction to the field, aimed at outsiders.

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions Proposals should submit the following including:

  • Title of the session.
  • Rationale of the need for the Special Session at IWS. The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and its multidisciplinary flavor (if any).
  • Short biography of the organizers.
  • List of at least four (4), or at most five (5), contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution). Organizers should not contribute more than two papers.
  • Preliminary full version of the overview paper (four-page paper).

Important Dates:

  • Submission of Special Sessions Proposal: October 24, 2016. Extended! November 7, 2016
  • Notification of acceptance: December 5, 2016
  • Camara Ready: December 21, 2016

Please submit proposals by email to: Benjamin Reyes (mail:

Four-paper manuscripts should be submitted via Easy Chair as regular papers by the October 31, 2016 deadline.

Full four-page manuscripts submitted to the special sessions should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular LASCAS papers. Papers will undergo the same review process as regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet LASCAS quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, fewer than four (4) papers are accepted, the session will be canceled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.
