About

LASCAS is the international symposium and flagship event of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in Latin America. The conference provides a high-quality exchange and networking forum for researchers, professionals, and students, gathering an international audience with experts from all over the world. This event is a space where the CAS community can present new concepts and innovative approaches, learn about new trends and solutions, and receive feedback from specialists in diverse fields.

LASCAS thirteen edition will take place in Puerto Varas, Chile. Puerto varas is a city in Chile’s Lake District about 1,000km south from Santiago (1:45hr by flight). It sits on the southwest banks of the expansive Lake Llanquihue, which offers commanding views of snow-capped Osorno Volcano and Calbuco Volcano, both still active. Cerro Tronador an extinct stratovolcano is also clearly visible from the lakefront. The city also known as «the city of roses» is famous for its German traditions and its natural environment. It enjoys a scenic location close to mountains, lakes, forest, and national parks. Puerto Varas is the southernmost of a string of towns on the western shore of Llanquihue Lake that includes Frutillar, Llanquihue and Puerto Octay.

LASCAS thirteen edition will now take place in Santiago, Chile’s capital, and largest city. Santiago sits in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped Andes and the Chilean Coast Range captivating with its assorted panoramas and its versatility. In the city we find entertaining neighborhoods with vibrant nightlife, restaurants, designer shops and art galleries.
Plaza de Armas, is the grand heart of the city’s old colonial core and is home to 2 neoclassical landmarks: the 1808 Palacio de la Real Audiencia, housing the National History Museum, and the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral.
Large parks such as Parque Metropolitano, the capital city’s largest urban natural area is located in Cerro San Cristobal where we find the zoo, the Inmaculada Concepción Sanctuary wat the peak, the funicular railway and cable car to enjoy a panoramic view of the city, looking out from above.
Since its location is in a valley, it’s surrounded by mountains that offer attractive panoramas like visiting the ski resorts in winter, hiking, horseback riding and much more. Also because of its central location, Santiago allows you to be at the beach in only a few hours, so in one day you can see Valparaíso, Viña del Mar, and Isla Negra among other locations.
