IEEE Colombian Conference on Communications and Computing 2019

Call for papers – IEEE ColCom 2019

IEEE has chosen Barranquilla as the venue for the 12th IEEE Colombian Conference on Communications and Computing COLCOM 2019. This conference is the most important in Colombia that aims to show the progress and development of the academic, scientific and industrial usage of the different areas of telecommunications and computing. In this version, the main subject is “Internet of Everything”.

During the past decade, the city has gained national and international recognition for its potential to become one of the most important cities in Latin America and the Caribbean in terms of logistics, manufacturing and creative industry. Barranquilla, main city of the Caribbean 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.

We hope that both local academy and industry will take active participation in IEEE COLCOM 2019. Papers will be reviewed by an international technical committee under the IEEE standard procedure. Accepted papers must be presented in oral sessions, this is mandatory to be published in the conference proceedings (IEEE Xplore database, including ISBN).
