___ 12th IEEE Latin America Symposium on Circuits and System



The 4th edition was planned to take place in Arequipa, Peru.
However, in the face of the complicated situation posed by COVID19, PRIME-LA 2021 will be a fully virtual edition. The Organizing Committee is working to make it a superb virtual event, with real-time interactions.

Papers should be presented following the IEEE Proceedings format: MSWord or Latex.

PRIME-LA New Deadlines

  • Paper Submission: October 1st, 2020 October 17th, 2020

  • Notification of acceptance: October 25th, 2020 November 6th, 2020

  • Camera-ready: November 10th, 2020 November 13th, 2020

In order to accommodate to the virtual format, the conference now will extend 1 day more, from Feb. 21 to Feb. 25


The PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics Conference in Latin America (PRIME-LA) is a conference where PhD students and post-docs with less than one-year post-PhD experience can present their research results and network with experts from industry, academia and research.
