IEEE LATINCOM – Hackathon

IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications

11-13 November 2020, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Virtual Conference

Latin American countries are continuously facing diverse challenges in this century.  LATINCOM 2020 will have space where students and Young Professionals will give ideas to work on local problems in their countries with the help of their knowledge and skills in any Telecommunication fields.  They will learn best practices on how to prepare their proposal and related topics on project design.  

We want Latin America students and Young Professionals to be encouraged and apply for the next edition of the IEEE ComSoc Student Competition in 2021. Best project ideas will be awarded in this Hackathon in order they can be the first step on the implementation and application of their projects in the ComSoc Competition.  Ideas do not need to be already implemented but must be realistic projects that can be done in practice. 

IEEE ComSoc student members and Graduate Student members can attend Latincom 2020 program for free: https://latincom2020.ieee-latincom.org/registration/For more information and rules of the competition (updated Nov. 5, 2020):[ENG] Competition rules [ESP] Competition rules Spanish [POR] Competition rules Portuguese

Cognitive Approach to Building a Safe and Smart Cities/Societies

Layers of smartness—using technology and data—are being built into cities to make them safer, more efficient and sustainable. Developed cities around the world are actively launching smart solutions, while new and emerging cities are integrating intelligent, connected systems from the start. The big cities of today may not be those of tomorrow. The opportunities are immense—across infrastructure, mobility, energy, healthcare and beyond. Innovative technology applications and their adoption in society offer a turning point. At its core, the smart city is about people and improving the quality of our everyday lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed some of the shortcomings of major cities in times of crisis.

5G Networks

  • Course Program

5G is the next generation of radio systems and network architecture that delivers extreme broadband, ultra-robust, low latency connectivity, and massive networking for the Internet of Things. As LTE technology evolves toward 5G, it’s vital for technical professionals and industry leaders to understand how to deliver on the 5G vision and meet consumer demand for higher communication speeds. In this cutting-edge course program, produced in cooperation with Nokia, learners will receive an in-depth view of performance requirements, future scenarios, and the roadmap to implementation. The program also explores the intricacies of 5G standardization by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee.

These courses are designed for professionals working on 5G implementation, including service fulfillment personnel who will be supporting 5G, engineers and technical professionals with telecommunications backgrounds who want to expand their knowledge of 5G, and telecommunications leaders who are preparing their organizations and systems for the future.

This course program includes the following courses:

In partnership with IEEE Future Directions and the IEEE Future Networks Initiative (https://futurenetworks.ieee.org/)

Nokia

This course program is produced in cooperation with Nokia, a globally recognized leader in 5G. Nokia is working with both Communication Service Providers and leading industry players to realize the full potential of 5G.

IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee

The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE 802 LMSC) is a key contributor to this course program. The IEEE 802 LMSC develops, maintains, and advocates for networking standards, as well as recommended practices, on a global basis.
