The 10th IEEE Colombian Conference on Communications and Computing – COLCOM2017 ‐ will be held in Cartagena. IEEE COLCOM2017 is the most important conference 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 "ICT for development". The Information and Communication Technologies ‐ ICT ‐ are considered to be the driving force behind the development of a country, allowing the reduction of the digital divide. To achieve this, it is needed to extend the coverage of access and transport networks, and to provide services and applications that bring technology to society. We encourage the submission of technical papers, especially on issues related to this topic. Papers will be reviewed by an international technical committee under the IEEE standard procedure. Accepted papers will be presented in oral sessions, as a requisite to be published in the conference proceedings (IEEE Xplore database, including ISBN).

The 3rd International IEEE Workshop on Power Electronics and Power Quality Applications will be held on May 31 to June 2, 2017, at Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia.
This biannual workshop provides a space for students, academics, and industry professionals to collaborate on meeting the ever-increasing power electronics and power quality challenges in the Latin America region. The workshop covers a range of topics, including power electronics (PE) converters, adjustable speed drives, PE in transmission and distribution, power quality (PQ) analysis, PQ design and modeling, and simulation & education in PE/PQ.

The objective of the Conference is to gather academic and industrial researchers and practitioners, to discuss the state of the art, research and developments in advance control-robotics and its applications for sharing and encouraging technology development in Colombia and the Latin American region. The thematic emphasis of the Conference will be covering the theory, the implementation issues and the experiences related to the applications of control, automation and robotics methods in research, academy and industry. The main topics for the event include, but are not limited to, the following:
Applied control for industrial and non-industrial areas, applied control for robots, hybrid systems, intelligent control, mechatronics, mobile robots, modeling of dynamic systems, multi-robot systems, process and power systems, process automation, process optimization, sensing and sensor fusion, system identification, systems and signals, control in power electronics and electrical drives.
PAPER SUBMISSION The program committee invites you to submit 4 to 6 pages long papers in either English or Spanish through http://www.ieeeccac2017.org All articles will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Only English versions will be published in IEEEXplore.
The IEEE Latin-American Test Symposium (LATS, previously Latin-American Test Workshop - LATW) is a recognized forum for test and fault tolerance professionals and technologists from all over the world, in particular from Latin America, to present and discuss various aspects of system, board, and component testing and fault-tolerance with design, manufacturing and field considerations in mind. Presented papers are also published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The best papers of the 18th LATS will be invited to re-submit to IEEE Design and Test of Computers, Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications - JETTA (Springer), Journal of Low Power Electronics - JOLPE (American Scientific Publishers), and IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design (TCAD).
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
-Analog Mixed Signal Test -Automatic Test Generation -Built-In Self-Test -Defect-Based Test -Design and Synthesis for Testability -Design for Electromagnetic Compatibility -Design for Reliable Embedded Software -Design Verification/Validation -Economics of Test -Fault Analysis and Diagnosis -Fault Modeling and Simulation -Fault-Tolerance in HW/SW -Fault-Tolerant Architectures -Memory Test and Repair -On-Line Testing -Process Control and Measurements -Radiation/EMI -Hardening Techniques -Software Fault-Tolerance -Software On-Line Testing -System-on-Chip Test -Test Resource Partitioning -Yield Optimization Hardware Security
Paper Submission Information:

Bogotá, Colombia‘s administrative and political capital, was founded in 1538 in the Bogotá savanna at 2.600 m of altitude. The city counts with the larger number of universities and research centers in the country; a rich set of museums such as the Gold Museum including more than 30.000 pieces of tumbaga gold, and the Botero Museum showing more than 100 artworks made by the known artist; in addition, the city offers a great variety of restaurants, pubs, discos, shopping malls and coffee shops to delight its visitors. As an important business hub to Latin America, the city is today recognized as an important and emerging business centre, and was included in the BestCities Global Alliance.
