Call For Papers 
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).

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.
