Home

The 13th Latin American Theoretical INformatics Symposium (LATIN 2018) will be held in Buenos Aires from 16th to 19th April, 2018. Previous editions of LATIN took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil (1992), Valparaiso, Chile (1995), Campinas, Brazil (1998), Punta del Este, Uruguay (2000), Cancun, Mexico (2002), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2004), Valdivia, Chile (2006), Buzios, Brazil (2008), Oaxaca, Mexico (2010), Arequipa, Peru (2012), Montevideo, Uruguay (2014) and Ensenada, Mexico (2016).

The Symposium is devoted to different areas in theoretical computer science, including, but not limited to: algorithms (approximation, online, randomized, algorithmic game theory, etc.), analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms, automata theory and formal languages, coding theory and data compression, combinatorial algorithms, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics and graph theory, complexity theory, computational algebra, computational biology, computational geometry, computational number theory, cryptology, databases and information retrieval, data structures, formal methods and security, Internet and the web, parallel and distributed computing, pattern matching, programming language theory, and random structures.

LATIN is devoted to different areas in theoretical computer science including, but not limited to: algorithms (approximation, online, randomized, algorithmic game theory, etc.), analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms, automata theory and formal languages, coding theory and data compression, combinatorial algorithms, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics and graph theory, complexity theory, computational algebra, computational biology, computational geometry, computational number theory, cryptology, databases and information retrieval, data structures, formal methods and security, Internet and the web, parallel and distributed computing, pattern matching, programming language theory, and random structures.

Submission

Full papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=latin2018.
Submissions are limited to twelve (12) single-column letter-size pages in Springer LNCS format (see LNCS author guidelines at http://www.springer.com/la/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines).
This limit includes figures and references. An optional appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion) may be included if desired. Simultaneous submission of papers to any other conference with published proceedings, as well as the submission of previously published papers, is not allowed. Papers must be written in English. For each accepted paper at least one author must register and attend the symposium to present it. Moreover, an author cannot register for multiple papers. That is, each accepted paper must have its own registrant.

Proceedings

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of LATIN, which will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (http://www.springer.com/la/computer-science/lncs).

Local information

Weather

In April it is Autumn in Buenos Aires. Temperature might be between 13°C and 22°C. It is rather humid and it may rain.

Money

The current exchange rate is approx. 18 argentine pesos ($) for one U.S. dollar (USD). There are money exchange agencies at the international airport and in many places around the city, especially in the downtown area. Cash machines and ATM are available everywhere around the city. Purchases with credit card are usual, but it is advisable to check with your bank if your card is active in Argentina. In a few stores U.S. dollars may be accepted.

Bus (Colectivo)

The bus fare (6.5 peso) must be paid aboard, using the SUBE travel card. It can be obtained in the Tourist Assistance Centers.

Taxi

They have a taximeter (which establishes the fare in pesos), so no pre-negotiation on the fare is required. Up to four passengers may share a taxi.

From/to the airport

From Ezeiza International Airport, you have two options to get to downtown. You can take a taxi in one of the official stands. Up to four passengers may share a taxi. Another good option is to take the Manuel Tienda Leon bus to Aeroparque if you are staying in Palermo, Recoleta o Belgrano, or to Terminal Madero if you are staying in downtown (all prices are stated in Argentinean pesos). Then take a taxi to your housing destination. For a detailed map of Buenos Aires please refer to mapa.buenosaires.gov.ar.
