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.

ON-SITE REGISTRATION: You can pay cash at the conference place. If you plan to do this, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any question or doubt, please contact email@example.com.
After you register, please complete this form in order to choose your preferred excursion (which is included for those who pay the registration fee), and to inform us if you are willing to attend or give a talk in the LATIN Workshop on Theoretical Computer Science.
It will take place in Auditorio Alberto Williams (SALA 2), second floor.
The conference banquet is on Tuesday at 7pm (after the tour), at Rei Bar, Marcelo T. de Alvear 479, Retiro. Extra tickets may be purchased at the conference place.
|Entrance Viamonte street|
|Once you enter, you should see a flight of stairs in front of you|
|Go up these stairs and turn left: you should see another stairway going up|
|Go up these stairs and turn left again. Walk a short distance, and you will be now in front of the steps that lead to the room where the symposium will be held|
There is an elevator in the ground floor, to the left after entering the Centro Cultural Borges. Take this elevator to the second floor, and you will be in front of the room.
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.
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.
Full papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair
The Secretaria de Turismo has a very complete webpage that includes information about restaurants, different tour guides to visit Buenos Aires, cultural events, weather information, transportation to and from the airport, and much more!
There are several Information Centers providing tourists with maps, brochures, and any other useful information you might need:
