LASCAS is the international symposium and flagship event of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in Latin America. Its seventh edition will take place on Ingleses Beach, Florianopolis, Brazil.
The city of Florianopolis, a.k.a. the magic island, is located mainly on the island of Santa Catarina. Florianopolis has also a continental part and surrounding small islands. With a population of around 500,000 people, the city is known for having a very high quality of life. The island is a delicious slice of paradise with over 520 km2 (200 sq mi) of green hills, blue lagoons and 42 white sand beaches. The fishing boats, the lace makers, the folklore, the cuisine and the colonial architecture contribute to tourism. The economy of Florianopolis is heavily based on information technology, tourism and services.
Florianopolis is home to the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), one of the largest in Brazil, with over 34,500 students. During the symposium, the temperature is expected to be in the range 22 °C - 31 °C.
Proceedings will be published by IEEE and will be available at IEEE Xplore. Best Papers will be invited to a special edition of the Springer Journal on Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing.

The LASCAS 2016 Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day tutorials to be conducted on February 28, 2016, the first day of LASCAS 2016, held at Florianopolis, Brazil.
Tutorials are an integral function of LASCAS where instructors have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific field/research with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover said field/research. We are soliciting proposals for topics of academic and industrial/application(s) interests. These topics may be established or it may be emerging - and with profound and/or new insights thereto, that is best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Most importantly, tutorials should be interesting with lively interaction with the attendees.
Proposals, prepared in a one-column PDF file, should include the following information:
- Title of the tutorial
- Area of the tutorial (refer to the list above)
- 300 Word Abstract (for inclusion in registration materials)
- Instructor(s) and their credentials (2-page CV for each instructor)
- Previous offerings of tutorials, if any
- Learning objectives
- Target audience and prerequisite knowledge of audience
- Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)
Tutorial proposals due:
24 October 2015 31 October 2015.
Notification of acceptance: December 5, 2015
Complete Set of Tutorial Slides: December 21, 2015
Please see LASCAS'2016 CFT.
The VII IEEE Latin American Symposium on Circuits and Systems (LASCAS) 2016 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the circuits and systems community that may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at LASCAS. Each session comprises 5 oral presentations of 15 minutes each (plus 5 minutes of questions). The first paper in a Special Session may serve as an introduction to the field, aimed at outsiders.
Prospective organizers of Special Sessions Proposals should submit the following including:
- Title of the session.
- Rationale of the need for the Special Session at IWS. The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and its multidisciplinary flavor (if any).
- Short biography of the organizers.
- List of at least four (4), or at most five (5), contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution). Organizers should not contribute more than two papers.
- Preliminary full version of the overview paper (four-page paper).
- Submission of Special Sessions Proposal:
24 October 2015 31 October 2015.
- Submission of full four-page manuscripts for Special Sessions: 31 October 2015
- Notification of paper acceptance: 5 December 2015
- Deadline for submission of final papers: 21 December 2015
Special Session proposals (including the overview paper) should be sent via e-mail (in either PDF or plain ASCII text format) to the Special Session chairs, Hector Pettenghi (hector AT eel.ufsc.br) and Gloria Huertas (Gloria AT us.es) by the October 31, 2015 deadline. Four-paper manuscripts should be submitted via Easy Chair as regular papers by the October 31, 2015 deadline.
Full four-page manuscripts submitted to the special sessions should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular LASCAS papers. Papers will undergo the same review process as regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet LASCAS quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, fewer than four (4) papers are accepted, the session will be canceled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.
