The 5th IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications (IEEE LATINCOM 2013) will be held in Santiago, Chile on 24-26 November 2013. Santiago is a modern metropolis, and the cultural, political, and financial center of Chile. It is also home to the regional headquarters of many multinational corporations, and it has been the venue of important international summits and meetings. The landscape is dominated by modern buildings and the imposing Andes mountains.
