About LAMC

The IEEE MTT-S Administrative Committee approved an initiative to create the IEEE MTT-S Latin America Microwave Conference (LAMC), to be held in the second week of December, every two years, starting in 2016. LAMC has a general scope on RF and microwave engineering and technologies and aims to achieve a high level of technical quality. LAMC moves to different locations in the region (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, etc.) and is technically and financially sponsored by IEEE MTT-S. LAMC is a biannual conference: the prior editions took place in Puerto Vallarta, México (2016), Arequipa, Peru (2018), Cali, Colombia (2021, virtual), San Jose, Costa Rica (2023) and now in San Juan, Puerto Rico (2025)

The IEEE MTT-S Latin America Microwave Conference has the following general goals:

  • To encourage technological, scientific, and academic development in Latin American countries
  • To promote participation in global MTT-S events
  • To encourage the development of local MTT-S activities
  • To increase MTT-S membership in Latin America
  • To increase local interest and perception of the relevance of MTT-S with respect to local needs (cf. MTT-S Humanitarian Initiative)
