Event Menu


The Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics Conference in Latin America (PRIME-LA) is a conference where Ph.D. students and post-docs with less than one-year of post-Ph.D. experience can present their research results and network with experts from industry, academia, and research.

PRIME-LA opens a forum for doctoral students and postdocs working in the fields of microelectronics and electronics to present their research work in front of a savvy and critical audience and to help them garner insight and depth to further expand their work. Moreover, through this exposure terminal students can broker research opportunities with other well-established research groups and institutions.

The 6th edition will take place in the fascinating volcanic mountain slopes of Quito, the first UNESCO World Heritage site.

PRIME-LA is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) and all accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEEXplore. Papers must not exceed four pages in length and must be written using the IEEE template.

The main objectives of PRIME-LA are:

  • To encourage favorable exposure to Ph.D. students in the early stages of their careers.
  • To benchmark Ph.D. research in a friendly and cooperative environment.
  • To enable sharing of student and supervisor experiences of scientific and engineering research.
  • To connect Ph.D. students and their supervisors with companies and research centers.

The conference will cover technical novelties and tutorial overviews on circuits and systems topics, including but not limited to:

  • Analog, Digital, and Mixed-Mode Circuits • Biomedical Electronics
  • Communications/RF Circuits
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Electronic Design Automation 
  • VLSI Systems and Applications 
  • FPGA Design and Applications 
  • Circuit Testing
  • Fault-Tolerant Circuits

Social Activities:
Besides the technical program, a very entertaining social program is planned. Special optional tours and tourist attractions such as the Galapagos Islands will be available to Symposium attendees and their guests.

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission deadline: 18 September 2022
  • Notification of acceptance: 14 November 2022
  • Camera-ready: 25 November 2022
