Welcome! / Bienvenidos! / Bem-vindos!
“Dear colleagues and students, on behalf of the Chilean Chapter of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, I give you the warmest welcome to the 7th Latin American Conference on Computational Intelligence that will be held in the Universidad de LaFrontera, Temuco, Chile, from 2 to 5 November 2021. This year we will include a special topic on Ethical, Social and Environmental Implications of CI technology. As Chile is experiencing some social changes, it is our interest to strengthen some particularly local sensitive issues, especially with regard to gender equity and interculturality. For this reason, in addition to the Scientific usual topics, LACCI 2021 gathers these relevant issues, emphasizing the importance of the diversity of visions regarding the development of new technologies.”

“Since its inception, the local organizers of LA-CCI as well as the steering committee members have been taking lots of care to offer great conferences along the years. Thus, thematic sessions, schools, competitions, and discussions-panels are specially tailored for attracting and pleasing greater audiences. This self-imposed responsibility is deemed to gather scholars, government officials, students (the future of academia) and funding agencies to discuss science, institutional approaches, internationalization policies and funding mechanisms that could be fostering R&D in CI for Latin American Countries.”
Prof. Fernando Buarque de Lima Neto, DIC PhD – Universidade de Pernambuco, Brasil (Steering Committee Coordinator, LA-CCI Series)
