LACCEI 2024 will be held in in person at Crowne Plaza San Jose and virtually through Agora Meetings Platform.

What is The OAS Summit of Engineering for the Americas?

LACCEI was selected by the Organization of American States (OAS) in 2005 to be part of the Engineering for the Americas (EftA) action plan to advance the accreditation and quality assurance of engineering programs in the Americas. As of 2016, the OAS officially established “The OAS Engineering Summit for the Americas” to coincide with the LACCEI International Multiconference and designated our organization as the OAS “Engineering Center of Excellence for the Americas”, an important credential that allows LACCEI to strengthen the quality of education in Engineering, Academic Leadership and Student Competitions.

What is LACCEI?

LACCEI (Latin American and Caribbean Consortium of Engineering Institutions), is a non-profit entity made up of institutions that offer programs in engineering, computing, technology or education and that participate in an academic or investigative manner with other institutions at an international level. Its purpose is promoting global collaboration for the continuous advancement of engineering, technology, education, research, practice and innovation, and connecting Latin America and the Caribbean with the rest of the world. Today we have more than 250 participating institutions from 26 countries in 3 continents and for the last 22 years we have been holding an annual multilingual academic multiconference that accepts scientific articles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.


The LACCEI conference accepts unpublished papers written in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. All accepted and presented papers are published in the proceedings with ISSN, ISBN. Full papers (FP) undergo double-blind review, and if accepted and presented, are published with DOI, and processed for evaluation by Scopus and other indexes. While Work in Progress (WP) submissions undergo single-blind review, are presented as posters and published in the conference proceedings, and the WP are not indexed in Scopus. Submissions to the Student Paper (SP) competition undergo single-blind review. The top 10 finalists compete in a technical presentation and are published with DOI and submitted for indexation. The winner receives an all expense paid trip and registration to compete in the global competition. 2024 LACCEI Active member Institutions receive registration benefits. Starting this year, LACCEI will internally classify FP into 4 categories: review paper, data research, software paper, and general research. There is a limit of 3 papers per author (includes co-author) and 7 authors per paper.
