Publications & Awards


The Organizing Committee undertakes to give the widest dissemination to the works presented at LACSC 2021 so that they are not confined to the Conference’s attendees but represent a contribution to knowledge and a way for the authors to be known in the Latin American community of Statistical Computing.

This will be done through:

  1. Book of abstracts in digital format.
  1. Book of proceeding with ISBN in digital format for authors who send a full paper. Authors will own the copyright of their work.
  1. Selected peer-reviewed papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of Computational Statistics (Springer).
  1. Authors are encouraged to submit their paper to the official journal of IASC Computational Statistics & Data Analysis (Elsevier).


Young researchers (up to 5 years after their last academic degree) attending the 5th LACSC will have the possibility to compete for the “Best LACSC 2021 Paper Award”. To be considered for the award, the young researcher must:

+ Have completed an academic degree within the previous 5 years prior to LACSC 2021;

+ Be a member of the International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC);

+ Having sent an abstract for a contributed talk or being part of an Invited Paper Session of LACSC 2021 through the conference submission system.

The paper must deal with novel and interesting contributions to the theory and methodology, or the innovative use of statistical methods to address a substantive application, in Statistical Computing and related fields. The paper must be an unpublished, original work that is prepared mainly by a young researcher. Although it may have co-authors, the paper should be presented by the candidate at LACSC 2021
