Venue (Virtual)


In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and after thoughtful discussions, the Board of Directors has decided to move our LACSC 2021 and LARS-IASC School to a fully online virtual experience.

We believe this is the safest approach for our global audience’s well-being, and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities.

Attendees will be able to participate virtually in vital conversations.  Networking is a cornerstone of our annual event; thus,  attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a new dynamic virtual conference platform, all while attendees connect from their home or office’s comfort and safety.

The School and Conference will be via Whova platform.

You will receive by email further information about the platform.

Mexico City is the oldest capital city in the Americas, originally built by the Aztecs on an island of Lake Texcoco, known as Tenochtitlan. Located in the Valley of Mexico, its population is 21.3 million, which makes it the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world. It has a subtropical highland climate due to its tropical location but high elevation.

It is one of the most important cultural and financial centres in the Americas. Having been the capital of a vast pre-Hispanic empire and the richest viceroyalty within the Spanish Empire, Mexico City has a rich history of artistic expression.

Mexico has many UNESCO World Heritage sites, including architecture, archaeological sites, colonial cities, and natural reserves. It has been ranked as the fourth most biodiverse county in the world. Besides, there is a rich and varied culinary tradition from corner to corner of the country.
