LATIN 2024

March 18 – 22, 2024
Puerto Varas/Chile


The LATIN 2024 conference will take place at the Hotel Cabaña del Lago, in the beautiful city of Puerto Varas in southern Chile, between March 18-22, 2024.


LATIN (Latin American Theoretical Informatics) was born in 1992, when a group of Latin American researchers, under the leadership of Imre Simon (São Paulo, Brazil), launched the first of a series of symposia in theoretical computer science, to be held triennially in Latin America. Since 1998 it has been held biennially: Valparaiso, Chile (1995); Campinas, Brazil (1998); Punta del Este, Uruguay (2000); Cancún, Mexico (2002); Buenos Aires, Argentina (2004); Valdivia, Chile (2006); Búzios, Brazil (2008); Oaxaca, Mexico (2010); Arequipa, Peru (2012); Montevideo, Uruguay (2014); Ensenada, Mexico (2016); Buenos Aires, Argentina (2018); São Paulo, Brazil (2020); Guanajuato, Mexico (2022).

Scope and topics

LATIN 2024 is devoted to different areas in theoretical computer science including, but not limited, to:

  • algorithmic game theory
  • approximation algorithms
  • analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms
  • automata theory and formal languages
  • combinatorial algorithms
  • combinatorial optimization
  • combinatorics and graph theory
  • complexity theory
  • computational geometry
  • computational social choice
  • data structures
  • distributed computing
  • fixed-parameter algorithms, including FPT-approximation algorithms
  • foundations of data science and theoretical machine learning
  • online algorithms
  • quantum computing
  • randomized algorithms



LATIN 2024 will take place in the beautiful city of Puerto Varas, located in the South of Chile, in the Los Rios Region. It is known for the scenic views of Osorno Volcano and Lake Llanquihue, its location near popular tourist destinations like the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park, and its German colonial architecture. Puerto Varas is a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and skiing.

The conference will be hosted in the Hotel Cabaña del Lago, located directly at the Lake Llanquihue in Puerto Varas. It is in walking distance (approximately 15min) to the center of Puerto Varas.
