Welcome to the IEEE Latin America Transactions, an IEEE electronic periodical that is being published in Spanish and Portuguese by IEEE Region 9.

The launching of the project has been celebrated worldwide within and outside IEEE and many papers are been submitted. This periodical does not pretend to compete with the traditional IEEE publications in English. It assumes there are first class works in Spanish or Portuguese that are not finding their way through them and that can be shared through this new periodical.

We are aiming at publishing the best contributions, so that prestigious engineers are collaborating in specialized editorial committees. They have worked to select the papers that are being offered though the publication.

We publicly thank Dr. Antonio Jardini and his team for the hard volunteer work that is ensuring the success of this initiative.

We invite you to continue sending your contributions. The Transactions are included in IEEEXplore ISSN: 1548-0992
