In Peru, telecommunications attracts the second largest capital foreign investment1, and in IberoAmerica it is a very dynamic area in constant progress. In our region, this has led to a rapid increase in demand for skilled jobs and a great interest in research and technological innovation in the area.
The Telecommunications Engineering School of the San Pablo Catholic University, with the direct collaboration of all members of the Technical Program Committee, IEEE Peru Section, and all its partners, is organizing the II National Conference on Telecommunications CONATEL 2011, with the aim of creating a common space to bring together researchers, professionals, students and entrepreneurs, with the purpose of promoting exchange of ideas and production of research.
This conference intends to become an international forum, with emphasis on regional interaction.
CONATEL 2011 will take place in the picturesque city of Arequipa, located in southern Peru, and known as the "White City" for its colonial buildings made of ashlar, and famous for its exquisite cuisine. The colonial center of this city was declared in the year 2000 as a Historical Heritage of Humanity, and houses the convent of Santa Catalina (the only one in the world made as a "citadel"). In Arequipa is located the Colca Canyon, the third deepest one in the world, which is only 165 km away from the city. This city is adjacent to Cusco, ancient capital of the Inca Empire, home of the famous citadel of Machu Picchu (one of the seven new wonders of the world).
