This session of the 2005 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit provides an overview of the computer science research agenda in Latin America, including discussion about the regional organization and existing collaborative programs. We review several projects as examples of successful research in this emerging region.

The number of science and engineering articles credited to Latin American organizational authors and published in the most recognized influential scientific and technical journals almost tripled between 1988 and 2001. This growth rate was greater than that of emerging and developing countries in other regions. The increase in the number of Latin American articles was concentrated in four countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico.

During this session, we take a look at specific research projects from Brazil and Chile.
