The Latin American Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (JIISIC, after its Spanish acronym) has been an international meeting of scientists, technicians and professionals devoted to Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering study and research since its first issue in 2001. Its main purpose is to promote contact, scientific and professional cooperation, and technology transfer within Latin America.

Since its first issue in Buenos Aires (Argentina), and throughout those in Salvador Bahia (Brazil), Valdivia (Chile), Madrid (Spain) and Puebla (Mexico), JIISIC conferences have been gathering an always increasing number of attendants.

This issue is organized by Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
