The Latin American Symposium on High Energy Physics (SILAFAE) is a well established series of international conferences on Particle Physics, currently on its 12th edition. It congregates the Latin American particle physics community, with the aim of discussing our current knowledge and the future perspectives in particle and astroparticle physics, including topics such as gravitation and cosmology. This is achieved mainly through theoretical and experimental plenary talks, as well as parallel oral contributions and poster presentations.
In this way, the SILAFAE not only keeps the Latin American particle physics community updated in cutting edge knowledge, it also consolidates ties between researchers within and outside the region. In addition, the SILAFAE has the important role of allowing junior scientists within the continent to present their work.
