The Mechanical Engineering Department of the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana Bucaramanga (Colombia), will celebrate the International Week of Research, Development and Innovation (SIIDI 2017), from October 2 to 6, 2017. Three major events will take place during this week meant to gather researchers, innovators and industrial partners from all around the world:

The 3rd International Congress of Mechanical Engineering and Agricultural Science (CIIMCA 2017), the 2nd International Conference Science & Technology of Drying (CiCTS 2017) and the 3rd international meeting of the RIIVI net.

This provides an exceptional opportunity to see many specialty groups gather in one place to engage, interact ant to learn what others are doing. Additionally, listen to well-known researchers, leaders in their fields and developers of new scientific paradigms will be really inspirational for all public attending.

Invited speakers will discuss, debate and analyze current trends, growing possibilities and future developments in areas like food and bioprocesses technologies, drying technologies, renewable energies use and industrial automation among others.

Participants are invited to submit original research papers dealing with the following thematic areas (These are the major areas; see congress categories of participation: Detailed topics to get more information):

Oral and poster presentations will be arranged according to the preference of authors and the approval of the scientific committee. All abstracts will be published in the CIIIMCA & CiCTS 2017 Proceedings (ISSN 2382-3305). It is important to outline that a special section of the conference proceedings will be dedicated to the research-incubators works.

Selected works will be invited to publish a Conference Paper in a special volume of the IOP Conference Series: Materials and Engineering Science (ISSN 1757-899X), which is a Scopus indexed publication (more information in the IOP procedure section). Likewise, the UIS Engineering Journal (Revista UIS Ingenierías-ISSN 2145-8456), which is an indexed publication (Ebsco, Latinindex), will invite some selected works to publish a Scientific Paper in one of its this year issues.

Previous editions of these events can be accessed at ciimca 2015 and CiCTS 2014 .

We look forward to meeting you at the 2017 International Week of Research, Development and Innovation in Bucaramanga.
