INTRODUCTION

The second international congress of mechanical engineering and agricultural science (CIIMCA 2015) looks forward to exchange new scientific knowledge on several fundamental areas to promote the interaction between professionals from academia, industry and government, not only from Colombia but other countries around the globe. This event is a great opportunity to discuss issues of common interest, to exchange ideas and to establish highly valuable relationships with a global research community.

It is with this in mind that the second international congress of mechanical engineering and agricultural science (CIIMCA 2015) is organized. The purpose is to bring together scientists and engineers from the mechanics and agricultural science communities to present their latest results and discuss new advances over a broad range of topics dealing with vibration modeling & testing, renewable energy and thermofluids analytical, science and drying technology, automation and agricultural science and engineering education as well as case studies. We have done our best to provide the delegates with an environment conducive to exchange of knowledge, networking and making new friends.

We take this to thank our colleagues who contributed considerably to the event by organizing topical symposia and by helping us to launch this important meeting. We are truly grateful for their efforts. We wish you all a happy and successful stay in Colombia.
