The 9th International Mechatronics and Automation Engineering Congress, CIIMA 2020, is an IEEE conference, gathering students, faculty, alumni and research crew members of Mechatronics an Automation engineering where they can exchange experiences and results within lectures and forums held regarding trends and new technologies in these fields.

The conference will be held in Cartagena, Colombia, on November 4 to 6, 2020, at Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar, through its Mechatronics Engineering Department.

The Colombian Network of Mechatronics and Automation Engineering Programs (RIMA - by its Spanish initials), supported by ACOFI (Colombian Engineering Faculties Asociation) promotes the conference on a yearly base, hosting it across cities in Colombia.

CIIMA 2020 is a scientific and technological conference.

The procceedings shall be published with ISBN and indexed by IEEE.


  • Facilitate academic exchange between research teams and faculty from Mechatronics programs covered by RIMA and abroad.
  • Divulge latest advances and new findings within Mechatronics and Automation Engineering.
  • Promote interaction between private businesses, government and universities to make known and extend the applications and operative field of Mechatronics and Automation Engineering.
  • Provide a space where engineers, business owners, technology developers and faculty can come together to multiply knowledge transference, technological innovation and applied engineering solutions in the field.
