It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the IV Multidisciplinary Congress of Applied Sciences in Latin America (COMCAPLA 2018) that will take place in the city of Merida, capital city of the state of Yucatán, México, from November 20 to 23, 2018.

The conference venue will be the Autonomous University of Yucatan, UADY.

Mérida, known as the White City because of the limestone color of its buildings, is a place with a warm climate and lush vegetation. Located southeast of Mexico, is known for the tranquility with which its inhabitants live, who distinguish themselves by their kindness and hospitality. Mérida was founded on January 6, 1542 and built upon the Mayan city of T'ho.

The goal of COMCAPLA 2018 is to provide an academic platform where recent advances, techniques and novel applications in the fields of engineering, chemistry, computing, mathematics, physics, among others, are discussed; fostering the establishment collaborative networks and expanding the spectrum of science applications to problems that affect our countries, through the concurrence of specialists from various branches of knowledge that hardly meet in the same forum.

It is aimed at engineers, scientists, technologists, professionals, professors and students-researchers from different countries and branches of knowledge who, applying science’s methods or modern techniques and methods in engineering, seek to solve the problems concerning our reality, the current state of science and technology, our daily teaching work and our social environment, performing their work in academics, industry or the laboratory; individually or in collaboration with colleagues and students.


The Committee Chair of the IV Multidisciplinary Congress of Applied Sciences in Latin America, COMCAPLA 2018 invites the authors to send their full contributions (full extent) to the conference before July 20, 2018 at 23:59, local time (there will not be previous submission of abstracts), sending articles or posters that illustrate the results of their research, projects or panoramic works that describe important advances in the areas of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The works must be original and not previously published. Accepted contributions will appear in a publication, with ISBN, of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
