Welcome to the 12th edition of the
International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Competition
(IMAV) 2021

The IMAV is an annual international event bringing together scientists, technologists and enthusiasts on the research and technological development of micro-air vehicles.

For the first time ever, the IMAV will be organized in Latin America. The 12th IMAV 2021 will be held in Mexico, in the City of San Andres Cholula, in the State of Puebla, between the 17th to the 19th of November, 2021.

The organization will be run by three Mexican academic institutions: The Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica Óptica y Electrónica (INAOE); the Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP), and the Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we will run the conference only in a virtual mode. Therefore, you are welcome to submit technical and scientific papers to be presented during the conference days. We look forward to seeing you at the IMAV 2021!
