International Congress

What is it?

The International Academic Congress will gather scientists, academics, professors, students, engineers, and engineering-related professionals in order to know and discuss on the latest advances of the discipline worldwide.

This event will be organized by the Engineering Faculty of Universidad de Antioquia and will be attended by important domestic and international lecturers, focused on four topics: energy, infrastructure, vital engineering, and 4.0 technologies.

People interested in participating in the event are welcomed to send their articles to be disclosed orally -in person or virtually- or as a poster. This is a unique opportunity to gather scientific, academic, governmental and industrial sector communities holding interest in knowing advances and perspectives of engineering worldwide, to present results, to interchange ideas, and to establish relationships with their peers for future collaborations.


What do the thematic axes consist of?

The energy development currently (and in the future) shows challenges associated to the diversification of its sources to assure a reliable provision to societies under sustainability conditions; to assure access to social sectors with a low income; and to assure its reasonable and efficient use in all sectors. Within this context, the International Congress EXPOIngeniería 2022 is a good chance to disclose research results, innovations, research agendas, and technological development on the topic.


  • Conventional sources of energy
  • Solar energy, eolic, geothermic 
  • Green and blue hydrogen
  • Waste to energy
  • Wave energy
  • Biomass
  • Energy efficiency and quality
  • Materials for generation and storage
  • Energy transport and distribution
  • Energetic sustainability in transportation
  • Smart networks

The rapid growth of the population and the permanent increase of demand for energy, communication, food, drinkable water, sanitation systems, health, and housing are only some of the challenges that, in a short-, medium-, and long-term engineering should face proposing clever and creative solutions and always tending towards a respectful use of the available resources as a way of assuring the sustainable development of communities.


  • Transportation
  • Telecommunications
  • Irrigation, sanitary, and housing systems
  • Healthcare systems
  • Structural materials
  • Coatings
  • Degradation of materials
  • Urbanistic processes
  • River and coastal infrastructure

There is not a known space of human activities where 4.0 technologies have no impacts -positive or negative-. This encounter at the International Congress EXPOIngeniería 2022 will help us approach such future foreseen full of challenges, in which engineering will be required to help society with its capacity to beneficially and sustainably assimilate life of all inhabitants.

Engineering for live is intended to offer biophysical conditions to harmonize life in our planet with productive processes and sustainable development. It also tries to resolve problems of society associated to the demand for clean energy, conservation of natural resources, and challenges of access to hygiene and basic sanitation in rural regions in order to mitigate the effects of pollution caused by plastic and other emerging materials and to successfully face the harmful consequences of climate change. Contributions of this dimension will help day-by-day to reach an increasingly equitable society that can be in harmony with all life forms in our planet.

  • Population growth
  • Socio-environmental sustainability: green chemistry and life cycle analysis
  • Engineering for health
  • Sustainable territories
  • Biodiversity and deforestation
  • Diagnosis and treatment of the environment

Medellin is a Colombian Municipality, capital city of the State of Antioquia. It is the most populated city of Antioquia and the second most populated city of the country. It is settled in the widest part of the natural region known as “Valle de Aburrá” at Andes central cordillera and is the most important urban center of such Andean range of mountain. It extends on both sides of Medellin river (also known as “Aburrá” river), which crosses the city from south to north; Medellin is the main core of the Metropolitan Area of “Valle de Aburrá.” The city has a population of 2,533,424 inhabitants (2020), a number which grows up to 4,055,296 inhabitants if the Metropolitan Area is included (2020).

How to get there?

There are two airports in Medellin: One is called “Enrique Olaya Herrera” (EOH), mainly used for regional or domestic flights; and “José María Córdova” (MDE), specifically used for international flights; airport to which most travelers arrive in the city. In the case of EOH airport, it is located close to Medellin Southern Bus Terminal, about 10 minutes away from El Poblado, a zone situated in the center and mandatory pass for all travelers wishing to know one of the most welcoming and entertaining places in the city.

The MDE airport, also known as Rionegro Airport (since it is located at a municipality bearing the same name) is at the outskirts of the city, between 24.4 and 36.6 kilometers away, depending on the road you choose to go to the airport. Private or public transportation (cabs and buses) can be taken to arrive to or leave the MDE airport.

For participants who are going to perform presentations (orally or poster), registration fees will be the following:

• Early payment registration: USD 75.00, until September 30.
• Full registration: USD 100.00, from October 1 to October 20.

For people attending EXPOIngenieria 2022, who will not perform presentations in the International Congress, entry will be free but access will depend on the capacity of the event site.

Call of papers

People interested can submit their papers in order to be considered for oral presentation (in person or virtually) or poster. The character of the research can be, but is not limited to, practical, analytical, theoretical, or experimental. All the submissions will be pair reviewed and published in the proceedings of the congress. Papers should be submitted in English using the Extended Abstract Template. Also, posters and slides to be presented in the congress should be in English. Presentations can be performed in English or Spanish, in person or virtually. Additionally, authors can submit their full papers to our Allied Journals to be considered for publication in the special numbers of the International Congress EXPOIngeniería 2022.
