Jointly supported by 

Mesoamerican Society for Biology and Conservation, Mexico (MSBC)

Aims to bring together academicians, Professionals, Researchers, Policy Makers and General Public for the 

4th International Conference of 

Environmental Network Researchers Group of IPN.


The main theme of the conference is “Ecosystems for Future Generations

The conference will be held at Hotel Villa Bejar, Cuernavaca, State of Morelos, Mexico from 6th to 8th October, 2021.

The Organizing Committee of CIMA 2021 is closely monitoring the situation in Mexico and around the globe due to the present uncertain circumstances. Our goal is to create a conducive environment for a successful event that allows good participation, while protecting the health and well-being of our participants. In line with the successful first three REMA conferences during the past decade, it is my pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 4th CIMA 2021 which will be held from 6th to 8th October, 2021. Considering the health and safety recommendations around the World, the event will be in a hybrid environment both in person and via online to discuss and interact together.

The 4th International Conference of Environmental Network Researchers Group of the National Polytechnic Institute will address the following issues in-line with the research of this group.

The central theme of the conference is “Ecosystems for Future Generations”. The main aspect is the resilience of a social and/ or ecological system to absorb the disturbances, to maintain the basic structure its functions, the self-organization to absorb the stress as well as their adaptation to changing environment.

The event will include plenary lectures, regular lectures in oral/digital and in poster formats.
