This Congress is a multidisciplinary forum where experts in medicine, exact sciences and engineering participate, presenting possible solutions to specific problems through technological developments.

In this regard, Dr. Daniel Durini, Director of Technological Development of the INAOE, expressed that for the INAOE and the participating institutions these efforts are very important, since currently scientific and technological development can be part of the resolution of specific problems. in society, these ideas arise in this type of congresses, which strengthen institutional ties that allow finding new techniques of scientific development applied to the health sector.

Likewise, Dr. Eduardo Tepichín thanked the UPAEP for opening the space to CONITACS and the sponsoring institutions, since without them this congress could not be held. He pointed out that all conferences are plenary due to the level of research papers being presented this year.

The CONITACS program is made up of keynote lectures by leading scientists from various countries, which will be given remotely and in person.
