imav 2019 11th International Micro Air Vehicle Competition and Conference 
Madrid October 1st - 4th

IMAV is a competition and conference event on Mini and Micro Aerial Vehicles (i.e. drones) that was born in Europe in 2009. After several consecutive years held in Europe, IMAV aimed to be spread worldwide starting in Beijing 2016. IMAV currently gather around 200 researcher all aver the world to demonstrate their capabilities for fulfilling new challenges in drone autonomous missions.

IMAV is held alternatively in and out Europe in consecutive years since then.
