The Iberoamerican Meetings on Geometry, Mechanics and Control are the result of the efforts of different research groups, in various Iberoamerican countries with interest in differential geometry, mechanics and control theory to establish scientific meetings of the specialty. These subject matters are highly topical, interacting in a common area of Mathematics, Physics, Mechanics, and Engineering. This will be the fourth edition of a congress that came up with the idea of promoting the interactions between these disciplines, between the mathematical communities in these countries, while maintaining an international character. This type of conferences are important to keep and to strengthen contacts between the Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American groups and also establish a framework for spreading and for expand cooperation with researchers from other European countries, United States, Canada and China, among others. One of the most important features of this series of conferences is the emphasis on the assistance and active participation of young researchers, with a dual purpose: contribute to improve their training by putting them in contact with great value senior researchers, and promote contact between themselves which could turn out in subsequent scientific collaborations. The congress is held every two years, and will be alternating between Spain and a country of Latin America. The three previous editions has been in in Santiago de Compostela (Spain), June 2008, in Bariloche (Argentina), January 2011, and in Salamanca (Spain), September 2012. This fourth edition will take place in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) from 4th to 11th April 2014.
