The Challenge of Change

The Chemical Engineering Department, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) is pleased to announce the International Conference on Process Engineering and Advanced Materials (ICPEAM2018) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 13 to 14 August 2018. This is the 5th in series of conference organised under the umbrella of World Engineering, Science and Technology Congress (ESTCON), Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, since 2010.

The overarching objective of the conference is to spark a broader discussion on the opportunity and challenges of current technological innovation towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0). The IR 4.0 entails the integration of digital, physical and biological systems and it is evolving at an exponential rate. This revolution is disrupting all disciplines and industries, thus driving a new wave of innovation in system engineering, process optimisation, advanced materials and thriving sustainability. ICPEAM2018 will serve as intersection of industrial expertise, engineers, scientists, academicians and scholars to disseminate the latest findings from their areas of expertise that embrace “The Challenge of Change” towards IR 4.0.
