ESTCON2018 is one of the world’s largest congresses Malaysia has ever hosted which comprises ten simultaneously-held international conferences, focusing on different issues pertaining to their respective theme, namely:
Why 10 conferences?
There is a wide range of topic discussions related to the 9 pillars of Fourth Industrial Revolution such as simulation, big data & amp, analytics, augmented reality, autonomous robots and the industrial internet of things to non-technical topics of leadership and values, economy, communication & community and much more. Therefore, conducting 10 conferences to focus on specific areas is a better way at ensuring that more can be done at one time. Let’s take a look at each conference background:
International Conference on Oil & Gas Engineering and Technology (ICOGET 2018) is organised by the Petroleum Engineering Department. In this year’s conference, the focus is towards sustaining petroleum resources for the energy demands in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We will be presented with advancements in oil and gas exploration and appraisal technology in efforts to maximise oil reserves and enhance production of oil and gas.
International Conference on Civil, Offshore & Environmental Engineering (ICCOEE 2018) is organised by the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Through this conference, we will catch a glimpse of the state-of-the-art technologies implemented in the environmental, structural and transportation engineering such as Self-Sustainable Buildings, Smart Materials and Intelligent Transportation System.
The International Conference on Production, Energy and Reliability (ICPER 2018) is organised by the Mechanical Engineering Department with the theme: Embracing Industry 4.0 for Sustainable Futures. This era of digitisation will cause disruption to the production and manufacturing landscape. ICPER 2018 will discuss on the impacts of this disruption and how the industry can utilise new technology such as autonomous systems in manufacturing, advanced energy management and renewable energy as well as the implementation of big data analytics to monitor production lines.
International Conference on Geosciences (ICG 2018) is organised by the Geosciences Department. The conference will present the geosciences in gearing towards green technology and integrated systems. The conference will also shed light on new discoveries
to manage earth resources and geohazards, such as in hazard identification and reduction as well as the use of advanced seismic sensing tools to predict oil and gas buildups.
The International Conference on Process Engineering and Advanced Materials (ICPEAM 2018) is organised by the Chemical Engineering Department. This conference will serve as intersection of industrial expertise, engineers, scientists, academicians and scholars to address the challenges of the Fourth Industrial
Revolution in system engineering, process optimisation, advanced materials and thriving sustainability, while introducing technological innovation to cater to these changes.
International Conference on Intelligent & Advanced Systems (ICIAS 2018) is organised by the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department. The conference covers areas of autonomous systems, system simulation and integration, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics. The conference will discuss introduction of self-aware machinery and intelligent systems at consumer and industrial levels, pushing the boundaries of smart technology in this digital era.
The International Conference on Computer and Information Sciences (ICCOINS 2018) is organised by the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. The conference promotes research and development activities in Computer Science, Information Technology and Information Systems towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) which requires intersection of disciplines
in computing as well as others such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, social sciences, business administration, manufacturing etc. Thus, ICCOINS 2018 will be an ideal platform
for researchers and industry players to share views, ideas and experiences in information processing, computing techniques and other related areas towards this digital era of IR 4.0. ICCOINS 2018 is technically sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
International Conference on Fundamental & Applied Sciences (ICFAS 2018) is organised by the Fundamental & Applied Sciences Department. The conference aims to bring together academicians, scientists and industrialists from all around the world for knowledge sharing, exchange of ideas, and to present research findings in all aspects of applied sciences. The conference will share insights
on futuristic technologies such as nanotechnology, sustainable chemistry and advanced computational methods and statistics.
International Conference on Leadership & Management (ICLM 2018) is organised by the Management and Humanities Department. In this conference, the scope will answer questions on the roles
of leaders and corporate management as we embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution. ICLM 2018 will discuss new ideas and schools of thought with regards to organisations, while deliberating on the challenges of the new era to institutions and entities, in attempts to redefine leadership and management in a futuristic society.
International Conference on Humanities and Social Sciences (ICHSS 2018) is organised by the Management and Humanities Department. Education and the Humanities in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a complex, dialectical and exciting opportunity which can potentially transform society for the better. This conference will explore the role of education and the humanities in its teaching, research (including innovation), skills enhancement and its service within an innovative technologically advanced and industrialised context.
This congress will also organise Innovation Pitching to provide a platform for researchers and investors to seek funds and partners for product commercialisation opportunities. Innovation Pitching aims to bridge UTP technology to the industry, create awareness of UTP’s capability in technology development and commercialise UTP technology.
