Technology and Business:

 

A. Intelligent Manufacturing and Technology

Chair: Professor Chen Shia Chung, Director, R&D Centre for Smart Manufacturing, Chung Yuan Christian University

Smart factories or Intelligent Manufacturing (IM) constitutes a key feature of Industry 4.0. In the smart factory, human beings, machines and resources communicate with each other as naturally as in a social network. IM integrates various elements including production information, processing technologies and artificial intelligence for data analyses to constitute an active Cyber-Physical System. IM changes the whole process from product development, manufacturing, logistics and sales to business process reengineering. IM also improves production flexibility, energy-usage and environmental sustainability.

We welcome submissions in the areas of Industrial Internet of Things, Digitalisation for Design and Engineering, Production Optimisation, Performance Management, Rapid Experimentation and Simulation, Rapid Prototyping, Control, Predictive and Remote Maintenance, Flexible Manufacturing and Scheduling, Automation, Smart Energy Consumption, Supply and Demand Prediction and other relevant topics.

 

B. Digital Construction

Chair: Dr Evelyn Teo, Associate Professor, National University Singapore

Industry 4.0 has transformed the construction industry landscape drastically. It is experiencing evolution in efficiency, quality and sustainability, thereby reducing life cycle costing, lead time and duplication through digitalisation of building information. This development is set to encourage digital adoption by industry players as Malaysia embraces the fourth Industrial Revolution. We invite your participation in sharing your insights.

 

C. Engineering Innovation and Invention

Chair: TBC

In recent years the 4th Industrial Revolution has brought different fields of engineering closer together. The digitisation of the construction industry has empowered civil engineers to use prefabricated products of different shapes and styles designed by mechanical engineers. At the same time, the sustainability of our economy, particularly in relation to climate change and renewable energy, has become a concern for all engineers. The problems of pollution in Malaysia and rising sea levels require real innovation in flood and water management where computational design and monitoring systems play a significant role.

We welcome topics related to mechanical and civil engineering, materials, sustainability and renewable sources of energy as well as other relevant engineering topics under the umbrella of innovation commensurate with the digitalisation of our modern lifestyle.

Social Impact and Talent Development:

 

A. Social Business

Chair: Dr Lokhman Hakim Osman, Director, Yunus Social Business Centre, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia

With the widening gap of inequality among members of society, we might face increasing difficulty in achieving sustainable development goals (SDG) than we expect. This could become even more challenging in this digital era. One key approach towards closing the gap of inequality and meeting the objectives of the SDG is through the concept of social business. The social business model introduced by the Nobel Peace Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus considers solutions to some of the most pressing problems facing the world.

We welcome contributions from anyone who has a perspective on the concept of social business and related issues which may include poverty and wealth concentration; affordable healthcare for socially deprived people; application of technologies in achieving qualitative changes in the lives of the unreachable people; issues related to the financing of social businesses; research and teaching methodologies of social business; measurement of social impacts of social businesses; prudent methodologies for managing social businesses; social business and education; social business and customer relationships; application of artificial intelligence and robotics in social business and social business and sports.

 

B. Engineering Education

Chair: Associate Professor Dr Cecilia Chan, Founding Chair, The Asian Society for Engineering Education

In this fast-paced and highly technological 21st century society, the mission of engineering education to foster a versatile pool of talents has been substantial. Engineering students need to develop capabilities to address various societal challenges for the development of a knowledge-based economy. As engineering educators, we also face numerous challenges and changes. The objective of this track is to provide opportunities for us to share good practices, exchange ideas and foster a collaborative network among stakeholders in the field of engineering education.

We invite you to submit your paper to one of the following themes:

• Engineering Pedagogies: Innovative pedagogies, curriculum renewal, professional development for engineering teachers, engineering professional skills enhancement, using technology to enhance engineering education.

• Engineering Assessment: Innovative assessment, design of assessment framework/rubric, engineering employability and professional skills assessment, experiential learning assessment.

• Engineering Interdisciplinary: Joint programmes, collaboration between disciplines and/or institutions.

• Socio-cultural-economic issues on engineering education: engineering education policy, sustainability and ethics, lifelong learning, gender issues, future engineering skills and talent management, career development and support, Industry 4.0 in engineering education, etc.

 

C. TVET Education

Chair: Professor Chandler Huang, Director, UNESCO UNEVOC Centre, Zhejiang Technical Institute of Economics

 

With rapid technological innovation and modernisation bringing intensified competition in the market economy, the Technical and Vocational Education and training (TVET) system has to realise its significant role in the socio-economic development of developing countries to keep pace with ever increasing globalisation. To meet the demands of the increasing socio-economic divide brought about by globalisation, it is imperative that TVET take up the challenge to forge innovations to be fully able to contribute to socio-economic transformation of developing countries, thereby proving its catalyst impact in the economies in the region.

 

Innovations in TVET include raising the general educational background of vocational education; widening the route from vocational education to higher education; deploying competence-based curriculum development mechanisms; strengthening the cooperation between the education authorities and employment organisation and industries; decentralising the delivery system and involving employers more in the process of TVET.

 

We sincerely invite you to submit your paper on the above topics.
