The 8th RMUTP International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development accomplished by Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon (RMUTP) will be held during 22-23 June 2017. The conference focuses mainly on the event ” Sustainable Development” proposed by the United Nation. The developed program has a purpose to meet the needs of all present generation and the future generation who do not require to compromise and/ or diminish their abilities to meet their own needs.

The approach comprises flexible integration of Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities and Engineering Principles. RMUTP International Conference, therefore, follows this concept distinguished into the Science, Technology, and Innovation for Sustainable Development as well as all subsidizing main fundamentals for both Creative and the Green economy. In addition, we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. Developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, biotechnology, and so on, are all building on and amplifying one another. This will lay the foundation for a revolution more comprehensive and all encompassing than anything we have ever seen. Our present recognized conference has thus established in the title “The 8th RMUTP International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development: Challenges towards the Digital society”. Our organized co-hosts include Centre for Financial Econometrics (Deakin University), Royal Thai Army, Mahidol University, and The International Business Machines Corporation (IBM).
Though our legitimate goal for the Conference aims to enhance knowledge sharing mutually among researchers in the country and abroad, our expectation is to obtain the creation of networks of research and development and bring overview benefits of collaborative development in both the country and the nearby region.
