   B. Workshops/ Conferences

Conference title: AI: The Path Forward - From Asian and European Perspective
Date: 3-5 October 2022
Venue: AITCC (Robert B. Bank Auditorium)
Number of Participants: 100

2) The ICUE 2022 conference

The last time Asian Institute of Technology held the ICUE international conference in 2020, the pandemic was at its peak. The COVID 19 has changed nearly all the aspects of our lives including the way we organize and hold academic events like ICUE. Even in the worst time of pandemic, we never fail to exchange our knowledge, opinions, and our findings not just to improve and support each other’s research works but also to implement the goals we set for sustainable development.

“ We are glad to inform you that this year, AIT will proudly organize and hold the ICUE 2022 conference in Pattaya City from 26 to 28 October 2022.

Attaining the goals of sustainable development is based on three interlinked criteria: economic development, social progress, and environmental protection. Development would be meaningless if it does not ensure a sustainable economic growth that guarantees future generations’ ability to thrive and prosper without sacrificing the regenerative capacity of the environment. Economic activities always equate to environmental degradation and pollution, CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions and consequently global warming and climate change consequences. Thus it is our generation’s challenge to aim for a low-carbon based economic growth as it is the only way to help mitigate environmental pollution and subsequent effects of climate change. The ICUE 2022 conference is being organized by the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) to be a venue to exchange research ideas, outputs, experiences by covering technical, social, financial, economic and policy issues on Energy, Environment, and Climate Change. The conference is part of the ICUE conference series being organized by AIT every two years. Here, we expect professionals, policy makers, researchers, engineers, members of the academia, to convene and discuss global, regional, and national issues, covering a wide range of technical, economic, and social dimensions of energy utilization, its effect on the environment and climate change.

The ICUE 2022 Scientific Committee will select and announce the best conference papers (presented) after the conference. The selected papers can be recommended to the journal of Frontiers of Environmental Science and Engineering. It is an internationally peer-reviewed scientific journal of Chinese Academy of Engineering (IF 4.357), aiming to advance and disseminate knowledge in a wide range of environmental disciplines, and to promote interchange of ideas between environmental scientists and engineers in China and around the world. Authors who accept the recommendation can submit their full paper to the journal for further peer-review. Authors can also choose to publish their papers in the conference proceedings.

Best Student Paper Awards will be accorded to well-written and presented student papers (oral presentation MUST be done by a current student). The winning papers will be invited for publication in the International Energy Journal (IEJ) – an open-source, Scopus-indexed, ESCI-abstracted, and EI Compendex-listed peer-reviewed journal published by the Asian Institute of Technology. Moreover, the proceedings of the ICUE 2022 conference will be published inthe IEEE Xplore.

On behalf of the organizing committee of the ICUE 2022, we cordially invite you to participate in this conference. The early bird registration for the conference will open until 15 August 2022, so take your chance to register before the deadline. See you in Pattaya. For more information, please visit our conference website at www.icue2022.ait.ac.th.

3) The Water Security and Climate Change Conferences

Date: 1-3 December 2022

Venue: Hybrid (with physical sessions at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand)

Organizers: CNRD (TH Köln), SWINDON (TU Braunschweig), FSC (Univ. Hohenheim),

SDG Network (Univ. Gießen), ABCD Centre (TU Dresden), & the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).

The Water Security and Climate Change (WSCC) series of conferences have been held on an annual basis since 2016. The first edition of the conference was organized in Bangkok (2016), and subsequently in Cologne (2017), Nairobi (2018), San Luis Potosí (2019), and Hanoi (2021). The overarching objective of these conferences is to proliferate the exchange of knowledge and practical know-how on the intrinsic relationship between water security and climate change, with a view to advance fundamental and action research in this domain that will help humankind address one of the greatest challenges of our times.

The WSCC conferences have become a notable academic platform for scientific, technical discourses, and policy-oriented discourses and discussions, evidenced by the increased number of participants each year. Furthermore, the conference has also contributed to the strengthening of the EXCEED by connecting member networks as well as raising awareness on the topic of water security and climate change. The conference additionally broadens its organization committee in 2022 by including the DAAD-funded organizations SDG nexus Network and ABCD-Center.

This year, the WSCC will be held from 01–03 December 2022 in Bangkok. The conference will be organized in a hybrid format, with a selected number of participants invited to Bangkok to present their work in person, while some sessions organized online for a wider audience.

Email was sent on behalf of the School of Engineering and Technolog on 24 August 2022.

I would like to invite you to participate in the 1st International Symposium on ONE HEALTH, ONE WORLD (OHOW). This is the first one in its series. The Symposium is initiated and organized by AIT and the University of Tokyo. 

The scope of the Symposium covers many subjects, which include, for example,

  • Urban Safety & Disaster Mitigation,
  • Pollution and environmental risk management,
  • Climate change and water resources,
  • Pandemic and public health issues,
  • Biodiversity, wildlife and terrestrial ecosystems,
  • Carbon emissions

You might be interested to share your work on these subjects in this Symposium. There will be many researchers from the University of Tokyo joining this Symposium.

Only an extended abstract is required (a full paper is not required), and the deadline is September 16th, 2022 (about 4- 5 weeks from now). The deadline is not rigid. All these abstracts will be open to the public after the symposium.

The venue is Pattaya. Most likely it will be a good hotel in Jomtien Beach. All participants and their family can enjoy it.

The registration fee is quite low: 150 US$ for domestic participants (Thai & non-Thai) and 50 US$ for domestic students (Thai & non-Thai).

It is a 2-day symposium followed by a one-day technical/cultural tour.

Please also help promote this symposium by distributing the attached symposium brochure to your colleagues and those who might be interested.
