Dear Fellow Academics
I am very pleased to announce that Walailak University is organizing a major international conference on the Impact of the 4thIndustrial Revolution on its campus in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, Thailand, on the 27th – 30th March 2019. Obviously, we are joining other institutions and forums around the world to discuss this immense change that is having wide-ranging impacts on the way we live our lives.
Indeed, this conference is a way for WU to show its determination to play an active part in tackling critical issues facing our society worldwide. This is a part of our efforts to internationalize our University. The gathering will provide an opportunity for scholars to exchange new ideas, explore recent innovations and possibly extend their research network.
Papers for the conference are expected to discuss the impact of the 4thIndustrial Revolution on at least one of the four main areas: Science and Technology, Health Science, Environmental Sciences, and Social Science.
Nakhon Si Thammarat Province is in Southern Thailand, about 800 kilometers from the Capital City of Bangkok. It is renowned for both beautiful mountains and blue sea, with great cultural heritages.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to cordially invite our global colleagues to join us in this very significant academic event, and hopefully you could also take a little extra time off to experience the unique beauty of Nakhon Si Thammarat and its nearby Samui Island.
Professor Dr. Sombat Thamrongthanyawong
President, Walailak University
