Physics is a very early and fundamental Science which enable us to understand natures starting from very small scale (atoms for example) to very large scale (like galaxies). Moreover, Physics has been applied in many ways for improving our quality of life expectedly and unexpectedly. Even though, nowadays, Physics become less popular in term of choice for students to study at higher education level due to the new skills set needed in the modern market and industry, the importance of Physics for new or breakthrough technology development or innovation remains unchanged. This session welcomes presentations from a wide range of Physics and Applied Physics which may lead to better understanding of natures or improving towards Sustainable Development Goals–SDGs.

Biological sciences for advancing towards sustainable development goals (SDGs)

The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are an important component of all sustainability initiatives at both national and international levels. Biological sciences pose as one of the basic disciplines for advancing towards SDGs. Substantial efforts in biological research have been made and endless initiatives have been devoted to meeting the SDGs. This session seeks to promote crosstalk across the areas of biological sciences and provide an opportunity for researchers to explore and discover potentially unrecognized common interests towards SDGs. Researchers in all disciplines of life sciences are welcome to share your recent data in this session of the STT48 conference. The session will cover a wide range of life sciences including biochemistry, biotechnology, microbiology, molecular biology, biomedical science, and biodiversity.

Chemistry is a broad, diverse and multidisciplinary field. It is involved in every other science as a foundation. Accordingly, chemistry has a unique role to play in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs). This session aims to bring together academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of chemistry and related fields. There are four sub-sessions of chemistry, each of which is widely spread into many areas of study.

Analytical chemistry

Analytical chemistry has expanded as a multidisciplinary field crossing borders between chemistry, materials science and biology. The enormous challenges in securing our future needs for food safety, protecting human safety and health, the environment, and clinical diagnostics requires us to rethink and optimize processes. The rapid development of analytical methods and instrumentation enables diverse applications. Therefore, this sub-session welcomes presentations from fundamental to applied research related to sample preparation, chromatographic methods, environmental chemistry, spectroscopic analysis, electro-analytical chemistry, chemical- and bio-sensors, and modern analytical techniques.

Inorganic Chemistry

To celebrate the International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD2022), “Basic sciences are the sine qua non for sustainable development”. In this sub-session we will showcase the breadth of Inorganic Chemistry, with a particular focus on how advances in fundamental inorganic chemistry (from synthesis to characterization to computational) enhance the impact of innovations for real world applications. The scope for this sub-session will include catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, coordination polymers, magnetic and luminescent complexes to clusters and nanoparticles.

Organic & Medicinal Chemistry

Organic and medicinal chemistry has been defined collectively as a hybrid discipline of many other subjects, particularly biology, chemistry, medicine and pharmacy. Contributions should be related to natural product chemistry, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, chemical synthesis, synthetic organic chemistry, computational chemistry and drug design.

Physical & Theoretical Chemistry

Nowadays, numerous physical and theoretical chemistry research can support and drive the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Hence, the physical and theoretical chemistry sub-session would like to share new knowledge, ideas, technologies, innovations, and applications for sustainable development from research areas of physical chemistry, theoretical chemistry, physical transformations, electrochemistry, quantum chemistry, computational chemistry, spectroscopy, photochemistry, chemical physics, biophysical chemistry, surface chemistry, colloids, and chemical kinetics.

This session welcomes all researchers in Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and other related fields to present and exchange their academic views on the latest and novel research findings. The session’s theme is, but not limited to, using the aforementioned fields to, hopefully, serve as sustainable solutions for advancing towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.

The purpose of this session is to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars from all around the world to present research findings and innovation in ENERGY / ENVIRONMENTAL & EARTH SCIENCE / MATERIALS SCIENCE, and related fields. The session particularly focuses on energy technology, both renewable and non-renewable energy such as coal, natural gas, biomass, solar, geothermal, and wind energies, as well as energy materials for energy generation and storage including dielectric, piezoelectric, and triboelectric materials. Beside the sustainable energy, the pioneer research in environmental fields related with waste treatment, upcycling, and pollution control especially carbon dioxide capture and utilization are encouraged for submission. The session is expected to be an interdisciplinary forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, developments, and applications of the technologies which make advancement towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Sustainable Innovation Development in Agri-Food Systems

The occurrence of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic leads to changes of lifestyle and working system, moreover it causes a high impact on a falling of world economy. Along with the occurrence of pandemic, according to WHO, about 690 million people were undernourished at the end of 2019 and absent rapid interventions, the COVID-19 pandemic could force an additional 130 million people into chronic hunger. Poor nutrition causes 45 per cent of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year. Limitation of transportation during pandemic leads to food losses. Each year, an estimated one third of all food produced ends up rotting in the bins of consumers and retailers, or spoiling due to poor transportation and harvesting practices. Innovation development in agri-food system should be raised in attention markedly due to impact of COVID-19. Sustainable innovation development in agri-food systems would support adequate nutrition, which helps people of all ages to achieve good health. Rebuilding our agri-food systems to make them more sustainable, productive and resilient is essential--for solving long-term hunger challenges and managing acute shocks, like disease outbreaks and climate extremes. Sustainable agri-food systems reduce waste and spoilage, and empower consumers to make smart choices in their food shopping and other innovations, sustainable food systems can deliver widespread benefits to people and plane. This session of “Sustainable Innovation Development in Agri-Food Systems” opens for these following areas.
  • Agri-Food cultivation and postharvest
  • Agri-Food processing and engineering
  • Food packaging and quality control
  • Seafood Innovation
  • Zero waste in Agri-Food System
