Welcome to CSSR2017

On behalf of the organizing team, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all participants who will join and present their research findings in the 4rd International Conference on Science and Social Research, CSSR2017.

The Institute of Research Management & Innovation (IRMI) Universiti Teknologi MARA has constantly and relevantly drive the research community to achieve tremendous output. One of the continuous efforts conducted by IRMI is organizing CSSR in order to facilitate publication of research findings in high quality journals and enhance the visibility of researchers locally and internationally. The first and second CSSR were held in 2010 and 2015, respectively. Experiences gained by IRMI and good support from participants have helped the planning and execution of CSSR2017.

“Translating Research Into Impact” is the theme for CSSR2017. This is consistent with the scope and objectives of CSSR2017. CSSR2017 covers multi-disciplinary research areas from science and technology to social science and humanities. The conference track is divided into three major areas namely, Engineering, Science & Technology, Clinical & Health sciences and Arts, Humanities & Social sciences. The conference will bring together researchers, academicians, scientists and practitioners from Malaysia and abroad to present their latest research findings and share new innovative ideas, knowledge, and technologies related to these three conference topics.

CSSR opens up opportunity for researchers to to share their research outcomes, and expand their networking beyond their own specific field.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all committee members, reviewers, International Advisory Panels, Journal Guest Editors, Journal Guest Editorial Board and IRMI staffs for their great efforts and continuous support in making this conference a success.

Hope you will get the most from this two-day conference. See you in December 2017 at The Pines Hotel Melaka, Malaysia.

Thank you.


Best wishes,
