Online Conference

Scientia Academia International Conference (SAICon) is a prestigious event organized with a motivation to provide an excellent international platform for academicians, researchers, engineers, industrial participants, and students around the globe to SHARE their research findings and to EXCHANGE knowledge with global experts to reach maximum visibility and citations. The 5th Scientia Academia International Conference (5th SAICon-2022) is going to be held at Residensi Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This year, the conference will be held online only from August 06-07, 2022. 


The key intention of Scientia Academia is to provide opportunities for global participants to share their ideas and research experiences with peers expected to join from different parts of the world. In addition, this gathering will help the delegates to establish research or business relations as well as find international linkages for future research collaborations. We hope that the 5th SAICon-2022 outcomes will lead to significant contributions to the knowledge base in these up-to-date scientific fields in scope, and will have equal opportunity for publication in indexed journals/proceedings.
