A two-day 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Technologies for Industry 4.0 (STI 2020) is going to be held at Green University of Bangladesh (GUB) during 19-20 December 2020.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering, Green University of Bangladesh will organize the conference at permanent Campus of GUB, Purbachal American City, Rupgonj with a view to get ready for facing challenges of fourth industrial revolution.

Due to current mobility restrictions and health safety issues, the presenters and speakers will also be connected online in the virtual rooms of the conference.

The 1st event of STI 2019 gathered around 12 distinguished keynote speakers, 200+ authors, 100+ senior academicians, 30+ industry practitioners from 20+ countries of the World.

Approximately 500 researchers and faculty members from different national and international universities are expected to participate in the event online or onsite and promote their works through this platform to thousands of international students and academics within similar research domains.

STI aims to become one of the topnotch global conferences in the field of Industry 4.0 in the coming years.
Three different tracks included in STI-2020 are Intelligent Computing, Network and Security Systems; Energy, Robotics, Electronics, Sensors and Communications; and Textiles, and other Industry 4.0 applications.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Three papers would be selected for the “Best Paper” award. There will also be a “Best Poster” award for poster presentation.

Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Razzaque, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of GUB and General Chair of the Conference said that the Industry 4.0 refers to the Fourth Industrial Revolution that encompasses smart industries, smart grids, intelligent transportation, real-time healthcare, etc. bolstered by automation and cyber-physical systems.

He added that the aim of the STI conference is to establish a network of researchers and practitioners in the diverse fields of Industry 4.0 (IR4.0). It envisions to develop a platform for scholarly discussions and exchange of innovative ideas in the related fields. It opens up an avenue for discussing over the research findings and sharing regarding the design and implementation issues, and challenges of sustainable technologies those will be worked as driving forces in the fourth industrial revelation.

He said, the details discussion will be held on the strategies to face the challenges of the fourth industrial revelation and making bridge between the industry and academia. World renowned domain experts in the emerging fields related to IR4.0 will deliver their talks in the conference. Prof. Claudio A.

Canizares (IEEE Fellow, University of Waterloo, Canada) will focus on smart grid systems, Prof. Rajkumar Buyya (IEEE Fellow, University of Melbourne, Australia) will explore the challenges and opportunities of Cloud and Edge Computing, and Prof. Vincent Wong (IEEE Fellow, University of British Columbia, Canada) will deliver his speech on 5G Internet architecture and emerging application services. Prof. Hussein Abbas (IEEE Fellow, University of New South Wales, Australia) will explore the power of Artificial Intelligence in changing the business models in the future workplaces.

More keynote speakers for the event will be announced very soon on the website ( The Committees of STI 2020 are formed with the participation of domain scholars as well as academic and industrial leaders from the different corners of the world.

For the first time in Bangladesh, an international AI-based Dhaka Traffic Detection Challenge funded by Elsevier AIJ would be co-organized during STI 2020. Students having knowledge and skills on artificial intelligence and machine learning systems from different private and public universities of the country are expected to participate this competitive event.

The STI 2020 also includes a tutorial on “Education 4.0 – Ways to Move Ahead with Innovative Technology (EDU 4.0 Tech)”. The COVID-19 has revealed, how technology can support the whole education system of the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has enforced university graduates to accept the challenges, increasing the demand of technology-driven education system known as Education 4.0 emphasizing on parallelism, connectivity, visualization, and production of knowledge rather than instructivism only.

A tutorial on such a timely topic is a new feather of STI 2020, the General Chair noted. He invites all related professionals, practitioners and students to put their scholarly contributions to STI 2020 and to take part in discussion sessions.
