The opening ceremony will be conducted in Auditorium and parallel classes will be organized in nearby classrooms. 
   ICON-SMART is an annual event. It provides a platform to researchers, academicians, professionals, educators, and industries to share and generate interests in cutting-edge research, applications, education, and technology in the related areas of the theme:
Data Optimization for Instrumentation Physics, Food Security, and Energy Sustainability. How About AI?

    After Covid-10 pandemic, food security remains important due to disruptions in global food supply chains and increased vulnerability of populations. Ensuring access to affordable and nutritious food is crucial for recovery, resilience, and social stability. On the other side, energy sustainability is essential to mitigate environmental impacts, promote economic growth, and enhance resilience. Transitioning to sustainable energy sources reduces reliance on finite resources, improves energy security, and contributes to a healthier and more prosperous future. For these two related issues, data optimization is needed for food security and energy sustainability because it enables informed decision-making and efficient resource allocation. By leveraging data analytics and technology, we can enhance agricultural productivity, minimize food waste, and optimize energy usage, leading to more resilient and sustainable food systems. Lately, the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is breath taking. But how can we use AI for this problem? This motivated us in choosing the theme.
   ICON SMART 2023 consists of a plenary sessions with eminent speakers, parallel presentation classes, and a free artificial intelligence (AI) Workshop for Teachers given by professors from Yokohama UNational University, Japan. There will be also field trips with 3 option destinations, will be organized on 22 September 2023.
   So, please join us in Manado and enjoy the conference, the nature, the food, and hospitality.
