International Conference on Sustainable Expert Systems [ICSES 2021] is a refereed conference with a primary focus on the research information related to Artificial Intelligence [AI], Sustainability, and Expert Systems applied in almost all the areas of industries, government sectors, and educational institutions worldwide. The main thrust of the conference is to publish the papers that deal with the design, implementation, development, testing, and management of intelligent and sustainable expert systems and also to provide both theoretical and practical guidelines for the deployment of these systems. ICSES 2021 will provide an opportunity for the researchers to present their research results and examine the advanced applications in Artificial Intelligence [AI] and the expert systems field. The advanced research discussions in ICSES 2021 will facilitate new research pathways and drive innovations in the sustainable expert systems domain. This conference aims to collect recent advances in the research and development of sustainable expert systems with a particular focus on their significant role in elevating the innovations in Artificial intelligence. ICSES 2021 has been planned to bring the researchers, academicians, and industrialists to establish a common research platform and involves in a discussion to derive the solution for various engineering challenges in a sustainable perspective. In general, the conference has diverse themes with a central idea of sustainable engineering solutions.
Nepal being the landlocked country in the northern hemisphere and sandwiched between two Asian giants: China and India, has the glory of having world's highest mountain- Sagarmatha (Everest) and being the birth place of Lord Buddha- Light of Asia. The beauty of the country is extreme diversity within close proximity of topography, ecology, flora and fauna. Owing to the topography and people, Nepal has rich cultural heritage. Visualizing the economy, Nepal is in the process of transformation. The concern now is the development of the country and prosperity of the people. Prosperity is not only the material well-being; it is building capacity of the people with rights and responsibility. Institute of Engineering (IOE) visioned to be instrumental to achieve this national goal of prosperity of the country and the people. This can be done by producing capable and competitive engineering graduates. Engineering education has two dimension; skill developing and capital formation. Both are equally important for the economic growth of the country. As the world is moving towards knowledge based economy, all the nations are entering into 'global skill race'. In this race, education knowledge and skills are assuming ever-greater importance. Understanding this essence, IOE is striving to move forward with market relevant programs and research works.
