The 4th Research, Invention, and Innovation Congress (RI2C 2023)

The Conference Committee and King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 4th Research, Invention, and Innovation Congress (RI2C 2023), which will be organized by Science and Technology Research Institute (STRI) of the KMUTNB, during August 24-25, 2023. The RI2C 2023 aims to find out and share in the new knowledge, also to contribute an Innovation for Better Life. We invite all those wishing to participate to submit a full paper to present their work, which can be an oral presentation through one of the official topics. The online poster presentation is also available this event. We would like to invite KMUTNB’s collaborators worldwide to attend the RI2C 2023 to exchange their experiences and re-vow our relationship in academic and research affairs. With the experience of previously running three successful events, we are confident that the year 2023 will witness an even greater success of the RI2C 2023.

Due to the severe impact of the epidemic, the health and safety of our participants are our top priority. The organizing committee will support the online attendance and online registration. The details of conference program will be updated soon.

Assoc.Prof.Dr. Eugene Kowch (University of Calgary, CANADA)
Dr. Eugene Kowch is an Associate Professor in the Leadership, Policy & Governance specialization at the Werklund School of Education. His students learn from research to build up leaders who lead systemic change in complex, more adaptable learning institutions and organizations. Better life working together by taking a complex ecosystem perspective on leadership, policy and governance is the goal. As one of few transdisciplinary international scholar/leaders integrating learning environment design with education organization and next-generation leadership/admin theory, his teaching, writing, and service builds leadership capacity and capability by integrating technology-enhanced learning environment (learning science) design thinking with complex adaptive learning organization thinking to support next-generation leaders and policymakers facing constant, unpredictable change in thriving education ecosystems.
His numerous leadership roles in professional associations, industry, K-12 and university education systems, and research teams around the world focus on Asia, SE Asia, North and Central America, Africa, and Europe. Prior to joining the University of Calgary, his professional practice in the energy sector and education sectors began as a petrophysicist and reservoir engineer at the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas (Nexen/CNOOC: China National Offshore Oil) Corporation. While pursuing a B.Com degree, he was invited to join Unocal (Chevron) Canada’s head offices to lead international, mega-project exploration, development, and corporate development (M&A) globally. Seeking to help lift the public sector with this experience, he attained a B.Ed. (Great Distinction), MA (Curriculum Studies) and Ph.D. (Education Administration) degrees at the University of Saskatchewan while working as a K 12 teacher, principal (Head), and Deputy Superintendent of Schools. Joining the university in 2002, as a professor in the Werklund School of Education Dr. Kowch has graduated over a dozen doctoral student supervisees with scores of master's degree student researchers focused on education innovation, systems thinking and innovation leadership research for more adaptable education ecosystems. He pioneered the development of online education doctoral programs, now teaching both on-campus and online undergraduate and graduate (MA, MEd, EdD & Ph.D.) advanced courses in; education organization change and design, leadership development, transdisciplinary learning, innovation leadership, leadership capacity building, organization adaptability, and research methods. He has served as a Graduate Program Director and as Chair of the Leadership, Policy & Governance unit, and as Chair of the University of Calgary research committees such as the SSHRC Engage Partnership, SUPPORT, and SSHRC Faculty Seed Grant Committees, as well as the General Faculty Council Student Appeals Committee. Dr. Kowch has edited a recent major reference work (Book) on Systems Thinking and Change (Springer Nature) and chaired several large international conference planning teams while producing over 150 publications, workshops, and 19 invited keynote addresses offered in over 14 countries to millions interested in leading innovation and artificial intelligence in education. Most recently, he leads research to help education leaders, teachers, universities, and communities to learn and lead the coming energy transition with solar and geothermal innovation.
