NRCP to gather its researchers at Visayas Regional Cluster Assembly

The National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) will bring together 180 member-researchers at the 2024 Annual Scientific Conference (ASC) and the 21st Visayas Regional Cluster (VRC) Assembly in Bacolod City on 23 July 2024.

This year’s theme emphasizes the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in research, with researchers to learn more about the connections of AI and multidisciplinary scientific research.

This gathering adopts the NRCP annual scientific conference theme Artificial Intelligence for Responsive Transdisciplinary Research towards a Sustainable Scientific Future, with focus from precision agriculture to educational applications and fisheries sustainability. The discussions will be delivered by academics from Cebu Technological University, Cebu Normal University, and UP Visayas. These sessions aim to provide participants with up-to-date information on the challenges and opportunities presented by AI in their respective fields.

In line with the National Economic Development Authority’s (NEDA) research agenda, the conference will address three objectives: enhancing the capabilities of individuals and families, transforming production sectors for job creation and competitiveness, and fostering a resilient and inclusive society.

Dr. Prospero C. Naval Jr., Professor at UP Diliman, who will serve as keynote speaker will set the stage with insights into the conference theme.

Apart from the knowledge exchange, the conference will serve as a platform for the NRCP’s regional members to engage in academic interactions, share research updates, and participate in a scientific poster exhibit and competition. The event will conclude with a general membership business meeting, the announcement of competition winners, and the oath-taking ceremony for newly approved members.

NRCP is a collegial body of highly-trained researchers, scientists, engineers, and artists who help in meeting the demand for knowledge, skills and innovations in the field of sciences, technology, humanities, and the arts.

This event is in partnership with DOST Regional Office No. VI. (Jenny Leigh A. Daquioag, S&T Media Service)
