Message from the IRC Chairman
“SISC is looking forward to welcoming academicians not just from the country but from around the world in this year’s International Research Conference (IRC). The institution believes that research not only expands one’s knowledge and understanding of a particular discipline but also connects like-minded individuals so that they may have a platform to discuss and respond to the current needs of society. We hope to build a community of students, faculty, and industry practitioners and develop fervor for new discoveries and meaningful information sharing and seeking. With the diverse research that we are receiving, this year’s IRC is a truly promising one. We are extremely grateful for the endorsement of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as we join them in their call for more meaningful and useful studies that will uplift our country. Please join us on March 17 and 18 and get ready to share and listen to new perspectives that may enlighten us and expand our worldview.“
