INTRODUCTION


In 2013, Mapúa University hosted the ICSET 2013 and now Mapúa is organizing the ICSET 2018. This conference originated from the Asian Pacific Regional Conference (APRC) organized and held first in 2003 at Chia Nan University of Pharmacy and Science, Taiwan. Delegates from Thailand, Philippines, Japan and Korea participated in this international conference. Following this kickoff conference, the APRC was continually organized at different locations of different countries. The organizing of this APRC was passed to the University of the Philippines, Diliman, in 2006. In 2007, the APRC was rotated to Khon Kaen University, Thailand. Because the University of the Philippines celebrated its 100 - year foundation in 2008, the 6th APRC became a centennial conference held at the main campus in Diliman, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Afterwards, the APRC was hosted by Hanoi University of Technology, Hanoi, Vietnam in 2009, and by Ubon Ratchathani University, Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand in 2010. In 2011, APRC became the International Conference on Sustainable Environmental Technologies (ICSET) and was upgraded into international level. Seoul National University, Korea hosted the ICSET 2011, and King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand hosted the ICSET 2012.
