On 11 August 2023, British University Vietnam (BUV) hosted its inaugural national research symposium “Innovation and Challenges in Computing and Innovative Technologies for a Sustainable Future” (ICCIT 2023), a remarkable platform that united researchers, lecturers, students and symbolised BUV’s dedication to research, innovation, and collaboration. 

ICCIT 2023 marked the convergence of 32 leading researchers within Vietnam and made a substantial impact on industry experts and attendees alike. With the theme centred around “Innovation and Challenges in Computer Science and Creative Technology for a Sustainable Future,” ICCIT 2023 was a vibrant platform where more than 42 academic papers were discussed, spanning an extensive spectrum of topics. These ranged from the cutting-edge realms of Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Gaming, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning to thought-provoking discussions on Vietnam’s implementation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).
