Mr. Muhammad Baligh Ur Rehman, Federal Minster of Education, graced the occasion as a Chief Guest on the inaugural session of the conference. While speaking to the audience, he said that it is heartening to know that the C-CODE conference – in the very first year of its launch has attracted a large numbers of researchers from all around the globe and has very high number of submissions. Acceptance rate of about 18%, which is typically achieved in very high standard international technical conferences – is indeed the evidence of research community trust and the success of this conference. He said that in this fast passing century of technology and ideas, in which smart ideas with little or no physical resources have turned into multi-billion organizations – Human resource development is thus essential for any country to progress rapidly. The government of Pakistan is well aware of this fact and is investing in all aspects of human resource development and its management.
