“Green Technology Towards a Knowledge-based Economy”.
The ICAPS 2021 conference, organized by the Faculty of Science, University of Kelaniya with the aim of providing an avenue for both local and international researchers to present their latest advances in green technology that encompasses the spheres of biological, physical, and computer sciences, with potential contribution  to develop a Knowledge-based Economy. This is the sixth consecutive year that the faculty of science has taken lead in organizing ICAPS 2021 and it intends to establish a common platform for academia and industry to share their knowledge, innovations and state of the art on current green technology appropriate for sustainable economic development and to enhance human welfare.  ICAPS 2021 offers 4 tracks or domains to present research findings, innovations and ideas, while devoting an extensive niche for multidisciplinary research. 
Due to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic situation, ICAPS 2021 will be held on a hybrid platform where the participants will be able to participate physically or virtually. Researchers and practitioners are invited to send research abstracts/extended abstracts and full journal articles to make this conference a grand success.
