On behalf of the International Conference on Emerging Trends in Engineering, Management and Sciences (ICETEMS 2018), jointly organized by City University of Science and Information Technology Peshawar, and Karakoram International University, Gilgit, I am pleased to welcome the intending participants. It is a real honor and privilege for me to serve as the Co-Chair of this conference. ICETEMS has really brought together a tremendous and rich diversity of authors and speakers from universities, government and industry around the globe to share ideas and new perspectives on a wide range of communications, engineering and computing research and technologies, addressing new technical and business issues essential to advancing today’s engineering and technological environments.

The popularity of ICETEMS as the premier forum for communications, engineering, business and computing research has started to grow. The ICETEMS has already become a prominent forum, where researchers and practitioners openly exchange ideas and report progress in the exciting area of communications and networking. This year, ICETEMS will deliver a stimulating, informative and delightful program. We greatly value the participations and look forward to the insightful vision and thoughts of the invited speakers. Thanks also go to the distinguished professors, invited talks and participants. I would like to extend my most sincere congratulations to the authors and speakers for their contributions. It is their efforts and vision which provided the impetus to put together this outstanding technical program. The excellence and success of ICETEMS would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors. We greatly appreciate all our sponsors and well-wishers. It is my great honor and pleasure to accept the responsibilities and challenges of Conference Co-Chair. I hope that the conference will be stimulating, informative and enjoyable to all who attend it.
