There are many matters that cannot usefully be examined in ascientific way. There are, for instance, beliefs that—bytheir very nature—cannot be proved or disproved (such as theexistence of supernatural powers and beings, or the true purposesof life). In other cases, a scientific approach that may be validis likely to be rejected as irrelevant by people who hold tocertain beliefs (such as in miracles, fortune-telling, astrology,and superstition). Nor do scientists have the means to settleissues concerning good and evil, although they can sometimescontribute to the discussion of such issues by identifying thelikely consequences of particular actions, which may be helpfulin weighing alternatives.

Science also assumes that the universe is, as its nameimplies, a vast single system in which the basic rules areeverywhere the same. Knowledge gained from studying one part ofthe universe is applicable to other parts. For instance, the sameprinciples of motion and gravitation that explain the motion offalling objects on the surface of the earth also explain themotion of the moon and the planets. With some modifications overthe years, the same principles of motion have applied to otherforces—and to the motion of everything, from the smallestnuclear particles to the most massive stars, from sailboats tospace vehicles, from bullets to light rays.

Even so, scientists can seldom bring definitive answers tomatters of public debate. Some issues are too complex to fitwithin the current scope of science, or there may be littlereliable information available, or the values involved may lieoutside of science. Moreover, although there may be at any onetime a broad consensus on the bulk of scientific knowledge, theagreement does not extend to all scientific issues, let alone toall science-related social issues. And of course, on issuesoutside of their expertise, the opinions of scientists shouldenjoy no special credibility.

In their work, scientists go to great lengths to avoidbias—their own as well as that of others. But in matters ofpublic interest, scientists, like other people, can be expectedto be biased where their own personal, corporate, institutional,or community interests are at stake. For example, because oftheir commitment to science, many scientists may understandablybe less than objective in their beliefs on how science is to befunded in comparison to other social needs.

Scientists can bring information, insights, and analyticalskills to bear on matters of public concern. Often they can helpthe public and its representatives to understand the likelycauses of events (such as natural and technological disasters)and to estimate the possible effects of projected policies (suchas ecological effects of various farming methods). Often they cantestify to what is not possible. In playing this advisory role,scientists are expected to be especially careful in trying todistinguish fact from interpretation, and research findings fromspeculation and opinion; that is, they are expected to make fulluse of the principles of scientific inquiry.

Fundamentally, the various scientific disciplines are alike intheir reliance on evidence, the use of hypothesis and theories,the kinds of logic used, and much more. Nevertheless, scientistsdiffer greatly from one another in what phenomena theyinvestigate and in how they go about their work; in the reliancethey place on historical data or on experimental findings and onqualitative or quantitative methods; in their recourse tofundamental principles; and in how much they draw on the findingsof other sciences. Still, the exchange of techniques,information, and concepts goes on all the time among scientists,and there are common understandings among them about whatconstitutes an investigation that is scientifically valid.

Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, North Woodstock, NH

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate “5th International Conference on Computational and Experimental Science and Engineering (ICCESEN 2018)”. After successful four organisations of , , and we will be happy to host you in ICCESEN-2018. ICCESEN-2018 will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and expertise of the students, researchers and also industrial community. This international conference covers highlights about new results in the wide spectrum of categories from natural science and engineering in theory, methods and applications. The participants will have the opportunity to take part in the presentation of plenary lectures, contributed papers of both oral and poster session types, and of their scientific discussions. Those will be done in 10 different topics which will be presented in a different themes and sessions.
