The main theme of this symposium is “Local resources empowerment towards advance, smart and sustainable system” as a part of the United Nations agenda for sustainable development goals in 2030. Therefore, we present you, four world-class keynote speakers whom able to capture the interdependence between these scientific topics. First, Professor Tony Lucey from Curtin University, Australia. Second, Professor Noorefendi Tamaldin from UTEM, Malaysia. Third, Mr Rajesh Ranolia from NIIT, India. Fourth, Yun Fatimah, PhD, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Muhammadiyah Magelang.

Let me inform you that the 1st BIS-HESS 2019 has received 344 submissions from 7 countries: India, Philippines, China, Malaysia, Japan, United States, and Indonesia. Each paper has been reviewed by the program committee. Only 257 papers were accepted for the round table session (acceptance rate: 74.71%). All the published papers have been through a series of rigorous review process to meet the requirements and standards of international publication.

We hope that our later discussion may result transfer of experiences and research findings from participants to others, from one institution to another, from social researcher to engineering researcher and vice versa. Also, I hope this event can build a new and strong research network.

We would like to thank each co-host for the efforts to give significant contribution particularly on paper selection. We would also like to acknowledge the rector of Universitas Muhammadiyah Magelang for the endless support to the conference. Last but not least, we would like to express our most sincere gratitude to the international advisory board, scientific committee, steering committee, organizing committee, and everybody taking parts in the success of the conference.
