Our Conference provides opportunities to network across geographically dispersed research communities, sharing research ideas and helping build a robust knowledge base. The diversity of presentations and the different local contexts they reflect all help refine our understandings of the key issues under debate.

Mathematics, science, and education have gained huge attention from the Indonesian government because of their potential role in the strategic development direction of the country. As the consequence, mathematics, science, and education research, as well as all activities which promote its results like the ICoMSE 2017 possess a pivotal role in the development of universities and the country accordingly. We at Universitas Negeri Malang have been working on things which have been the common concern of the world's leading universities: innovation, internationalization, and publication from interdisciplinary research.
Taking an example, we are developing research centers, the center of innovation which is being funded by IDB are among the process to reach the goals. However, all the results from any research should be published and shared so everyone who shares the common interests can follow, develop and discuss it. This ICoMSE 2017 is designated to promote our research interests, knowledge sharing, and transfer, as well as to improve our common ground of science and technology.
