Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Sustainable Innovation 2019 – Humanity, Education and Social Sciences (IcoSIHESS 2019)

Assalamu’alaykum wr.wb.,

Welcome to the Proceeding of ICoSI 2019 – Social, Humanity and Education Track.

The Third International Conference on Sustainable Innovation 2019 has developed this proceeding. This event was held by Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta. It’s a continuous work from the second one in 2014 which already has been published by Springer ( Unfortunately, the existence of the first conference cannot be traced down to provide the evidence of its continuity.

This book is presenting one track from 3 tracks that are composing the ICoS1 2019. With the theme of “Sustainable Innovation in Disruptive Era”, this conference established two key points of “sustainability” and “innovation” which served as an umbrella theme for the three conference tracks. Indeed, it is not a purpose of simplification to put this vast of scope into one main focus; rather, to put the main theme of sustainability of innovation into view from different aspect of interest, especially related to the more humane dimension.

There are 4 focal conferences under the umbrella of Social, Humanity and Education: International Symposium of Humanity, Education, Religious studies and Social Sciences (ISHERS), International Conference on Islamic Economic and Financial Inclusion (ICIEFI), International Conference on English Language Teaching, Literature and Linguistics, and International Conference on Islamic Studies in Disruptive Era (ICISDE). Indeed, this proceeding book is a showcase of articles presented at the ICoSI 2019 covering various field of research composing of those focal conferences.

This proceeding book consists of 89 articles, comprised of 37 articles from ISHERSs, 18 from ICIEFI, 26 from ICISDE and 8 from ICOELTICS. Although they are coming from various field of research, the basic theme of sustainability and innovation can be shown either explicitly from the title as well as from implicitly from the results of the work. The need to be sustainable and innovative is discussed variedly in the field of Management (e.g. “Why Companies Are Not Always Adopting Sustainable Innovation?”), Economics (“Creative Industry’s Startup: How Can Investors Indicate Important Factors to Fund It?”), Financial (“How Does Islamic Financial Technology Influence Debtors’ Preference in Islamic Rural Bank”),vor Education (eg. “The Boarding University Strategy in Developing E-Learning Based Multimedia Instructional”, “A Systematic Review of Digital Literacy Training for High School Students”, “Blended Learning as a Means of Promoting Autonomous and Collaborative Learning Experiences”), or Social (eg. “CSR for Child Poverty: Challenging Policy in Disruptive Era”, “The Determinants of the Sustainable Slum Beautification Program”).

In the production of this valuable work, let me convey my gratitude. First of all, to Allah swt, the mighty God, who has given the blessing, so this event has accomplished fruitful. To the Rector of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, especially for the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs who has taken the responsibility to assure this event was accomplished successfully. To all the participants who have share their ideas and effort to presenting their works. To all faculty members of UMY; Dean and Vice Dean, who have supported us in encouraging and supporting their faculty members in presenting their works. To all supporting staff of UMY in assuring the event was running very well. Last but not least, to all committee members of ICoSI, for their great effort and dedication; especially for the vice chairpersons who have given their full support, considering my paucity of experience and knowledge in conducting such a great event. For me they are not only associates but also the best of friends. Friends who have been spent the last year of sweat and tears to assure all preparation has done perfectly, almost. Just an expression, since there is no perfection in this earthy world, except in Jannah; the day after. Thus, hopefully, Allah would give you all the best of rewards there, in syaa Allah.

Wassalamu’alaykum wr.wb.
