Conference name: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Informatics, Technology and Engineering 2023 (InCITE 2023)
Date: 14-15 September, 2023
Location: Yogyakarta, Indonesia (Hybrid)

We proudly present the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Informatics, Technology, and Engineering 2023 (InCITE 2023), published as part of the Atlantis Highlights in Engineering series. The conference was successfully held in a hybrid setting on September 14–15, 2023, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. InCITE 2023 is organized by the Faculty of Engineering, University of Surabaya (UBAYA). The conference theme, “Adaptive, Resilient & Collaborative Engineering: Towards Faster Recovery & Impactful Solutions,” set the stage for insightful discussions and breakthroughs across four key tracks: engineering design and innovation, manufacturing and engineering processes, power systems and energy management, and IT for innovation enhancement.

During InCITE 2023, we had the privilege of hosting five distinguished keynote speakers who shared their expertise on critical topics. One speaker emphasized the influential role of strategic design in eliciting specific emotions, showcasing its potential to drive consumer behavior and inspire positive environmental actions. Another introduced an innovative framework that combined affect/Kansei-based design principles, design thinking, and sustainability approaches, offering a holistic methodology for product/service improvement. Thailand’s adaptive and resilient use of technology during the COVID-19 pandemic was another keynote highlight. This speaker emphasized the role of online education, remote work tools, e-commerce platforms, collaboration software, and information-sharing applications in helping citizens endure and recover from the crisis. Additionally, one keynote explored the versatile applications of pillared interlayered clays (PILCs) as eco-friendly adsorbents and catalysts, emphasizing their alignment with green chemistry principles for sustainable pollutant removal and catalytic reactions. Lastly, a keynote speaker delved into the potential benefits and challenges of implementing 6G-based vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) within intelligent transportation systems (ITS), emphasizing improved communication capabilities, enhanced reliability, and the importance of addressing security vulnerabilities.

InCITE 2023 attracted 67 submissions from authors from diverse countries such as Indonesia, Netherlands, Australia, South Korea, Bangladesh, and Vietnam, where 53 papers were selected for presentation, which was divided into nine parallel sessions. These papers reflect the high quality and global relevance of the research shared, underscoring the conference’s role as a catalyst for interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge exchange.

We extend our sincere gratitude to our keynote speakers, diligent reviewers, dedicated organizers, and talented authors for their invaluable contributions to the success of InCITE 2023. The collaborative spirit, innovative ideas, and scholarly excellence showcased at this conference reaffirm our commitment to advancing engineering, technology, and informatics. Finally, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Atlantis Press Editorial Board for their valuable contributions and unwavering support throughout the preparation of the proceedings.
