On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to The International Seminar of Science and Applied Technology (ISSAT) which was held virtually on November 24th, 2020. This seminar is organized by Politeknik Negeri Bandung (Polban). It is such an honor and privilege to organize this event where experts and researchers can disseminate their relevant work on applied science and technology to implement 4.0 Industry. The keynote speakers not only had international publication achievements but also had industrialization experience from the results of research conducted in the engineering and non-engineering fields.
This year’s seminar includes two main topics, namely Engineering and Social Science, with the theme “Applied Research for Sustainable Development”. We received 183 manuscripts submitted by authors from various fields. However, after going through several review processes, only 108 high-quality papers were accepted to be presented in this event, with authors coming from 12 countries.
We are honored and delighted to have five keynote speakers in ISSAT 2020 who deserve my sincere thanks, namely Professor Kim Hua Tan of Nottingham University Business School, Professor Farid Nasir Ani of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Professor Tamura Kazuhiro of Kanazawa University, Professor Hermagasantos Zein of Politeknik Negeri Bandung, and Professor Dwi Suhartanto of Politeknik Negeri Bandung.
ISSAT 2020 would not be how it is without the support and advice from various parties. Therefore, I would like to extend my hearty gratitude to Director, Vice Director, Research and Community Development Center head and staff, all staff at Politeknik Negeri Bandung, and all participants for sharing and presenting their research in this seminar. Special thanks go to the scientific committee and reviewers for their valuable work. Most importantly, this conference is supported by a dedicated organizing committee and creative team who deserve my deepest thanks and highest appreciation. This seminar becomes special with the support from Atlantis Press as the publisher of the conference proceeding. I would like to take this opportunity to give sincere gratitude and the highest appreciation to Atlantis Press, and all sponsors that cannot be mentioned one by one for their incredible supports.
