Proceedings of the 1st UMGESHIC International Seminar on Health, Social Science and Humanities (UMGESHIC-ISHSSH 2020)

The first Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik Engineering, Social Science, and Health International Conference was held in Gresik, Indonesia virtually using Zoom Conference as the supporting platform on 9-10 December 2020. The conference was co-hosted by 6 higher education institutions and three industries and entreprizes.

Over four hundred participants from different countries are gathered at this conference and around three hundred papers are presented. Nine keynote speakers from six countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, United States, Iraq, and Oman) are invited. Their presentation provided a very good impact on enhancing human resources in the health, social science and humanities field during Covid-19 pandemic. A special session for group discussions namely a parallel session was arranged to allow extended interchange of ideas and deepen knowledge among researchers.

The success of this international conference was due to the collective supports and efforts of many individuals. The members of the University Research center in Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik helped greatly in hosting this conference. The great acknowledgment is also extended to the Rector and Vice-Rectors of the University for their dedicated support. Special thanks to all committees for their sincerity to organize this conference. Without those contributions, the conference will not achieve a new reputation.

We are aware that there are still many shortcomings in the process of succeeding this conference. Therefore, we sincerely hope for criticism and suggestions for the improvement of our next conference.
