 Abstract Submission

This conference is aimed to create an inclusive forum for exchange of ideas, a progressive hub for professional and academic networking as well as an alternative outlet for publishing your latest works. While full paper submission is optional, prospective presenters first need to submit abstracts, so that the submissions will be considered for the conference. Abstract should consist of background, purpose and potential contributions, data and methodology, results, conclusion and keywords. Abstracts must be submitted in English, as also the full paper.

When uploading your abstract, you will be asked to choose the following options:

[A]. You will only do oral presentation at the conference. In this case, it is not obligatory to upload your full paper. Your submission will be included in the Abstract repository (online and offline) of the conference, if accepted.

[B]. You would like your submission to be considered for publication in the conference proceedings published in a Scopus indexed proceeding and/or Journal of Regional and City Planning (JRCP – Jurnal Perencanaan Wilayah dan Kota; indexed by DOAJ with green thick; accredited by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education). In this case, you need to submit your full paper and follow the next review and publication processes. Only submissions that meet academic requirements and the deadline will be invited to the further processes.

How to Submit? 

All submissions are managed through the ConfTool conference management system. Abstract should be submitted online via Conftool by 6 March May 2020.
