Background of ISASTech

International Symposium on Applied Science and Technology (ISASTech) is an annual conference initiated among academician and students within the Overseas Indonesian Student’ Association Alliance America-Europe Region (OISAA), also called Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesisia se- Dunia Kawasan Amerika-Eropa (PPIDK Amerop). This conference is devoted to discussing current scientific developments on technology and applied sciences topics, to exchange knowledges and experiences amongst academicians or scientists, practitioners and policy makers.


The 1st ISASTech 2020 Istanbul raises a theme of “Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: Contriving the Blueprint to Face Industrial Revolution 4.0 and Society 5.0” as a response of the current trend in industrial, economic, education, agriculture and public sectors which is marked by prevalent uses of digitalized and automatized high-technology tools in every aspects of human life. According to the UNDP Report in 2018, “Industrial Revolution” 4.0 is marked by prevalently usage of automation and artificial intelligence in several aspects of human life, started from manufacturing to the governmental bureaucracy system. At one side, the usage of automated tools and artificial intelligence could optimize the production process and the government service.


However, it also creates serious problems to the society such as: raising unemployment rate, gaps between high and low skilled workforces, and racial-ethic bias from wrong-designed artificial intelligence. 2016 became a momentum when Society 5.0 shared that vision and published officially early 2019.  Society 5.0 present a “super smart society”. Its particular challenges and just as Industry 4.0 are the digital transformation of manufacturing, Society 5.0 aims to tackle several challenges by going far beyond just the digitalization of the economy towards the digitalization across all levels of the society and the digital transformation of society itself. Obviously, in practice, Industry 4.0 and organizations overall will be major components in Society 5.0, yet it’s not the industry alone: it’s about all stakeholders, including citizens, governments, academia and so forth.


These opportunities and challenges raise concerns about the ongoing Industrial Revolution 4.0 on whether it creates benefit or the opposite. With the respect to the ongoing Industrial Revolution 4.0, The 1st ISASTech Istanbul 2020 focuses on the following issues:

  1. Digitalization and Its Impact on The National Economy.
  2. Digitalization of Agriculture, Marine, and Animal Husbandry.
  3. Academic Impacts of Digital Education.
  4. Impact of Digitalization on Art and Culture.
  5. Application of Digital Technology in the Public Sector.

The 1st ISASTech Istanbul 2020 and the SAE Istanbul 2020 are designed to afford delegations to work together, build the network, formulate the ideas, and start resolving the challenges by peer-reviewed research.
