(ICASTCS 2021)

We would like to warmly welcome you to the 1st International Conference on Applied Science and Technology for Community Services (ICASTCS) 2021 at Institute of Research and Community Services, Diponegoro University, Semarang. This conference will be held in virtual platform. The conference is organized by P2KKN, Institute of Research and Community Services, Diponegoro University. In pandemic era, science makes us understand about how the world functions can alter our behaviour. Technology alters how we can behave. Society drives technological innovations and scientific inquiry. Science gives us insight into what kind of technologies we could potentially create and how to create them, while technology allows us to conduct further scientific research. The three domains are so intimately connected that it is sometimes difficult to pull them apart. But understanding how the three relate to each other is important, because each one drives the future of the other. Fact about science, technology, and society as a perfect trifecta has been attempt and materialized in the theme raised in this conference, entitled “Establishing connection between science, technology, and society to encourage a better future in the post-pandemic era”. This conference will be held online on 9 November 2021.

The highlight of ICASTCS 2021 is “Establishing Connection Between Science, Technology, and Society to Encourage a Better Future in the Post-Pandemic Era” Taking into the consideration on the theme, the committee invites participants to submit abstracts/papers in the following category:
