Closing Statement from Chair
I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to keynote and invited speaker as well as all of participants for your willingness to share your time and expertise to this conference. I would like to extend my sincerely gratitude to Rector of Universitas Syiah Kuala for opening address in which he clearly highlighted the importance of this conference. I would like to thank Institute of Research and Community Services (LPPM) Universitas Syiah Kuala for financial supporting of this conference. My thanks go to Dean of Agricultural Faculty for your support, generosity, and flexibility on this conference. Furthermore, I would like to express huge appreciation for the constant support and assistance I have received throughout the conference from all committees (Agricultural Engineering Department, Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Politeknik Aceh Selatan, PUSMEPTAN Universitas Syiah Kuala) and Head of Agricultural Engineering Department, Universitas Syiah Kuala.
The ICATES is annual conference organized by the Department of Agricultural Engineering, Universitas Syiah Kuala, Indonesia. At first, we plan to conduct this conference physically just like previous ICATES in August 2019. However, due to the unforeseen circumstances of global pandemic COVID-19, the ICATES 2020 conference was carried out virtually by zoom meeting platform. We took this option because this conference was already designated and funded. Keynote and invited speakers were also scheduled for this event. Many delegations and authors requested for this conference to be performed, even virtually, since they need it to cover their publication and sharing knowledge requirements.
All accepted papers of the ICATES 2020 will be submitted to IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science indexed by Scopus. All papers were subjected for review in term of format and appropriate contents by two independent reviewers (double-blind review). In total, we received 116 submitted papers through submission system. A total of 114 papers were sent to the reviewers, while 2 submission paper were rejected due to irrelevant topics. A total of 85 papers were accepted for presentations on ICATES 2020.
As the conference chair, I firmly believe that the success of a virtual conference like this event can be achieved by arranging a stimulating program. We sincerely hope that next forthcoming ICATES conference will be conducted lively in touch as previously. Thus, everyone finds the conference is stimulating and enjoying.
