The theme for this virtual conference is Transforming Innovation Into Opportunities: Embracing IR 4.0, which parallels PKK as the Centre of Technology (COT). Our motto “IT Teras Entiti” indicates our expertise in Information Technology as a critical element in the 4.0 Industry. IBIEC has adopted a virtual platform for innovators to present their innovations and share knowledge with panels from the industry and academicians.
