The affiliation of each author must also appear. For foreign authors, please include the countries in the affiliations. The corresponding author email is preferred using institutional email address.
The abstract is limited to 150–200 words and cannot contain equations, figures, tables, or references. It should concisely state the aim of the research, method/approach used, principal results, and their significance. For paper that written in Bahasa Indonesia you need to write two abstracts i.e. in English and in Bahasa Indonesia.
The author shall provide up to 10 keywords to help identify the major topics of the paper.
Nomenclature (if needed)
A nomenclature list should precede the Introduction.
Introduction consist of background or problem and its significance of the research. It also should clearly states the purpose of the research, gap analysis and hypothesis (if any). When describing gap analysis please provide references for other related previous works and clearly state the position of the research to other literature.
This section explain detail of the research methods. The detail must sufficient for other to reproduce the research.
Results and discussions
The section address connections between findings and basic concepts or hypothesis made earlier. Authors should also express whether any arguments were needed relating to other works from other researchers. Write implications made by the work related to theoretical or applications. Write results in logical sequence.
The conclusion should be linked to the title and objectives of the study. Do not make statements not adequately supported by your findings. Do not use bulleted points, use paragraphed sentences instead
Appendix (if needed)
Appendixes appear before the acknowledgment.
Acknowledgment (if needed)
Financial support should be stated in acknowledgment. For example: This work was supported in part by the Indonesian Department of XXX under Grant BS123
