First and foremost, I would like to thank God Almighty for His mercy to make this International Conference in Applied Science and Technology or iCAST 2018 happens in Manado. This conference is driven by Indonesia Polytechnic Director Forum (locale abbrev. FDPNI). As a committee member of the Director Forum who is responsible for Research and Community Service, I give high appreciation to Research and Community Service Coordination Board consisting of 43 Indonesian state polytechnics acting as organizer committee.
