ICOQSIA 2020


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING COVID-19 OUTBREAK

On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the risk and impact of COVID-19 to be very high and thus has characterized the current COVID-19 situation as ‘Global Pandemic’. As your safety is our top priority, we have decided to make new arrangements to ensure that ICOQSIA2020 still proceeds, albeit with the addition of some exciting new features. ICOQSIA2020 will be rescheduled to 13-14th October 2020 at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM).

After much deliberation, we have agreed to conduct the conference virtually, as an alternative to the conventional oral presentations. In essence, two presentation modes will be offered to our participants: in-person presentation (in-house participants only) and virtual presentation. Moreover, two-way interaction between the presenter and the audience may be conducted live through online platform and chat room function. All registered participants must ensure they have sufficient internet connection during the conference period.

Please check for the latest fees and revised important due dates. Full registration fee covers the conference package, which includes:

  • 8-10 mins presentation slot
  • Technical support
  • Program e-book
  • Engagement with audience
  • Access to other parallel slots
  • E-certificate for presenter
  • Evaluation by panel of experts
  • Conference abstract e-book
  • Scopus publication (accepted status)

As in all its previous assemblies, ICOQSIA2020 promises to inspire, uplift and enrich its audience, in spite of the challenges that we face in our battle against COVID-19. Do mark the dates of the conference in your calendar. We are looking forward to welcoming you to ICOQSIA2020 this October. Stay safe and stay connected.

Thank you for your attention.


WELCOME NOTE BY CHAIRPERSON

On behalf of the ICOQSIA2020 Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to warmly invite you to the 6th International Conference on Quantitative Sciences and its Applications (ICOQSIA 2020). This year’s conference which will be held on 13-14 October 2020 will continue its tradition in providing numerous opportunities for informal networking, consultation and research collaboration among academics, researchers and quantitative practitioners. ICOQSIA2020 will reflect on new approaches, future trends and challenges in quantitative sciences, with a general purpose in igniting new directions for future research and development in theories and applications of quantitative sciences.

This conference will feature reputable keynote speakers from industries and academia, and participants will have an opportunity to share, discuss, and dissect significant new developments and scientific advancements with various experts in the field of quantitative sciences as well as other related fields. Thus, this conference will be an impactful event which guarantees an invaluable, enriching and inspiring experience for all its participants.

To ensure safety of the highest level as well as ease of convenience for ICOQSIA2020 participants during this unfortunate uncertainties of the COVID -19 outbreak, this conference will be conducted via virtual presentation which will take place at Universiti Utara Malaysia.
