Call for Papers

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Natural and Environmental Science (ICONES) 2019 which will be held in Hermes Palace Hotel, Banda Aceh, Indonesia in July 26-27, 2019. This quinquennial conference is hosted by Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA), Syiah Kuala University (Unsyiah). Previously, the first ICONES was held in 2009 to celebrate 20-year anniversary of FMIPA Unsyiah and the second ICONES was held in 2014.

Under the theme "Sustainable Nature and Environment in the industrial revolution 4.0​", the 3rd ICONES 2019 serves as a platform for professors, researchers, and scholars from universities or research institutes around the globe to exchange ideas, communicate, and discuss on the innovative research findings and advancements as well as latest trends and development in science from multidisciplinary fields.

The conference will include plenary keynote speeches, oral and poster parallel sessions with the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Green and renewable energy
  • Sustainable food
  • Biodiversity Preservation
  • Advanced Material
  • Drug discovery and development
  • Big data for better life

Abstract Submission, Paper Review, and Publications

Please submit your abstract not later than March 31, 2019.  Abstracts should be written in English according to the template provided here and submitted to our conference system.

Prepare your manuscript using the standard conference template provided here. Please double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the European A4-size paper layout (8.27 inch X 11.69 inch).

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Hadi Susanto

Dr. Hadi Susanto was born and grew up in Lumajang, East Java province of Indonesia. He was an undergraduate student (BSc 2001) in the Department of Mathematics of Institut Teknologi Bandung, with a thesis study supervised by Barbera van de Fliert and Edy Soewono. He subsequently did his postgraduate studies (MSc 2003, PhD 2006) in the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Twente under the supervision of Stephan van Gils.

He was a Visiting Assistant Professor (September 2005-December 2007) at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA mentored by Panos Kevrekidis. He was then Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics (January 2008-December 2013) at the School of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Nottingham, UK. From September 2013, he is Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Essex. Per January 2018, he is also Adjunct (Honorary) Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Institut Teknologi Bandung.

His research interests are in theoretical and computational dynamical systems and analysis applied to the study of nonlinear waves in partial and ordinary differential equations. Among others, his aim is to be able to explain and predict novel characteristics of physically motivated systems using various mathematical methods. Of particular interest has been the study of Klein-Gordon equations, nonlinear Schrödinger equations, Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou-type equations, and reaction-diffusion equations, modelling physical reality in many different fields, including biology, condensed matter physics and nonlinear optics.


Assoc. Prof Masatoshi Kondo

Dr. Kondo earned his doctoral program of Science and Engineering Department of Nuclear Engineering Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2006.  Dr. Kondo’s lab, Laboratory for Advanced Nuclear Energy Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Major in Nuclear Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology conducts research in Nuclear fusion studies (Fuel/Blanket, Fusion systems engineering, Low activation material, Inertial confinement fusion). He is actively involved in numerous committee including the Japan Society of Plasma Science and Nuclear Fusion Research and Atomic energy society of Japan.

Prof Dr. Khalija Awang

Dr. Awang completed her doctoral degree at the Universite Rene Descartes, France in 1993 after finishing her master’s degree from University of Malaya in 1991 and bachelor’s degree from Waterloo University, Canada, in 1987. Her research interests are in natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry (natural products, NMR, alkaloids, biological activity, SAR/QSAR, Synthesis/ hemisynthesis. Dr. Awang research involves the chemotaxonomy studies of plants from the Malaysian flora especially from the families of Annonanaceae, Apocynaceae, Meliaceae and Rubiaceae. The biological activities, antiplasmodial, cytotoxicity, antihypertensive of the isolated compounds isolated were also investigated. The structure activity relationship (SAR and QSAR) of potent natural products and hemi-synthesis of natural products analogues are also of our interest together with kinetic studies of bio activity compounds. Currently, she intensifies her investigations on Malaysian medicinal herbs/plants used in the traditional medicine practices leading to the standardization of medicinal plants and bioassay guided studies. Additionally, Dr. Awang is actively involved as a reviewer, PLoS ONE, Phytochemistry, Journal of Natural Products (Journal); a coordinator, French-Malaysian Collaborative Scientific Research Program; and a member, Natural Product Society of Malaysia Associate Member, Malaysian Institute of Chemistry (IKM).

Dr. Teuku M. Iqbalsyah, M.Sc.

Dr. Iqbalsyah is a senior lecturer in Biochemistry at the Faculty of Mathematics and Life Sciences. He got his PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Manchester, UK. His expertise is in the area of protein structure.

He teaches biochemistry-related courses at undergraduate and graduate levels, including Biochemistry, Fermentation Technology, Energy Metabolism and Biochemical Techniques. His current research focus is on novel primary and secondary metabolites produced from locally isolated thermo-halophilic microorganisms. He has authored and co-authored some international and national scientific papers.



Dr. Mohd Hazwan Hussin

Dr. Mohd Hazwan Hussin is currently a senior lecturer at the School of Chemical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia.
