Universitas Brawijaya (UB) becomes the host of The 3rd International Conference on Archives, Social Science, Humanities and Education (IC0ASHE) 2021. This activity is held online for two days, Wednesday-Thursday (27-28/10/2021), with the theme “Digital and Information Governance: Strategic Roles, Challenges and Current Innovations in Higher Education”.
This international conference is an annual program held by Indonesian Higher Education Archives Association (PAPTI), where UB only joined as a member in 2020.
Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, Prof. Dr. dr. Aulanni’am, DES when opening the event expressed her joy over the opportunity for UB to be the host at this young age of membership.
“We are honored to be trusted to host our second year as members of PAPTI. We hope that this conference can enrich our insights and knowledge regarding archives, social sciences, humanities, and education,” she said.
A big university, according to Prof. Aul is not only seen from its high ranking, magnificent building, or qualified facilities, but also good archive management.
“UB has been awarded three times as an Informative State University from the Central Information Commission (KIP). This is one proof that universities will be strong with good archive management. Hopefully this event will be a learning tool to achieve better archive management,” she said.
Good archive management, said the Head of ANRI, Drs. Imam Gunarto, M.Hum requires human resources who are smart, strong, and responsive to changing times and technological developments. “Therefore, this conference is expected to be a forum for transferring archival technology information that can be useful for developing professional and competent archivist Human Resource,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of PAPTI, Prof. Dr. Nandang Alamsah Delianoor, SH., M.Hum hopes that the output of this activity will be international proceedings that have ISSN, Scopus indexed journals or indexed national journals according to the theme of the activity.
The Chief Executive, Dr. Hamidah Nayati Utami, S.Sos., M.Si reported that ICoASHE activities are a means of disseminating and publishing scientific works by academics and archiving practitioners in international forums. In addition, it is also a means of meeting the archives organizers of universities with their supervisory institution, namely ANRI.
