    Selamat siang,
    sehubungan dengan conference IRSA 2019, yang rencananya akan dilaksanakan tanggal 22-23 Juli 2019, saya ingin bertanya apakah paper yang dipresentasikan akan proceeding ke Journal International?

    mohon pencerahannya, tks.

      Dear Riki,

      Terimakasih sudah meninggalkan pesan.
      Kita tidak mempunyai dan bekerjasama dengan proceeding/Journal Internasional.
      Paper yang diterima kemudian dipresentasikan tidak akan di terbitkan pada proceeding.
      Sementara ini dulu yang bisa kita informasikan.
