Digitalization and Opportunities in the Tough Time


The 4th International Conference on Business, Economics, Social Sciences, and Humanities (ICOBEST) will be held on November 18th, 2021, in Bandung with the online format. It is aimed to bring together academia, researchers, and scholars to exchange information and share experiences and research results in related fields. This event provides an opportunity for all to network, share ideas and present their research to a worldwide community. Discussion on the latest innovations, trends and practical concerns, and challenges in these fields are also encouraged.

We have witnessed the global changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Covid-19 has reshaped most of the way we communicate, study, do business, and even conduct research digitally. This condition has proven that the digitalization of almost all aspects in life is widely used as we move forward and adapt with the current situation. As the digitalization grows bigger, new opportunities are emerging.

To gain a better understanding of the big-picture implication, it is reasonable to build optimism and share the idea to overcome a multidimensional crisis. Therefore, in line with the above, Universitas Komputer Indonesia organized the 4th international conference on Business, Economics, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
