ABOUT Kei Islands

The islands are on the edge of the Banda Sea, south of the Bird's Head Peninsula of New Guinea, west of the Aru Islands, and northeast of the Tanimbar Islands. The small group called Tayandu Islands (also Tahayad) is just west.. Technically two cities on two islands, Tual on Dullah and Langgur on Kei Kecil are in fact joined by a 300 meter bridge, connected by the city public transportation that runs right through from one to the other, and between them share the Kei Islands main port (in Tual) and airport (in Langgur). As such, they really form a single practical unit that should be treated as one. The two cities have pretty much everything visitors might need in such as supermarkets, internet cafes, travel agencies and a range of accommodation.

Regular flight via Ambon to Langgur by two airlines, Garuda and Wings (Lion Air) twice a day.

ABOUT MSFT 2017

The Tual State Fisheries of Polytechnic (POLIKANT), located in the Kei Islands, Maluku, has the responsibility to develop and help Indonesia to improve its market standing in the marine sector. With regards to this matter, Polikant has organized International Conference on Applied Marine Science and Fisheries Technology (MSFT) which this programs will focus on providing access to the latest research and technology to accelerate the development of sustainable marine and fisheries activities and will focus on coastal areas which have the greatest potential for economic growth. In 2015, POLIKANT hosted the inaugural International Conference on Applied Marine Science and Fisheries Technology (MSFT), under the broad thematic banner of “Enforcing Sustainable Development of Marine Resources of Small Islands”. The intention of the forum was to gain insight into recent advances in fisheries and other relevant marine research from around the world, with a strong focus on applications to small islands. The conference attracted more than 40 speakers from Indonesia, Australia, USA, Sweden, Denmark, Malaysia, Germany and France. Following the success of The 1st MSFT, POLIKANT is pleased to announce the second conference in the biannual series. Once again, MSFT2 will serve as a platform for the exchange of relevant research findings from various fields of marine science and fisheries technology, including socio-economic and business disciplines. We also hope that the forum will promote the sharing of practical experiences in the utilization and management of the marine resources of small islands on an on-going basis.

The 2nd International Conference on Applied Marine Science and Fisheries Technology (MSFT) will be held in Langgur City, Kei Islands, with the broad theme: “Accelerating Sustainable Development of the Marine Resources of Small Islands”. In particular, MSFT welcomes papers that provide insights into how the coastal communities of small islands can deal with current environmental and economic challenges. During APEC 2014, pivotal position the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo affirm pivotal position for global maritime activities. He emphasized Indonesia’s strategic positioning at the confluence of the Indian and Pacific oceans and its consequent importance for ocean-based world trade. Indonesia relies on the ocean for more than trade links, with close association between coastal populations and the large variety of marine resources that supply both food and commercial opportunities. For example, the Maluku region, located in eastern Indonesia is one of the primary suppliers of tuna fish (through the producers Lumbung Ikan Nasional). However, it is clear that, since the formation of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, Indonesia needs to increase its competitive capabilities, especially in the fisheries and marine services sectors.

The Tual State Fisheries of Polytechnic (POLIKANT), located in the Kei Islands, Maluku, has been given the responsibility to develop and support suitable programs that will help Indonesia improve its market standing in the marine sector. In particular, programs will focus on providing access to the latest research and technology to accelerate the development of sustainable marine and fisheries activities, and will focus on coastal areas which have the greatest potential for economic growth.

Conference Objectives

The primary objectives of The 2nd MSFT are to:

  • Take stock of developments on small islands relating to the development of fisheries and marine resources
  • Examine innovative research and technology that can improve the utilization of marine resources
  • Accelerate the sustainable development of small islands
  • Raise awareness about, and seek solutions for, environmental challenges facing coastal communities of small islands
  • Network and provide the opportunity for ongoing collaboration amongst experts in the fields of marine and fisheries science from across the globe.

Topics

The 2nd MSFT aims to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners from various educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests in marine and fisheries science and technology. We extend an invitation for research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation across the following broad research fields:

  • Marine biodiversity and conservation
  • Marine resource exploration and stock assessment
  • Mariculture (for food and the aquarium trade)
  • Socio-economic and commercial aspects of marine resources
  • Marine food processing
  • Oceanography and Marine Technology
  • Marine ecotourism

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations for the International Applied MSFT have been allocated 15 minute slots, of which 5 minutes should be given to questions. It is necessary that these times are strictly adhered to, and that the turnaround time between papers is negligible.

All rooms are equipped with a computer (laptop) and data projector. Presenters should arrive in the session room at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session to load their presentations onto the computer using a USB memory stick. The computers in the session rooms will run MS Windows and be able to display MS Powerpoint or Adobe PDF slides.
