The Kei Islands are islands formed of coral consisting of more than 130 small islands and are located between the deep Banda sea as a tuna migration area and the Arafura Sea as the largest shrimp fishing area in the world. The Kei Islands are also located in the world coral triangle.
There are two autonomous governments, namely the municipality of Tual whose capital is Tual, and the Southeast Maluku Regency whose capital is Langgur. The two capitals of the autonomous region are on two different islands connected by a 300 m long bridge that passes through the Rosenberg Strait. The Kei Islands can be reached by flights from all over Indonesia in a day. Regular flights via Ambon to Langgur by two airlines, Garuda and Wings (Lion Air) twice a day.
The Kei Islands were awarded by the Indonesian government in 2016 as Indonesia's hidden paradise for having unique and beautiful beaches and coral reefs.
The Tual State Fisheries Polytechnic (POLIKANT), located in the Kei Islands, Maluku, has one mission to help Indonesia improve its economy in the marine and fisheries sector. In connection with this, Polikant has organized the International Conference on Applied Marine Technology and Fisheries Technology (MSFT) which focuses the discussion on providing access to the latest research and technology to accelerate the development of a sustainable marine and fisheries sector. In 2015, POLIKANT held the inaugural International Conference on Applied Marine Sciences and Fisheries Technology (MSFT), with the general theme "Enforcing Sustainable Development of Small Island Marine Resources". The aim of this forum is to gain insight into the latest advances in the field of marine and fisheries science with a focus on its application to the development of small islands in a sustainable manner. The conference attracted more than 40 speakers from Indonesia, Australia, the US, Sweden, Denmark, Malaysia, Germany and France.
The 2nd International Conference on Applied Marine Science and Fisheries Technology (MSFT) was held in Langgur City, Kei Islands, in 2017, with a broad theme: "Accelerating Sustainable Development of Small Island Marine Resources". In particular, MSFT has succeeded in discussing 50 papers that provide insight into how coastal communities in small islands can accelerate the development of the marine and fisheries sector in a sustainable manner.
After the success of the second MSFT in 2017, POLIKANT is pleased to announce the third conference in the biennial series. Again, the 3rd MSFT will serve as a platform for exchanging relevant research findings from various fields of marine science and fisheries technology. We also hope that this forum will become a venue for sharing practical experiences in sustainable use and management of marine resources.
The 3rd International Conference on Applied Marine Science and Technology (MSFT) will be held in Langgur City, Kei Islands, with a general theme: "Marine Resources for a Sustainable Future: Global and Local Challenges" . In particular, MSFT welcomes papers that provide insight into how coastal communities on small islands can face both global and local environmental and economic challenges.
The primary objectives of The 3rd MSFT are to:
The 3rd MSFT Invites various parties to submit research papers which include conceptual analysis, design implementation, and performance evaluation in the following research topics:
