International Conference on Vocational Education Applied Science and Technology (ICVEAST), formerly known as International Conference on Vocation for Higher Education (ICVHE), is an annual event organized by the Vocational Program, Universitas Indonesia, that aims to encourage innovative applied research in vocational higher education. This year we rebranded the conference as we want to focus on being an international forum where scholars and practitioners share their ideas on vocational education, especially within the context of applied science and technology. The rebranding from ICVHE to ICVEAST marks our fifth conference, with the theme, “Attaining Sustainable Development Goals through Innovative Technological Research in Vocational Higher Education”.
