On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to the 2021 6th International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets on August 11-13, 2021, i.e. ICMEM 21. ICMEM 21 is a continuation of five previous annual conferences organized successfully by the School of Business and Management, Institut Teknologi Bandung, since 2016.
“Nurturing New Business Landscapes to Embrace the Next Normal” is this year conference’s theme. As the COVID-19 pandemic has passed for more than a year, the business world urges novel, implementable, yet credible insights to find new ways to restore or even reinvent their business. In response, ICMEM 21 will provide a co-creation platform where all stakeholders from academic, business, government, and societies interact through a series of academic research presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches from prominent global business and management think tanks.
ICMEM 21 will host discussions on research works on highly relevant business and management topics ranging from industry 4.0, big data analytics to sustainability issues. High-quality research articles will get an opportunity to be published in SCOPUS indexed conference proceeding or high-ranked national journals. Also, three accompanying events will also be held concurrent with ICMEM 21, i.e. the Indonesia International Conference on Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Small Business (IICIES), the Swiss Innovation Challenge Indonesia (SICA) and the International Graduate Colloquium (IGC). IGC is a forum for graduate students to present and discuss their on-progress research works, such as state-of-the-art research and conceptual model development, empirical findings, etc.
Last but not least, we look forward to warmly welcoming you to ICMEM 21.

Bandung is the capital of West Java in Indonesia. Bandung is 180 kilometers southeast from Jakarta. Although it has a population of over two million the pace of city life is slower than Jakarta's. Today Bandung has a population of 2 million people, Bandung area an estimated 4 million. Bandung is situated on a plateau 768 meters above sea level with a cool climate throughout the year. Bandung is the most European city of Java. The raining season starts in Bandung a little bit earlier, then the rest of Indonesia. Normally the raining season in Indonesia is from October till May, the peak of the raining season is in January. The dry season is from June until August, temperature is then 25-30 degrees Celsius during the day. In the morning, the sun is almost shining every day, but in the afternoon many times it gets cloudy, for sunbathing we have to wake up early from 6.30 the sun is already there. In the evening when the sun is down the temperature has drops. The average temperature in Bandung is 22 degrees Celsius; the weather is pleasant all year round.
There are short drives up to the mountain resorts of Lembang and the Bosscha Observatory, and higher to the volcanic crater of Tangkuban Perahu, the only crater in Java accessible all the way by car as far as its rim. It is an awe-inspiring sight of emanating sulfur fumes. Descent into all the volcano's 12 craters is only possible with the aid of an experienced guide, because of the presence of suffocating gases at certain spots. Just a 15 minutes drive from Tangkuban Perahu is a hot springs resort. Here we can swim in warm mineral water pools, good for healing skin problems. The resort provides visitors with a bar, restaurants, tennis courts and cottage style hotels overlooking a beautiful mountain-scope.
In Bandung, try to see the "Wayang Golek" wooden puppet show and hear the "Angklung" bamboo orchestra, as well as the classical Sundanese gamelan and dances. Several institutes of higher education are located here, including the country's prestigious Bandung Institute of Technology.
