Dear Colleagues,

With great reluctance, it has been decided that ACEC2020 will not be able to go ahead as planned in October 2020. This is because of continuing uncertainties arising from global effects of the Covid19 pandemic. The conference is therefore cancelled. 

This decision has been taken with sadness on all sides as we know so many people were looking forward to attending, presenting and hosting open lessons at the conference. We took the decision in line with other international conferences scheduled for October/November December, so people do not book flights or make arrangements that then have to be cancelled.

I want to thank Professor Sjamsi Pasandaran, Dr. Apeles Lexi Lonto and team at Manado State University and all the members of organising committees for their visionary work, investment and effort in preparing this conference over the past six months. 

The third ACEC 2020 will be filled with Call for Book Chapters, while the conference in Manado will be held in 2021 as the fourth ACEC and the host is Manado State University.

Finally though, and very importantly, I would like to extend my thoughts and wishes to you and to your families, friends and colleagues during this current difficult and for many also sad pandemic. 

Please everyone, stay as safe as you can!


Yours sincerely,

Professor Dasim Budimansyah

The third ACEC Chairperson
