International Conference on Community Development (ICCD) is an annual conference held since 2012, when the Association of Muslim Community in ASEAN (AMCA) was established. In 2021, the 8th ICCD is held by inviting scholars and practitioners around the globe to discuss community development from various perspectives and across fields of study. One of the key topics discussed is how Covid-19 affects our life and how to solve any problems associated with it.
The 8th ICCD was conducted virtually, which was presented in a different and better way. A conference is commonly held for about three to five days. In contrast, ICCD-8 was conducted for about three months from September-November 2021 in order that the presenters and participants have more time to discuss every single issue in detail. Every week there was only 1 series, consisting of 5 presenters and 1 international keynote speaker to discuss certain issues, and it ran for 8 series. In the end, one day session was held to invite some more international speakers for a plenary session, and was continued with 6 parallel sessions. More than 700 participants totally attended it. The ICCD-8 also equipped the participants with a workshop on article writing to encourage the participants to publish qualified articles in reputable international journals. The presenters and participants are from 7 countries in ASEAN such as; Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, The Philippines, Thailand, and Cambodia. Any input you think would make ICCD better now and in the future, we want to hear it!
