ARICON is proud to announce that the venue for our October 2019 session is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Located in South East Asia, Malaysia gained independence in 1957 from the United Kingdom and developed its economy from primarily being involved in agricultural production to becoming an industrial giant and the lead exporter of electrical appliances and components.
A positive approach towards investment and trade have allowed the Malaysian economy to succeed in generating employment and ultimately, allowing income growth. Malaysia’s economy has taken a sharp turn towards progression after the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997-1998.
Universiti Teknologi MARA Research
MARA, which stands for “Majlis Amanah Rakyat” or the Council of Trust for the Indigenous People took over and strengthened the role and responsibilities of RIDA. In 1966, when the British Institute of Management ceased conducting external examinations, MARA College began running its own Diploma in Business Studies. International recognition for the course came from Ealing Technical College of London, which also became its external examiner. This linkage with an internationally established institution proved to be the first of many future linkages, a tradition that started in 1956 with Dewan Latehan RIDA, and still continues until today in UiTM.
UiTM recognises the importance to highlight UiTM research and researchers at both national and international level. Being the biggest university in Malaysia with a main campus in Shah Alam, Selangor, 13 State Campuses and 21 Satellite Campuses. UiTM introduces a directory where UiTM research information can be easily reached. This is an initiative to bring out the true potential of experts to be recognised to a wider audience, and boost UiTM online academic visibility.

Malaysia - TRULY ASIA
Malaysia also holds great prestige in hosting a multicultural society which includes (according to a census held in 2018) 50.1% Malay, 22.6% Chinese, 11.8% are indigenous Bumiputra groups other than the Malays, 6.7% are Indian, and other groups account for 0.7% of Malaysia’s resident population. This amalgamation of ethnic groups allows Malaysia’s society to consist of diversity in customs, religion, food and culture.
The educational landscape of Malaysia caters to the diversity of the country’s residents as the government highly prioritizes education and has granted it second highest allotment of funds (next to defense). Free compulsory education is available to children from the ages of 6-16, provided with the option of attending another two years free of cost. Bahasa Malaysia is the official teaching language however, English is taught as a compulsory. However, education at the primary level is offered with Chinese or Tamil as the medium of instruction with English and Bahasa Malaysia offered as compulsory subjects.

Why Does ARICON Offer Free Tours During Each Conference?
In an era of globalization and multicultural sensitivity, study abroad programs are mushrooming all over the academic world. They would grow even further if academics had more time and resources to visit worldwide destinations to prepare future study abroad programs for their students. Our conferences offer the perfect opportunity to blend in presentations with organized visits to locations that would make excellent venues for study abroad programs.
Andy Warhol’s traditional fifteen minutes of fame — on the podium — stretch into days of academic interaction and discovery. It defies logic to treat conference venues as isolated academic silos when they may also double up as potential venues for study abroad programs. As a result, we promote each conference as inseparable from its geographical location, history and culture. We work hard to find sponsors in each conference’s geographical area that offer generous hospitality and tourism packages in parallel with our conference presentations.
We make our attendees’ potential clear to our sponsors. Many graduate students and professors who attend academic conferences have a lifelong career in academia in front of them. As a result, each attendee has the potential to multiply the number of future visitors to a conference’s wider geographical area. “We have memories so that we might have roses in December,” wrote Scottish novelist James Barrie.
Without the opportunity to interact and share one’s research and ideas, what is the point of attending an academic conference? There is no shortage of academic papers on the internet and at the libraries within our universities. One doesn’t need a conference to access academic research. Printed academic papers allow the reader to digest carefully instead of chasing a speaker racing against the clock. To understand what a modern conference should be like, we invite you to attend an ARICON conference and experience.
Poster sessions allow delegates to move around the room and discuss their research.
I’d love to attend the ARICON conferences again… I
am interested as at ARICON ZURICH I tend to meet
people from universities and locales around the
world. While there, I got two invitations to speak…
in Netherlands and Turkey.
