The 2018 conference theme is “Sharpening the Capability of Electrical, Electronics, Information Engineering, and Vocational Education Toward Industry 4.0”
Industry 4.0 (I4.0) has now been used to coin automation to the next level to include interoperability, information transparency, technical assistance, and decentralized decision making. The challenges include data security, reliability, stability, integrity, technological, and human/social and educational issues. Although still an ideal, I4.0, will come into reality. This becomes a challenge for electrical, electronics, information engineering, and vocational education: where we are now, and where we are going.

About Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta
Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (UNY) is a university conveniently located in Sleman District of the Yogyakarta Special Territory. Despite its relatively new status as a university, UNY still maintains a strong reputation as an educational institution which not only produces professional teachers and caters for the education sector but has now expanded into the fields of non-educational sector together in each faculty. In view of that, in order to have scientific encounters of inter-disciplines in educational and non-educational fields and to produce professional and qualified teachers besides qualified graduates of non-educational programs, UNY consciously and responsibly continues to improve itself, both internally and externally. Internally, the academic members of UNY continually work to consolidate and qualitatively improve its human and non-human resources. Externally, UNY tries to extend the cooperation networks to related parties in local, regional, national, and international levels.
Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (UNY) has been established as part of the dynamic organizational development of Indonesian higher educational institutions in response to fast-changing societal demands. It is shown in the dynamic changes of its organization structure, starting from its establishment in 1964 until nowadays.
Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (originally IKIP Yogyakarta) was founded on 21st May 1964. IKIP Yogyakarta was a merger of two educational institutions: the Faculty of Pedagogy of Gadjah Mada University and the Teacher Education Institute. These two institutions catered for education science and teacher education. The merger itself was regulated by the Presidential Decree of the Republic of Indonesia Number I/1963. The conversion of IKIP Yogyakarta into a university was based on some considerations such as the observations that the organizational structure of educational institution was too limited to support scientific development and that the number of graduates of IKIP Yogyakarta succeeding who enter non-teaching job markets also increased.
The early stage of the conversion of IKIP Yogyakarta into a university began with the opening of 12 non-educational study programs at the S-1 and D-III levels in the Faculty of Languages and Arts Education, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Education, and the Faculty of Engineering and Vocational Education.
