Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Vocational Education And Training (ICOVET 2017)

Dear participants, dear visitors, and dear Atantis Press, a warm welcome from our side, the ICOVET 2017 committee. We do not believe that this year we had a big event in the Engineering Faculty UniversitasNegeri Malang, in one Dies Natalis Faculty of Engineering activity.

The last weeks and months were becoming again quite busy and the rapidly approaching conference pushed us to give our best to provide you (and us) with an awesome conference. It was again wonderful how so many committed people in the team sacrificed their time to make this event possible. With the right amount of seriousness, fun, and chaos we had a nice time preparing the event.

But without the contributions of the participants, ICOVET 2017 would be a bit sad. We are amazed by the number of highly professional applications, both in the sessions and in the presentation level. The choice was often not easy. At the same time, we are delighted to be able to complete ICOVET 2017's core mission and provide a platform for so many young scientists to present, exchange and discuss ideas from various fields of research.

Last but not least, I strongly hope that all of the distinguished guest gathered here today will offer your generous support and encouragement for the successful conference.
