The abstract should be concise, maximum 200 words, single spaced, written in Indonesian and English. Abstract contains a summary of the research purposes, iresults and the main conclusions. Avoid the use of writing references in the abstract and unusual abbreviations. Please complete the asbtract with keywords, with 3-6 words, used for indexing and tracking information. The keywords should have the right words, so people can find related articles by entering a keyword in the search.



Introduction should be written in brief and concise, containing the description of the theory behind the research, the study of contemporary expression, the expression problem to be solved, objectives and hypotheses of the study. This section is used to write the research background. Please attach the refences in the section.


Material and Method

In this section, the author should reveal about the type of sample used, tools and materials that are specifically used in the study. Besides, it should also include the behavior or procedure performed research work. Adaptation of the procedure has been used, is done by calling the adapted reference, and does not need rewriting. If there is modification procedures, the types of modifications that need to be written down in detail.


Results and Discussion

In this section, authors should disclose the results of research and explanation or intrepretasinya be concise, clear and concise meaning. Results can be presented in the form of images, tables or curves, so as to clarify the results. Description and discussion of the results can be presented in a separate section or combined as needed. Discussion conducted should explain the freshness of the research conducted, not an explanation of the procedures or repetition of existing research.



This section states the findings of the study based on the results of research and discussion. Conclusions should be presented briefly and clearly



it should be conveyed to the person, institution or other entity that actually support the research and not addressed to the members of researchers who are directly involved in the research.



Research supporting data can be included separately from the main article as an attachment, such as video files, computer simulation files and datasets.
