The 9th Asia Pacific Conference of Young Scientists will be held in conjunction with Faculty of Information Technology and Sciences, Parahyangan Catholic University and Center for Young Scientists Indonesia. The aim of the conference is to promote and foster the atmosphere of scientific research amongst secondary school students in the Asia-Pacific region by providing opportunities to share their research findings. Over the last few months, the worldwide concern has mounted inexorably about the COVID-19, resulting in the imposition of rigorous and restrictive border checks with a possibility of compulsory quarantine. To that concern, the conference has been set in the digital platform to take extra precautions as students are involved in APCYS 2020.

Participants of the conference are secondary schools students who have not entered any kind of higher education nor will their age exceed 19 years, and team leaders.

The students shall submit projects in one of these categories: Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Environmental Science, and Life Sciences. Each country. The projects are expected to be submitted in the forms of extended abstract, scientific poster, and oral presentation video. The participation of countries is based on the invitation to the representative of the countries.

The scientific projects will be evaluated by the panel of judges (international) and awarded with certificates. Scientific posters will not be included in the evaluation, but the best poster will be awarded separately.

Following the cancellation of APCYS 2020 in Macau regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the APCYS steering committee board has decided to continue with the online conference. The decision was made to keep the continuing of the conference as nobody knows what is going to happen in the future. I would like to extend my gratitude to Prof. Simon Ming Yuen Lee, PhD. (University of Macau), for leading the preparation of the conference in Macau for APCYS 2020, and yet had to be postponed to 2021.
Big thanks to Dr. rer. nat. Cecilia Esti Nugraheni, the Dean of Faculty of Informatics and Science, Parahyangan Catholic University, Indonesia, for hosting the online APCYS 2020. Another appreciation is addressed to the Center for Young Scientists Indonesia for being the co-host of the conference.
I wish all participants a fruitful conference and new experience of online APCYS.
