ISTS 2015 was followed by several countries in the world, including Japan, Hongkong, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. ISTS 2015 was organized by Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in cooperation with the National Institute of Technology, Japan; Nagaoka University of Technology, Japan; and Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan. The international nature of symposiums in ISTS provides an opportunity to communicate with students from around the world and make them aware of the differences between educational practices followed in different countries.
