Despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic, the people-to-people network successfully connected through this virtual event. The conference accentuated not only the enhancement of the academic network between the ASEAN and Japan but also maximized network outreach for stronger impact by involving the related stakeholders. More than 100 participants attended the conference, comprising researchers, academicians, policymakers, practitioners, bankers, students, and industry representatives. Researchers from the ASEAN countries and Australia presented 24 research outputs throughout the various sessions. Five papers are sponsored by AUN/SEED-Net. They shared recent research trends, the latest technology, and their experience on a wide variety of innovations in response to sustainable living in the digital intensive era. Under the theme “Intelligent and Resilient Digital Innovations for Sustainable Living,”, this conference covered board topics relating to the computer engineering field. The presentations at this conference focused on four main areas: (i) Intelligent Information Systems, (ii) Network and Information Security, (iii) Advancement of Digital Innovation, and (iv) Theoretical foundations of Digital Innovation.
