About HIC in Malaysia 2020

Hyper-Interdisciplinary Conference (HIC) started off as an internal communication platform in 2012 between Leave a Nest members in Japan to exchange and share their research findings in order to create a new research field. Since then, it has evolved to become a unique conference where corporations, governments, startups, and researchers, and from different fields gather together to create and integrate a novel body of knowledge.  Hyper-interdisciplinary Conference in Malaysia (HICMY) 2021 will be the third year of organizing HIC in Malaysia.
