The central theme of the conference is ‘Archipelago Tourism’ which would also be the tag line for the conference series. The specific theme for 2016 INTACT is ‘Marine Tourism’. This conference is aimed to discuss issues, paradigms, theories, concepts, polices and practical experiences on Marine Tourism in Archipelagic hemisphere.
In archipelago tourism, problem and difficulties may occur in social or natural issues, in developing destinations, managing destinations, or may be remote from either. The consequences may be either mild or relatively short term or have long term impacts on existing or future tourism industry systems. These would be seriously challenged to secure and maintain tourism development properly and it clearly does matter in terms of island visitation and awareness levels of archipelago areas. Thus it raises important issues to study. The data and empirical analyses about archipelago tourism remain limited; it needs to be empirically understood. It is, therefore, one need to have a forum to share the knowledge and expertise to welcome the new discussion. The forum that is proposed to deal with the issues is International Academic Conference on Tourism (INTACT 2016). This conference may trigger the tourism academicians and practitioners to become active in researching and publishing in the area of archipelago tourism.
Organized by Center for Tourism Studies Universitas Gadjah Mada, this conference will explore issues concerned with achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability of tourism alongside the governance mechanisms needed to support sustainable tourism especially in archipelagic areas.

This province is one of the most densely populated areas of Indonesia. The city came into being in 1755, after the Mataram division into the Sultanates of Yogyakarta and Surakarta (Solo). Gamelan, classical and contemporary Javanese dances, wayang kulit (leather puppet), theater and other expressions of traditional art will keep the visitor spellbound. Local craftsmen excel in arts such batiks, silver and leather works. Next to the traditional, contemporary art has found fertile soil in Yogya’s culture oriented society. Yogyakarta is often called the main gateway to the Central Java as where it is geographically located. It stretches from Mount Merapi to the Indian Ocean. There is daily air service to Yogya from Jakarta, Surabaya and Bali as well as regular train service and easy accessibility by road. Yogyakarta is commonly considered as the modern cultural of Central Java. Although some may prefer Solo as a good runner up, Yogyakarta remains the clear front-runner for traditional dance, Wayang (traditional puppetry) and music.
