1. Tourism and the Idea of “Archipelago Tourism”
Recently, tourism has become the world’s largest industries and contributes on the development of many aspects in social life. Being integrated with development, tourism should be developed in order to obtain excellent contributions to regional and society life. However for many decades, the development had been obtained in continental hemisphere so the idea in developing archipelago tourism industry is not much considered. Besides, archipelago areas are considered unfamiliar in society since not all countries are in archipelago areas. Archipelago tourism is considered well as the arena to develop tourism industry in archipelagic islands. Thus, an idea of archipelago tourism can be great study to be discussed in the future world. In archipelago tourism, there will be many aspects integrated, and it is not only marine study exposed. Forestry, husbandry, plantation, culture, social, environment, biology, tourism, geology, and the other studies are welcome. The new born of archipelago tourism discussion is intended to strengthen both practice and academic studies to develop new paradigm and direction of study which can be potentially developed in the future.

2. The Specific Issue of Marine Tourism in Archipelago Tourism
Marine tourism issue becomes the specific theme of the discussion within. Marine potencies in archipelago tourism are considered as potential domain in tourism industries. To develop these potencies is not easy since it is challenged from many aspects. To answer the challenges in archipelago tourism, practitioner and academician need to be able to deal with the very issue, The development of marine tourism in archipelago hemisphere will succeed by integrating all aspects.

3. Why need to set up series on INTACT?
Tourism flows are subject to some problems by a range of issues as it is in archipelago tourism. The 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 industry systems. These would be seriously challenged to secure and maintain tourism development and it clearly does matter in terms of island visitation and awareness levels of archipelago areas. It becomes difficult with which to deal. Individual island sensitivities, archipelago politics and policies, economic actualities, transportation or accessibility, development of tourist facilities and policies, government management, concepts of regional regulation, social and cultural sensitiveness, geographical policies, and practices of intermediaries, including travel agents, tour operators, airlines and cruise lines are all involved. Thus it raises important issues to study. The data and empirical analyses about archipelago tourism remain limited, it need to be empirically understood. Currently, tourism academics have not become frequently active in researching and publishing in the area of archipelago tourism. 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 is expected to explore issues concerned with achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability of tourism alongside the governance mechanisms needed to support sustainable tourism of archipelago tourism. Specifically, INTACT 2016 will focus on marine tourism in archipelago hemisphere. This conference aims to add to this debate by stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas between tourism experts, tourism industry practioners, researchers, lecturers, and students from all tourism-related fields. It could also discuss how new resources ought to be employed to avoid the errors committed in the past and propose remedial actions when required. The meeting will also focus on empirical work and case studies from around the world, which can offer new insights and best practice guidance.

4. Why CTS-UGM should be the first to manage?
