- To enable the organising staff to understand the overall ideas of international conference so that they are able to professionally administer both academic and managerial operations together with a system that is transparent and auditable.
- To improve potential, skills, and the ability of organising committee in order to organise meetings of various levels, including sub-meetings, mid-level and conferences of international stages.
- To enable organising staff to be aware of current situations and trends in the world that are constantly changing so that the actualities can be applied by the organising committee to support the work of the organisation.
