A conference on community engagement has been held at Universiti Malaya since 2016 and is hosted by the UM Community Engagement Centre (UMCares). With a new branding, Universiti Malaya Academia - Community Engagement (UMACE) International Conference, which was established in 2019, UMCares took on the challenge of presenting this conference worldwide. In 2021, the centre had its first international webinar conference. The UMACE International Conference, which takes place every two years, aims to bring together researchers, scientists, policymakers, representatives from government nongovernmental organizations, and any other potential stakeholders who are directly or indirectly involved in community engagement projects and initiatives.
