IEEE R10 Professional Activity Mini-Conference was carried out today in Margo Depok. The speakers are Prof Akinori Nishihara (Director of IEEE R10), Prof Takako Hashimoto (Secretary of IEEE 10 Excom), Nirmal Nair (Professional Activity Coord of IEEE 10), Prof Kalamullah Ramli (Univ of Indonesia), and yours truly. Also attended this event: Emi Yano (IEEE R10 WIE Coordinator), Prakash Lohana (IEEE R10 Humanitarian Technology Coordinator), etc.
The title of my presentation: Smart City — a context for digital ecosystem collaborative development.
BPPT invited Engineering Professional Organisations in a short iftar session today. The IEEE Indonesia Section was represented by some volunteers (incl Dr Hugeng, Dr Wahidin, Amanda, and yours truly), since the Excom members were too busy.
Surely here I met some old connections, happily. I met Prof Ashwin, Dr Lubis, Prof Suhono, etc.
Unfortunately, this was only a short session — ended just before Isya & Tarawih.
Opening of the Annual Member Gathering.
Presenting «Collaborative Industry Innovation» at IEEE Indonesia Section Annual Member Gathering 2019.
After Section Chairmanship Handover from Prof Fitri Yuli Zulkifli to Prof Wisnu Jatmiko.
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the IEEE Indonesia Section, with the current Indonesia Section Chair, Prof Fitri Yuli Zulkifli, and all Executive Committee Members & activists of the IEEE in Indonesia; in Universitas Indonesia.
We work hard with trust, commitment, and togetherness to build up this organisation from almost nothing (even just 10 years ago) to be a professional organisation highly honoured for its contribution in Indonesia.
IEEE Tencon 2017 was held in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia. As a part of this great event, the IEEE R10 Industry Relations Committee has planned to carry out a higher-level Industry Forum to boost the engagement of the engineers from the regional industries & involvement of the IEEE in the industrial world. The speakers for this forum is none other than the IEEE President, Karen Bartleson, accompanied by representatives from regional innovative industries, including Telkom Indonesia.
This is arguably a paradox, though. Just after this forum, I had to resign my position (and any involvement) at R10 Excom, and chose instead to spend more time to solve real issues in Indonesia using technological (and digital) approaches. This will include small industry & entrepreneurship, agriculture, youth involvement, digital incubation, etc.
IEEE Hardtech Summit is an IEEE forum, owned by the IEEE Region 10 Young Professional, with the objective to bring together entrepreneurs, industry leaders, investors, researchers, community leaders and an exuberant lot of budding minds across Asia. This year, this event is carried out in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in Putrajaya, organised by the IEEE Malaysia Section.
Karen Bartleson — the IEEE President 2017 — is also attending this event. It is a good opportunity to explore the collaboration opportunity among ecosystems in South-East Asia area.
This event is attended by about 50 people, including young engineers, students, entrepreneurs, industrial engineers, etc. The topic includes robotics, fisheries, IoT, new energy source, etc related to hardtech :).
(I use present tense here since I am writing this post while attending the summit)
