UK Alumni Discussion on Smart Cities


Today, the UK Embassy — with British Council & IABA — carried out a thematic discussion on Smart Cities Beyond ICT-Based Cities, in Panghegar Hotel, Bandung. I happened to be in Bandung after the IEEE Lecture at Telkom University, so I attended this event. The speakers were Prof Suhono (ICT), Prof Haryo (Planology), & Ms Heni (City Management), with Ms Mira as the moderator.


Before leaving, we have small informal chats about the progress of some Smart City initiatives in Indonesia.

IEEE Lecture in Telkom University


IEEE Telkom University Student Branch — the most active IEEE Student Branch in Indonesia — invited me to give an IEEE Lecture to their officers & new students (from Electronics engineering, IT, business, etc); in Telkom University, Thursday night. The title of my presentation was Engineers Opportunity in Disruptive Ecosystem; with some information about Telkom’s Indigo program for digital startups.




As a part of ICSGTEIS 2016 (International Conference on Smart-Green Technology in Electrical and Information Systems) organised by Udayana University – and surely sponsored by the IEEE – the IEEE SB Udayana University carried out a workshop on Internet of Things for Smart City, on Saturday 08 October 2016. I was representing the IEEE Indonesia Section to provide a keynote speech on this workshop, with a lecture titled Internet-of-Everything Architecture for Smart City.

BTW, I wore a batik shirt with a motive called “Batik Kuncoro” :). Google it.


Binus Lecture on Digital Platform Architecture


Still in IEEE Day Celebration. We made a special IEEE Lecture on Collaborative Platform Architecture for Digital Experience, in Bina Nusantara University. Dr Ford Lumban Gaol (IEEE Indonesia Section Vice Chair) opened the event, and I provided the presentation. Thanks, all Binus students (s2 / S3) & academicians.

Seminar on Research & Publication


On 04 October 2016 (coincidentally, it is the IEEE Day 2016), The Ministry of ICT (Kemkominfo) and LIPI (Indonesia Science Institute) carried out a seminar discussing national collaboration in research and scientific publication. This is part of international conferences organised by LIPI, grouped as an event titled Science & Technology Festival. I provided a presentation on the seminar, as a representation of the IEEE.

Since it was the IEEE Day, we took a picture together after my presentation.
