October 2016


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.

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.

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.
