With “Integrating Innovations in Science and Engineering among Young Researchers” as the grand theme, the conference was a prestigious national event. There were more than 1000 abstracts presented by experts, researchers, and students from leading universities in Indonesia, from Universitas Indonesia to Institut Teknologi Bandung. In addition to these universities, representatives of Indonesia’s prominent research institutions in Indonesia were also present, i.e. the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), National Nuclear Energy Agency of Indonesia (BATAN), and Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN).
“This was an excellent opportunity for me to learn from a scientific circle full of knowledge and experience, as I’ve always dreamed of becoming a world-class scientist in the future,” said Yheni Mulyaningsih, a Mechanical Engineering student who was named one of the best presenters at the conference.
Sampoerna University also brought home another four awards in the best presenter category. Gemintang Bening (Industrial Engineering), Sepwin Nosten Sitompul, M.Sc.
