CISAK 2012 is the 5th annual conference event of Perpika’s continued commitment to advance the education since the first CISAK on 2008.

Unfortunately i can’t join the first day’ CISAK program, thus i can’t provide you any pictures from there. I go to Daejeon at Sunday (July 8th) morning with Dini and another 16 students from any university in Busan & Ulsan. We’re all gathered at the meeting point, Pukyong National University (45 minutes by subway from my campus Pusan National University). We go to Daejeon by free bus named Bis Ceria (Happy Bus :D) provide by Perpika. The travel from Busan to Daejeon took 3.5 hours (include 30 minutes break in rest area).
The conference take place at the Plenary Hall of the University of Science of Technology (UST):
And this is the venue🙂
After Adji (Chair of Organizing Committee CISAK) open the event by his speech, then it is Iwa (Perpika’ Vice President) giving his speech substituting Andy Tirta (Perpika’ President) who’s on Los Angeles, USA, at that day to attend the Congress of Indonesian Diaspora. Actually both of their speech was very great, too bad i wasn’t record it😦
After the opening ceremony, the next session is Technical Presentation which are divided into 4 rooms with different clusters:
- Room 1: Education; Urban and Environmental Planning
- Room 2: Social Science and Humanity; Economic Development Acceleration; Energy
- Room 3: Food and Science Technology; Medicine and Biotechnology
- Room 4: Electronic, Communication, and Informatics; Science and Technology Information
Since my major ain’t include in those, so i just choose to go to Room 4 with Dini (her major is Computer Science).
After the oral presentations from Thomhert Siadari and Eddy Hartono Halim, respectively, it is time for the invited speaker to give a presentation. In room 4, the invited speaker is Hardian Reza D., PhD (Perpika’s 4th President) who’s now working on LG Electronics, Korea. When i’m typing this post, i just realized that both of them (Zulfikar and Hardian) are the former President of Perpika😀
The next program is Poster session, we vote for poster that we like (i prefer say that sentence aforementioned than using “we vote for the best poster” :D). The poster that becomes center of attention is belong to Wahyono which have a title “Pemanfaatan Metode Deteksi Kulit untuk Aplikasi Pendeteksi Gambar Porno” (The Utilization of Skin Detection Method for Pornographic Images Detector Application), and i do vote for this poster as well😀
