INFERT 2016

Jurusan Teknik Elektro Politeknik Negeri Pontianak untuk pertama kalinya mengadakan International Conference on Applied Electrical, Electronics, and Informatics Engineering (INFERT) yang mengusung tema: The Breakthrough in Technology for a Better Tomorrow. INFERT 2016 diselenggarakan  di Hotel Mercure, 26-27 Juli kemarin. 

Salah 1 keynote speaker, Prof. Taufik

INFERT 2016 menghadirkan 4 keynote speakers: 

1. Prof. Taufik, WNI yang sejak 1989 living in USA dan menjadi full tenured professor at Cal Poly. I instantly like his personality. He is so brilliant and very humble. His name is ‘only’ Taufik, sehingga di USA dikasih NFN (no first name) di depan nama deh sama orang sana.

2. Dr. Harold S. Ruiz, dosen di Leicester University, UK. He came along with his wife, who is also a doctor in the same field and his wife is currently teaching in a university in Germany.

3. Anton S. Pabuwono, PhD, WNI yang in the last 3 years menjadi pengajar di Arab Saudi, tepatnya di King Abdul Aziz University. 

4. Dr. Alfeus Sunarso, dosen di Polnep yang tinggal di Jepang sekitar 10 tahun untuk studi dan meraih Master, Doctoral dan Post-doc degree.

Lah saya ngapain di acara orang-orang berlatar berlatar belakang teknik elektro, teknik mesin, dan teknik informatika ini? Alhamdulillah walopun sama sekali buta kayu tentang bidang ilmu tersebut, saya dipercaya untuk jadi MC kegiatan ini. Senang sekali rasanya, karena artinya saya dapat kesempatan untuk menyerap ilmu yang benar-benar baru bagi saya. Selain tentunya I got my chance to enhance my MCing skill sekaligus getting paid for doing what I love *hachiiim 😜

With Bu Nurul Fadillah, INFERT 2016 committee

Cooperating with Polnep lecturers and students is always a great pleasure. Saya suka dengan keramahtamahan mereka. And I salute their team work. Kece. Dari sudut pandang ‘orang luar’ seperti saya yang ga ikut nimbrung dari awal, I can sense their strong sense-of-belonging to the institution. To be noted, this event isn’t my first event with polnep. Sebelumnya pernah juga terlibat (menjadi juri) di kompetisi debat tahunan yang diadakan salah 1 UKM Polnep dan ikut jadi peserta workshop tentang writing. Those were fun too!

Semoga ke depannya, acara seperti ini makin banyak terselenggara di Pontianak. It did feed my brain, widen my insights, and expand my networking for sure. Bertemu orang-orang baru di dunia nyata selalu bikin happy. And I agree that this kind of conference is one of good places for doing it 😉
