A visit to Surabaya [14-15 January 2016]

I would like to thank my colleagues at the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) and Politeknik Elektronika Negeri Surabaya (PENS) for a good reception during our visit there, especially to Prof. Mohammad Nuh (former Indonesian Minister of National Education), Dr. Son Kuswadi, Prof. Ketut Buda Artana, Prof. Didik Prasetyoko, Mr. Djoko Hartanto, Mr. Didik Setyo Purnomo and Dr. Agung Purniawan. Hopefully, our plan to establish the Indonesia-Malaysia Research Consortium (I’M Research Consortium) can proceed smoothly. Prof. Mohammad Nuh agreed to attend the I’M Research Consortium Forum which will be held at UTM, Johor Bahru, on May 18, 2016. On January 14, 2016, I also gave a lecture at the Department of Chemistry, ITS.
