Three Study Programs, namely Electrical Engineering Education Study Program, Electrical Engineering and Industrial Automation and Robotics Engineering Education, Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia are holding ISMEE (International Symposium on Materials and Electrical Engineering) with offline mode at Holiday Inn Resort Baruna, Bali, Indonesia. The 4th ISMEE with the theme "Empowering sustainable innovation through emerging technologies in materials and electrical engineering" was implemented on August 16, 2023 in collaboration with PT Rumah Publiskasi Indonesia, and supported by several co-hosts including Universitas Kuningan, Sekolah Tinggi Intelijen Negara, dan Universitas Cipasung Tasikmalaya. All articles presented at ISMEE 2023 will be published in AIP Proceedings and indexed by Scopus.
This conference was held by inviting Prof. Dr. Ariando from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hassanuzzaman from the University of Malaya, and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Eng. Muhammad Aziz from the University of Tokyo as Keynote Speakers. This conference was also attended by Paper Presenters, Moderators, and students from the Indonesian Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia and other campuses. Paper Presenters come from various countries, which will present their research in a hybrid method. The event was opened by listening to the National Anthem of Indonesia Raya, followed by a welcome speech and the official opening of the event from the Conference chair, Prof. Dr. Ade Gafar Abdullah. The next event was remarks as well as the opening of the 4th International Symposium on Material and Electrical Engineering (ISMEE) 2023 by the leadership representative, Dr. Iwan Kustiawan as Head of the Electrical Engineering Study Program FPTK UPI.
The event continued with the delivery of material for the first session on "Decarbonization and Sustainability Challenges in the Energy Sector and Its Future" by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hassanuzzaman from the University of Malaya and hosted by moderator Dr. Roer Eka Pawinanto, Lecturer in the Industrial Automation Engineering Education Study Program and Robotics FPTK UPI. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hassanuzzaman is one of the researchers in the energy sector who received the World's Top 2% Scientists award from Elsevier & Stanford University in 2020, 2021. He said that the current challenge in the energy sector is optimizing the decarbonization process and its effectiveness.
The event continued with Keynote Speeches from the second Keynote Speaker, namely Assoc. Prof. Dr. Eng. Muhammad Aziz from the University of Tokyo, moderated by Dr. Roer Eka Pawinanto, with the topic "Digital Twin Technology in Carbon-Free Energy Systems Toward the Realization of Zero Carbon Society". He said that there is a need for a simultaneous transition strategy to achieve an energy transition. Centralization is not only for the city itself, but also correlates with the energy system. The smart energy system is a combination of Smart Electricity (electricity), thermal (heat) and gas. With this system, we can reduce energy prices, expand energy storage, and much more. With this system, the source of carbon materials is replaced by other materials that are more environmentally friendly. It explains how fuel sources are converted into H2-based fuels, applications of hydrogen and ammonia, such as those used in trains and buses. Priority integration for H2/NH3 with strongest active power is battery. Described possible roadmaps for hydrogen and possible initial scenarios to be implemented in Indonesia. Technologies that can be adopted for the future are Multifunctioning EVs and VGI-Vechile Grid Integration, and V2G (Vechile-to-Grid). in conclusion, what we need now is decarbonization, energy efficiency, renewable energy, securities, smart systems, resilience, social, and general rules.
Keynote speech dari Assoc. Prof. Dr. Eng. Muhammad Aziz
The last keynote session at this year's ISMEE was the keynote speech by Prof. Dr. Ariando from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with the topic "Quantum Materials by Design for a Sustainable Future". Some of the recognitions he has received include the Young Investigator Award, Dean's Chair Professor, Outstanding Researcher Award, and Faculty Award for Mentorship Excellence, Faculty of Science, NUS, a NEXT Visiting Investigator at LNCMI, CNRS France, and the 2023 Japanese Society for Applied Physics (JSAP) best review paper award, Japan. He explained about his recent research, namely Spintronics, namely Spin-based Electronics for future technology. In his explanation, he first explained the main problem to be solved, namely how to measure the spin of doped charges (doped holes and doped electrons)? Furthermore, it is explained about new hypotheses and ideas, for the topic of the problem being worked on. He questioned where did the doped charge go? And give possible answers and what happened. "We Need to Prove Which One Is The Correct One" is the essence of doing this hypothesis. In conducting research, several challenges were found in conducting experiments. Therefore, he must understand the electronic structure of the material being studied. Apart from that, he also conveyed material related to energy in terms of quantum material.
After listening to presentations from all the Keynote Speakers in a panel discussion format, the Paper Presenters and participants were directed to enter parallel sessions and zoom meetings that had been determined and provided by the committee, to conduct parallel presentation sessions. There are 2 parallel session rooms offline and 3 zoom rooms with different research themes, Room 1 with the theme: "Computing and Processing", Room 2 with the theme: "Telecommunication and Networking", Room 3 with the theme: "Power Energy and Industry Application ", Room 4 with the theme: "Components, Circuits and Devices", Room 5 with the theme: "General Engineering and Engineered materials, Dielectric and Plasmas". In making presentations, presenters are accompanied by Moderators who are on standby in each room, where each presenter gets 10 minutes for the presentation session and 5 minutes for the Question and Answer session.
The parallel session went well and the participants were enthusiastic about the presentations and exchanged ideas about their research. The closing speech was given by Dr. Didin Wahyudin. With this closing speech, the 2023 International Symposium on Materials and Electrical Engineering (ISMEE) with the theme "Empowering sustainable innovation through emerging technologies in materials and electrical engineering" was officially closed. See you again at the upcoming ISMEE 2025 international conference. (Contributor: Roer Eka)
