Seminar and Workshop in Indonesia

[another one about Ambalat]

Department of Geodetic Engineering (DGE), Gadjah Mada University actively responds the case of Ambalat, the overlapping claim between Indonesia and Malaysia. As an academic institution, DGE in collaboration with Bakosurtanal will conduct a seminar and workshops related to international boundaries. The series of activities will last for one week at the beginning of May 2005.

Invited in the seminar (3 May 2005) and workshops (6-7 May 2005) are the top-notch people in the area of boundary issues. Amongst them are Ministry of Home affairs, experts from Indonesia’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Bakosurtanal, Department of Defense, Indonesian Universities, etc.

Clive, my supervisor, will also be invited as an international expert in maritime boundaries to present a paper in the seminar. He will also be giving a workshop in legal and technical aspect of maritime boundaries on 6 May 2005. Besides, he will be treated as a visiting fellow to discuss the possibility of conducting joint-researches between CMP, where Clive is currently working, and DGE and also to discuss the new curriculum that contains the course of boundary issue.

I, myself, will come along with Clive and am expected to be the moderator for one of the sessions in the seminar when Clive and Sobar Sutisna, the Chief of Center for Boundary Mapping of Bakosurtanal, present. It will be such a challenging chance for me. On 7 May 2005, I will also be one of the presenters in the workshop giving the material related to the use of CARIS LOTS™ in maritime boundary delimitations.
