Opening new era as a world class university, Mataram University with the Helmholtz Zentrum-GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) Potsdam-Germany and the University of Indonesia, rolling out a successful 1st International Conference on Applied Electromagnetic Technology (AEMT). This Conference was carried out in conjunction with inauguration of the Lombok Geomagnetic Observatory, which is research cooperation between the Mataram University with the GFZ Potsdam and the local Government of Central Lombok District. The inauguration ceremony was conducted on 11 April, with “BismiLlah” recitation, a ribbon-cutting and balloon flight into the sky by the Vice Rector of Mataram University. The event, organized in a simple manner but solemn, was attended by the officials of the local government, religious figures and local community. Also present, some invited guests from the national researchers (LIPI, LAPAN, BMKG) and international ones (Germany and USA), and alumni of German scholarship holders (DAAD) from various regions of Indonesia.
The summit of AEMT conference was held on 14 April 2014 in the Grand Legi Mataram Hotel. Misbahuddin ST.MT, as Chairman of the Committee, said in his speech that the seminar presented 47 papers in the field of geo- electromagnetic technology, new-and renewable energies, data management and information systems, as well as telecommunications. In addition to national speakers, speakers from seven other countries also participated, namely the United States, Japan, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Korea and India.
Three keynote speakers presented in the 1st Panel Session are Dr. Monika Korte from the GFZ Potsdam-Germany, Prof. Wolfgang Martin Boerner from the University of Illinois at Chicago USA and Dr. Harry Arjadi from EMC Laboratory SMTP LIPI. The seminar feels different since in the 2nd Panel, Prof. Katsumi Hattori from Chiba University Japan and Prof. Mioara Mandea from University Paris Diderot France, presented virtually via Skype. The presence of Prof. Mandea, as the General Secretary of the IAGA (International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy) and the General Secretary of the EGU (European Geophysical Union), is a very exceptional support to the Lombok Geomagnetic Observatory and AEMT. Toning up the seminar, some posters from the JICA and the INSINas 2014 research team were displayed.
