Joni Hermana, followed by presentations from several departments and research & postgraduate programs, and an introduction to the organizing committee by a surprise flash mob inside the rectorate main conference room.

   After a lunch break in the adjoined dining room, the next agenda was a campus tour to Chemistry dept. laboratories, national car research center, central ITS library, and Spectronics team from Chemical Engineering dept.
