New school year ...

Well, it's official. It's a new schoolyear.

Yesterday, August 23rd 2005, there was a "Pertemuan Awal Tahun Akademik 2005/2006" at Aula Barat. Our university president, Prof. Djoko Santoso, gave a presentation on ITB's direction to become a research(-based?) university. Some criteria and targets were shown. I didn't stay around for the presentation because I had class to teach at 9:00 AM.

I am a bit skeptical with this. I have written bits and pieces on managing research in my various blogs. In short, we still have to learn on how to manage research (and research centers). Unfortunately, not many (nobody) listened to me. Oh well.

Anyway, see you all in campus.
