OPEN SOCIETY CONFERENCE

Social and political changes to the fourth industrial revolution is a difficult condition to be avoided by a community or society in this world. Besides being possible to characterize by the digitalization, Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, these disruptive changes will be obviously seen in robotics, 3D-Printers, nanotechnology and biotechnology, etc. This is not only about technological changes but also how deep and fast the changes will be developed. They will be disruptive because of the integration of knowledge and scientific disciplines. Environmental Informatics is a result of a new ecosystem created by the impact of the Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, the Government should provide access to technology in order to have more citizens enjoying the benefits of the new technological standard and the global society.

Related to the term, the information society is a society that sees that the production, consumption and distribution of information is an inherent part of all socio-economic activities. Even information can also be stated as part of "capital" in the form of information commodification process. In shorts, almost all socio-economic activities are based on information assisted by information technology. Therefore, information and communication technology is a constitutive element in an information society as expressed by the phrase "information is the lifeblood that sustains political, social and business decision".

IORA International Conference on Operations Research

It is well-known that the use of data in decisions making is not a new idea. But the field of business analytics was born in the mid-1950s, with the advent of analytical tools that could digest a bulky quantity of information and perceive patterns in it far more quickly than the unassisted human mind ever cloud. Taking full advantage of big data’s potential means companies must comprehend analytics into their strategic vision and utilize it to provide better and faster decisions, i.e., promote decisions based on analytics rather than instinct, while in other side, volume of data continues to double every three years as information surges in from digital platforms. Thus, analytical capability helps decision makers look beyond their own perspective in discerning real pattern and expecting opportunity.
Operation research as well as management science (OR/MS) has had an impressive contribution on improving the efficiency of numerous organizations around the world by offering a best solution. In the process, OR/MS has made a significant support to increasing the productivity of the economies of various countries. In this era of data-driven analytics OR/MS is an ultimate tool for technical professionals who want to acquire the knowledge and skills required to incorporate analytics to solve real business problems.
IORA International Conference on Operations Research 2017 (IORA-ICOR 2017) is held in conjunction with Universitas Terbuka National Seminar on Mathematics, Sciences, and Technology 2017. The conference initiates to bring together OR/MS researchers, academicians and practitioners, whose collective work has sustained continuing OR/MS contribution to decision-making in many fields of application. It can be considered as good platforms for the OR/MS community, particularly in Indonesia, to meet each other and to exchange ideas.
Objectives
The primary objectives of the conference are:
to facilitate interaction between OR/MS researchers and academicians in discussing current challenges that need to be addressed as well as highlighting new developments of methods, algorithms, and tools in the field.
to provide OR/MS researchers, academicians and practitioners an appropriate platform for sharing experiences, communication and networking with other experts within the nation and from around the world in maximizing the contribution of OR/MS for sustainable growth, promoting of a knowledge-based economy, and utilizingthelimited resources.

The 31st Asian Association of Open Universities (AAOU) Conference

The AAOU Conference has established itself as one of the leading educational events worldwide which much be awaited by many world class educational experts in the field of open and distance learning (ODL), especially those from Asia region. ODL has been proven for several decades as an effective means in human capacity building across nations. A wide country with its great diversity in culture and accessibility to education such as Indonesia has benefited by the use of the ODL system.

The Conference will hopefully provide the catalyst for knowledge sharing among participants, particularly in areas pertaining to the sub-themes. With 62 institutional members from 23 countries, the AAOU is certainly a force to be reckoned with. The recommendations and outcomes of this conference can have far-reaching benefits to the ODL community.

The 31st Asian Association of Open Universities (AAOU) Conference will be held from 27 – 29 September 2017 at the Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is hosted by Universitas Terbuka (Indonesia Open University).
