The ITCE2018 will involve a number of multidiciplinary activities
including aspects of culture and tourism together with excussions to
places of local interest that help participants experience Borneo in
new and exciting ways.
BSN GRADUATE STUDENT WORKSHOP
As part of its commitment, serving as the BSN secretariat and
having initiated the grouping, IAS has planned the first activity. The
Graduate Students Workshop is a capacity-building workshop which aims
to nurture talent among the young prospective Borneo academics. IAS
believes that the future of BSN and Borneo in particular lies in the
talented young academics and hence they should be properly guided.
To have maximum impact, the workshop is proposed to be a full
four days interactive course. Each institution is expected to send two
graduate students who will be fully funded by the organizer (UBD).
Besides UBD mentors, the organizer will carefully select the best
lecturers in the relevant area from the participating institutions to
also serve as mentors. However, it is proposed to invite one prominent
international research leader to give prestige as well as the best
input to the workshop.
