THE THIRD US-INDONESIA KAVLI FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE: CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
This call for expression of interest is a preliminary announcement in the preparation for The Third US-Indonesia Kavli Frontiers of Sciences symposium, jointly organized by the US National Academy of Science and the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI), to be held in June 24-27, 2013 in Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia.
The Kavli-Frontiers of Science Series was inaugurated in Irvine, California on March 2-4, 1989, through a symposium on Frontiers of Science, organized by a committee of young scholars with the support of the National Science Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the National Academy of Sciences. These annual symposia bring together some of the very best young scientists to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in their fields in a format that encourages informal collectives as well as one-on-one discussions among participants.
Speakers are urged to focus their talks on current cutting-edges research in their disciplines to colleagues outside their fields. Typically, these symposia are attended by approximately 80 to 100 scholars, by up to a dozen senior colleagues, and by several science writers. Attendees for the Frontiers of Science symposia are selected from the pool of young researchers (PdD under 45 years of age) who have made significant contribution to science.
The US series inspired bilateral symposia, organized jointly by the US National Academy of Science and national academies from other countries, such as the UK, Japan, China, India and also Indonesia (in the last 3 years). Thus, the Frontiers of Science Symposia have become a fundamental instrument in bringing together the best young scientists "the next generation of leaders" in the field of natural sciences and engineering, in the US and around the world.
The First- and Second US-Indonesia Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium were held in Bogor (2011) and Solo (2012) respectively. A total of 70 participants (40 scientist from Indonesia and 30 from USA) were selected by the Organizing Committee for the meeting: eighteen participants gave oral presentations and 52 gave poster presentations, reporting on current research within their disciplines to academically trained and scientifically diverse audiences. They highlighted major research challenges, methodologies, and limitations to progress at the frontiers of their respective fields. All attendees participated actively in general discussion, during which they learned from and form collaborative relationships with other young scientists.
Call for Expression of Interest
The Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI) has formed an Indonesian Organizing Committee of young scientists, chaired by Prof. Dr. Jamaludin Jompa with Dr. Dodi Safari, Dr. Fenny Dwivany, Dr. Ronny Martien, Dr. Roby Muhamad, and Dr. Vanny Narita as membersto prepare the Third US-Indonesia Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium, in cooperation with the US Organizing Committee. This meeting will be held in Bali in 24-27 June 2013 and cover six topics (Human microbe and personalized medicine, Indonesian biogeography and biodiversity, Social decision making & social network, Life at extreme environment, Marine and geothermal energy, and Genetic engineering and synthetic biology). The Indonesian Organizing Committee invites expression of interest from young scientists of Indonesia to participate in the Third US-Indonesia Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium.
1. Have a doctoral degree and actively conduct/participate in research as shown by their peer-reviewed international and national publications.
2. No more than 45 years old at the time of application.
3. Submit a brief CV (no more than 2 pages) highlighting their publication list.
4. Include a brief statement (short paragraph, no more than 500 words) on what you would like to present at the meeting if you are selected.
Application should be written in English and sent to: kavli@... by no later than 20 March 2013.
Why You Should Apply
Selected participants will be sponsored (travel and accommodation) to attend the symposium. You will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your work with 30 of the best US and 40 other Indonesian young scientists, interested in collaborating with you in cutting edge research projects. The symposium program would allow visits to your laboratory and institution by interested US participants. These are organized to create opportunities for and promote the development of future collaborations.
