The BaSIC 2015 conference has been successfully organized with more than 200 participants from five countries, various scientific disciplines, and diverse institutions. It received critical acclaims from the audiences. The plenary lecture provided fundamental and up-to-date knowledge on an extensive area of science with the audience's seats are largely occupied for two days. The contributed talk in parallel session facilitated the dissemination of research activities done by scientists from various disciplines that may open a collaborative idea. It was also satisfying to have the conference flow successfully adhered with the time schedule.
The poster session was a new mark with active discussion for more than an hour between a large number of audiences and presenters. In Indonesia, poster presentation has been treated with little care and misleading interpretation; and thus creating an incorrect perception about its importance. Here the conference has shown that the poster session is definitely worth for every effort and attention. It is filled with enthusiasm and energetic discussion among young and senior scientists. This would not be possible without the patience of poster presenters who stand next to their poster for an hour, and also for the audience who eagerly ignited the discussion with poster presenters. We would like to congratulate the following presenters for their achievement in poster session and winning the dean poster award:
We are grateful to the editor and referees, who have displayed a fair-and-square judgement, for their effort in deciding the awardee. Also congratulation to Nisa Ayunda (ITS) who was nominated as favorite poster awardee by the conference participants.
