1st International Conference on Educational Studies (ICES 2015)


The development of education at national and international level has sparked the idea to educators and academia to find solutions to educational issues and problems in the 21st century. Based on educational development index (EDI), countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia are in the category of mid-level EDI countries, while other countries such as Singapore and Brunei Darussalam are at higher stage. In other words, the quality of education remains a problem in the countries at the middle level. Therefore, this conference is an effort to expand educational access and sustainability in terms of geography and economic development, improve the quality and relevance of education, and strengthen governance and accountability of education services to accelerate the achievement of universal primary education by 2015.

“1st International Conference on Educational Studies (ICES, 2015)” is an attempt to examine the impact of culture, by applying the findings of research results within and outside the country, study the teaching and learning process to ensure quality education. It is also in line with the efforts to strengthen the quality of education in order to face globalization towards the development of human capital and territorial integrity of the nation.

The 7th Malaysian Software Engineering Conference (MySEC 2013)

Nov. 20, 2013. The 7th Malaysian Software Engineering Conference (MySEC 2013) has successfully been organized by members of Software Engineering Research Group (SERG) of K-Economy Research Alliance (RAKE) and Faculty of Computing, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The head of SERG, Assoc. Prof. Dr Shahida Sulaiman has been the Chair of MySEC 2013.

The speakers from industries and academia included Mr John Sullivan who is the Business Division Product Delivery Manager of MYOB Australia, Mr Matthew Khaw, the Partner Business Strategist of Microsoft Malaysia and Assoc. Prof. Dr Rusli Abdullah, an associate professor of Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Universiti Putra Malaysia.

MySEC 2013 was officiated by Prof. Dr. Ali Selamat, Dean of RAKE, UTM. The organizing committee of MySEC 2013 has successfully organized the event that converged researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to advance the state-of-the-art of software engineering research and practice in Malaysia. RAKE has been supporting the event that provided numerous opportunities for academic and industry delegates to collaborate and learn from each other.

Besides MySEC 2013 that was organised on 20th and 21st November 2013, there were two co-located events on 19 November 2013 that were Agile Symposium and the 4th Software Engineering Postgraduates Workshop (SEPoW 2013). As software development is known for its fast delivery, Agile has been one of the frontiers in software process model and approach. Hence, it is timely to have such symposium among MySEC delegates. In addition, the 4th SEPoW that was organized by Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) provided a good platform among our software engineering postgraduates to receive feedback from the appointed software engineering experts in Malaysia.

Malaysian Software Engineering Interest Group (MySEIG) was established in 2005. MySEIG has been supporting both series of MySEC and SEPoW events until today.

MySEIG consists of academicians, researchers, and practitioners around the world and mainly in Malaysia. Such collaboration among universities and industries in Malaysia is encouraging and should be sustained in order to strengthen software engineering research and practice in Malaysia and to keep abreast with the state-of-the-art in the related fields.

Thus, the theme of MySEC 2013 that is “Software in the Cloud: The Way Forward” highlights the need to develop software towards cloud computing technology. As cloud has become in demand through its various services, it influences the way software engineers work. Phases in software development and maintenance mainly in testing have evolved greatly in tandem with cloud computing technology. In short, researchers and practitioners should be aware of the needs in the rapid growth of software technology.

Indeed MySEC 2013 was a great avenue for fruitful interactions and discussion among academics, researchers, and practitioners in sharing their expertise in related issues in software engineering besides discussing the way forward related to cloud computing.

Forty-four papers were selected to be presented and to be further extended to three respective journals that were International Journal of Innovative Computing (IJIC), International Journal of Software Engineering, and Technology (IJSET) and International Journal of Advances in Soft Computing and Its Application (IJASCA). One of the journals that is IJASCA, is SCOPUS indexed. This initiative will inculcate the need of extending software engineering work that is not only presented in a conference but also published in a related journal. On the other hand, MySEIG is working strategically to receive a continuous support from IEEE Malaysia Section mainly in IEEE publication for future MySEC.

The local organizing committee of SERG UTM would like to acknowledge all the parties involved in ensuring the success of the 7th MySEC 2013.

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 Julai 2013: – Satu majlis penyerahan dokumen perjanjian persefahaman (MoU) antara UTM dan United Nations University International Institute For Global Health (UNU-IIGH) telah diadakan di Bilik Mesyuarat Canseleri, Menara Razak, UTM Kuala Lumpur.

Majlis telah dihadiri oleh Prof. Dr. Ali bin Selamat, Dekan K-Economy Research Alliance UTM mewakili Y. Berbahagia Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Azraai bin Kassim, Pemangku Naib Canselor UTM; Y. Berbahagia Prof. Dato’ Syed Mohamed Aljunid, Felo Penyelidik Kanan / Pemangku Pengarah UNU-IIGH); Prof. Dr. Eko Supriyanto, Pengarah, Pusat Kecemerlangan Kejuruteraan Kardiovaskular UTM-IJN, penyelidik – penyelidik UTM dan UNU-IIGH.

Matlamat utama perjanjian persefahaman ini adalah untuk mewujudkan kerjasama dalam bidang berkaitan kelestarian kesihatan global, penyelidikan dan pembangunan sistem Case Mix (sistem pengukuran prestasi hospital untuk meningkatkan kecekapan perkhidmatan di hospital dan juga bertindak sebagai sistem maklumat yang membenarkan pembuat polisi memahami dasar dan kerumitan perkhidmatan penjagaan kesihatan) dan Clinical Pathway (garis panduan pengurusan pelbagai disiplin perubatan) serta pembangunan perisian keselamatan informatik penjagaan kesihatan.

Melalui MoU ini juga, kedua – dua pihak akan bekerjasama untuk membangunkan dan melaksanakan program pasca siswazah dalam bidang kesihatan awam dan pengurusan penjagaan kesihatan di Malaysia, khususnya dan di peringkat antarabangsa amnya.

MoU ini juga menunjukkan kesungguhan semua pihak di dalam menyokong usaha kerajaan dalam membina Malaysia sebagai sebuah negara maju pada tahun 2020,  melalui perancangan pengurusan yang strategik dan sistematik dalam menangani isu-isu yang berkaitan dengan teknologi penjagaan kesihatan yang lestari.

Pihak UTM  berharap dengan termeterai MoU ini, ia akan menjadi titik mula ke arah pelbagai usahasama lain pada masa hadapan di dalam perkongsian kepakaran khususnya untuk melonjak lagi aktiviti penyelidikan di negara ini. Ia juga akan meningkatkan lagi tahap ilmu dan kemahiran pelbagai pihak yang terlibat dan amat yakin bahawa usaha ini akan menempatkan universiti ini ke tahap yang lebih tinggi di persada dunia.
