This inauguration was held on July 20 2023 in the Auditorium of the ITS Research Center Building.


The inauguration procession which was held offline was also broadcast live via the official ITS Youtube channel. in this event each new professor will present a scientific oration on the results of the research that has been done and how the research will have an impact on society. The event began with an explanation of the life history of the five professors, then opened with remarks from ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng.


The inauguration procession was started by Prof. Daniel Oranova Siahaan, S.Kom., M.Sc., P.D.Eng, from the Informatics Engineering department


The scientific oration presented was entitled “Techniques, Challenges, and Opportunities in the Analysis of Software Engineering Artifacts.” In his oration, he conveyed the relationship between software engineering and software engineering. “In software engineering we focus on changing the computing model into consumer goods or consumer electronics.” said the lecturer from Palembang. Furthermore, he also explained related problems in the software development process, then he explained the research conducted, one of which was User Story. “We developed a method for extracting user stories from non-related document software, in the form of news on social media.” he said. Furthermore, in accordance with the title of the speech delivered, he also explained the challenges and opportunities that are often experienced by researchers starting from limited research resources, domain dependent, support for Indonesian NLP. He ended the scientific oration by saying, “All the challenges we mentioned earlier also represent opportunities that are still very broad to be explored in the field of software analysis.”


Furthermore, another Electics lecturer who succeeded in becoming a professor was Prof. Mahendrawathi ER, S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D, from the Information Systems department.


Presented a scientific oration entitled “Context-Based Business Process Management in the Digital Transformation Era.” In his speech, he explained the importance of Business Process Management in creating value for customers. “Business process management is a combination of modeling, automation, implementation, control, which supports company goals involving employees, customers, partners inside and outside the company”. Said the lecturer from Bali.


Next, he explained about the research that had been carried out, and also the challenges that had been obtained from each level of the company. “I research at various levels, from small classes to multinational corporate scales. Many have implemented an ERP (Enterprise System) system, which is one of the most sophisticated systems today.” The challenges presented varied, ranging from human resources, capital, and also the interrelationships between the use of business systems and processes which were often incompatible.

Furthermore, he provides solutions that are suitable from all the research that has been done, namely the Context-Based Business Process Management Framework, and the Business Process Management Framework for Digital Transformation. “The framework that I developed, I hope, can help stakeholders in various organizations in Indonesia to formulate the right strategy for managing business processes based on the organizational context.”


Finally, another Electics lecturer who succeeded in becoming a professor was Prof. Dr. Eng. Nanik Suciati, S.Kom., M.Kom. from the Informatics Engineering department.


presented his scientific oration entitled “Computer Vision: Techniques, Roles, and Challenges in Analyzing Visual Information.” In the oration he delivered, he explained about computer vision and also computer vision assignments which were differentiated based on the level of understanding produced. “Currently computer vision has been widely implemented, for example in the field of surveillance, facial imagery is used for access in and out of rooms, and many more”

Next, he explained about the research that had been done, which represented the use of computer vision and how the research would benefit society.

“With the development of computer vision, it can produce AI that is more accurate in its work,” said the lecturer from Pasuruan.

Research conducted includes:

  1. Development of a fish species recognition model using a modified VGGNet, useful for digital data repositories, supporting sustainable fisheries management.
  2. Development of a script detection model on palm-leaf images using YOLOv4 with an augmented dataset, useful for supporting efforts to preserve, transliterate and expand access to cultural heritage
  3. Development of a video signal recognition model in Indonesian using the Shift-GCN modification, useful for facilitating two-way communication with the deaf thereby increasing the accessibility of the deaf

Furthermore, the event was closed with a report from the Chairman of the ITS Professor Council Prof. Dr. Ir. Imam Robandi, MT. as the organizer of the inauguration hopes that the increase in the number of professors at ITS will also be accompanied by an increase in work productivity.
