Keynote Speakers

Prof. Josaphat Tetuko

Prof. Josaphat Tetuko is a researcher in the field of microwave scattering theory and its application for microwave (radar) remote sensing, especially synthetic aperture radar (SAR), underground radar or subsurface radar (VLF and Microwave), analysis and design of printed antennas for mobile satellite communications and synthetic aperture radar (SAR). He is the inventor of circular polarized synthetic apertures for unmanned and small satellite aircraft, as well as a 3-dimensional weather forecasting radar. In addition, he is also one of the patent holders of microstrip antennas (disc-shaped antennas with a diameter of 12 centimeters and a thickness of 1.6 millimeters) that can be used to communicate directly with satellites. He completed his Ph.D in 2002, and in the same year joined Chiba University (Japan) as a staff. He obtained Full Professor (permanent staff) on April 1, 2013 from Chiba University, Japan and still works at the same university. He is also an active reviewer at the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letter (GRSL), International Journal of Remote Sensing and several other internationals. Currently, he serves as the Head Division of the Center for Remote Sensing (CRS) at the Institute of Technology Bandung, and is active as a visiting Professor at various domestic and foreign universities.

He is known for the development of Food Science and Biotechnology and his collaborative work with life scientists, clinicians, and the biomedical industry internationally. Jaswir is a Fellow of Indonesian, Malaysian, and Saudi Arabian Societies, for the achievements he has received. He was chosen for the recipient of Best Innovation Award in World Halal Research Summit (WHRS) Forum in 2010,  in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the research entitled Nano-Structural Properties of Alternative Collagen for Halal Industry. He was also one out of four Indonesian academicians who was presented the Habibie Award XV in 2013 in medical science and bioctechnology. In 2018, as a pioneer of halal science, he received the King Faisal Prize Laureate in Service to Islam category.
