KUCHING: More than 80 in­di­vid­u­als com­pris­ing re­searchers and aca­demi­cians are tak­ing part in an in­au­gu­ral In­ter­na­tional Sym­po­sium on Ap­plied Struc­tural Equa­tion Mod­el­ling (Sasem) 2017 here un­til to­mor­row (Oct 14).

The event is or­gan­ised by Sarawak Re­search So­ci­ety in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sarawak Con­ven­tion Bu­reau and Sarawak Tourism Board.

Its chair Prof T Ra­mayah said two renowned ex­perts Prof Marko Sarst­edt, a prom­i­nent mar­ket­ing and Struc­tural Equa­tion Mod­el­ling (SEM) ex­pert from Ger­many and Prof Peter Sed­don, an ex­pert in com­put­ing and in­for­ma­tion sys­tem from Aus­tralia are ex­pected to de­liver their key­note ad­dresses.

“We have planned an ex­cit­ing pro­gramme that in­cludes a presym­po­sium work­shop, tech­ni­cal pa­per pre­sen­ta­tions, post sym­po­sium sem­i­nar, and a gala din­ner and award pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony.

“We also have planned for tech­ni­cal demon­stra­tions and nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­for­mal net­work­ing,” he said.

Ra­mayah hoped all del­e­gates get new in­sights and up­dated knowl­edge from the speeches and pa­pers pre­sented at the sym­po­sium.

“I also hope you have the op­por­tu­nity to get to know each other and ex­pand your net­work­ing dur­ing this con­fer­ence,” he added.

Sasem 2017 is an aca­demic con­fer­ence fo­cus­ing on the use of SEM and re­lated mat­ters.

It is a plat­form for aca­demics and stu­dents to share their re­search out­put and net­work with re­searchers in the com­mu­nity re­gard­less of their dis­ci­plines and ar­eas of in­ter­est.
