UGM. A new PhD graduated from Kyoto was appointed to carry out a professional conference. He suggested to elevate it to be an international conference. Initially, his seniors were doubtful. But he insisted. Contacting the IEEE Indonesia Section a couple months ago, when I was just elected to be the Chairman; he asked whether the Section might help. But surely one of our programs this year is to support academics in Indonesia in professional activities, including organising IEEE sponsored conference with assured quality. Then we had a series of online discussion, focused on the requirements, etc. UGM submitted the conference proposal to the IEEE, and we approved it. The HQ needed a couple weeks to verify the proposal. But it went very well.
