Konferensi ini diselenggarakan secara khusus dalam rangka purnabakti Prof. Dr. Ir. Yahdi Zaim mulai April 2021. Konferensi ini akan memaparkan dan membahas aspek integratif dari bidang-bidang yang ditekuni Prof. Yahdi Zaim selama karirnya di bidang keilmuan paleontologi dan geologi Kuarter. Sejak tahun 1990-an Prof. Zaim telah aktif terlibat dan mengembangkan ilmu paleontologi dan geologi Kuarter di berbagai lokasi di Indonesia bersama rekan-rekan dan kolaborator dari dalam dan luar negeri. Dalam lingkup pendidikan, Prof. Dr. Yahdi Zaim telah berhasil membimbing dan meluluskan lebih dari 80 mahasiswa baik di bidang geologi pada umumnya maupun bidang lain yang lebih spesifik.

Acara penting ini merupakan kesempatan bagi rekan-rekan Prof. Zaim serta mahasiswa beliau yang masih aktif dibimbing serta yang telah lulus untuk menghormati karirnya dan menandai perannya dalam perkembangan cabang paleontologi dan geologi Kuarter di Indonesia. Presentasi pada konferensi ini akan dibagi menjadi 3 sesi, yaitu: “Human Palaeontology and Geoarchaeology”, “General Paleontology” dan “Quaternary Geology and Sedimentology” (program tentatif terlampir di poster).

Konferensi ini terbuka untuk umum dan tidak dipungut biaya. Untuk pendaftaran konferensi, silahkan isi dan kirimkan formulir online (bit.ly/ConferenceYahdiZaim) hingga 20 Maret 2021.

This is a special conference to celebrate Prof. Dr. Ir. Yahdi Zaim’s Retirement in April 2021. This conference will present and discuss integrative aspects of the fields in which Prof. Yahdi Zaim has been active throughout his career in palaeontology and Quaternary geology. Since the 1990’s Prof. Zaim has been actively involving and developing in palaeontology and Quaternary geology in various locations in Indonesia along with his colleagues and collaborators from Indonesia and abroad. In the educational scope, Prof. Dr. Yahdi Zaim has successfully supervised and graduated more than 80 students both in geology in general and in other more specific fields.

This important event is the principal opportunity for Prof. Zaim’s colleagues as well as current and former students to honor his career and mark his role in the development of the branch of palaeontology and Quaternary geology in Indonesia. Presentations at this conference will be divided into 3 sessions in which he actively developed, namely: “Human Palaeontology and Geoarchaeology”, “General Palaeontology” and “Quaternary Geology and Sedimentology” (Tentative program is attached in the poster).

This conference is open for public, the admission is free of charge and we very much hope that you are interested to participate. For registration to the conference, please fill in and submit the online form (bit.ly/ConferenceYahdiZaim) until 20 March 2021. The conference will take place online by using Zoom platform.
