Universitas Indonesia International Psychology Symposium for Undergraduate Research (UIPSUR) is an international research event that is conducted by the Faculty of Psychology Universitas Indonesia, to provide an opportunity for undergraduate students all over the world for showcasing their research to the scientific community. As one of the oldest Faculties of Psychology in Indonesia, our aim is to be the leader in developing and applying psychological science in Indonesia and the world. We hope that through this symposium, high quality studies and findings on psychological researches from different perspectives will be presented and encourage further development on the respective fields. Additionally, this symposium will also enable psychology students from all over Indonesia and the globe, to interact and to build a strong network among their peers.
We had successfully held the 1st UIPSUR at November 18th-19th, 2016 in Faculty of Psychology, Universitas Indonesia. The theme for 1st UIPSUR was “Promoting Psychological Contribution in a Globalized Community”. Opened with keynote speeches from Dr. Henry Otgaar (Maastricht Unversity) and Dr. Bagus Takwin (Universitas Indonesia), our 1st symposium was attended by undergraduate students from several countries, including universities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, and Netherland.
The 2017 UIPSUR will be our 2nd symposium. This year, our symposium’s theme is “Psychology in Post-Millennial Era”. As we are facing a rapid transformation era nowadays, the post-millennial era, we are in the transition of experiencing swift advancement itself. The limitations among places and people are gradually fading away, as we are now easily interconnected in this world. However, the fast changing presumably will bring gap among generations, from baby-boomer generation to generation X, Y, and even Z. Hopefully, through this symposium, we could learn the up-to-date researches conducted by undergraduate students regarding psychological phenomenon in this era.
