Information Systems Chief Information Officer Forum (IS CIO Forum) is a gateway for Information Systems leaders and professionals across different sectors from government, industry, to academia. This forum is initiated to facilitate them to mingle with their fellow and to discuss about the latest trends and issues in Information Systems. The same event last year only focused on academic side. This year, we aim to connect academia with industry as well as to highlight talent crisis issues, a spoken gap between academia and industry. The event will be held as a conference consists of panel discussions, talk shows, and pitches. 

IS CIO Forum 2018 will be opened with the Opening Speech from Mr. Rudiantara, our Minister of Communication and Informatics of the Republic of Indonesia. It will be followed by Keynote speech from Mr. Triawan Munaf, Chairman of Indonesia Creative Economy Council (BEKRAF), and Remarks from Vice President of Indonesia Chamber of Commerce (KADIN), Mr. M Lutfi.

The CIO Forum 2018 Day 1 comprises one Main Panel, CEO Talks, Director Panel, CIO Talks, 4 IS Profession Panels, and 2 special pitches from our sponsors. The speakers will share the lesson learned from their profession, their view about opportunities and challenges faced by IS/IT professionals, and other valuable insights on people development topic. 

We will also have IS Career Festival which run parallel during the two-day event. We believe that this is the first career festival in Indonesia focusing on IS/IT career or professions. We collaborate with to manage this IS Career Festival. In congruence with our focus in IS/IT talents, we also try to simplify the job application process by going digital to avoid excessive use of printed documents. All the applicants are only need to scan the company QR code that we provided to send their job application and visit the company stand to have a conversation with the company HR teams or representatives. Most importantly, this IS Career Festival is free of charge.

This event will also follow up many questions arose in the Information Systems Study Leaders Forum about professions or roles should be conducted by IS professionals. The Information Systems Study Leaders Forum host more than 100 IS Study leaders from universities in Indonesia.
