The symposium and workshop of the Global COE program "Global Center for Education and Research on Human Security Engineering for Asian Megacities" was held at Seminar room Novotel Hotel Nusa Dua Bali on October 7th and 8th, 2009. The first day was used for symposium. Purposes are to disseminate recent research and also to establish a new discipline and collaboration of energy security in Indonesia. The second day was for a one-day workshop. The workshop was conducted to disseminate for Indonesian's students about human security engineering for Asian mega cities.


In the first day, Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka gave an opening remark about recent research and future plans relating to human security engineering issues.
Then, Prof. Djoko Santoso addressed keynote speech about ITB's recent and urgent research including environmental problems in Jakarta and also some development methods for energy security and disaster prevention in Indonesia.
Eko Widianto talked about time-lapse microgravity for CO2 storage, its consequencies and also Enhanced Oil recovery (EOR). He has explained Pertamina involvement so far on Carbon Captures and Storage (CCS) and EOR. In addition, he pointed available technology in monitoring CO2 dynamics in the reservoir and proposed its alternatives. Lastly he gave examples field studies in Pertamina that have been conducted to monitor reservoir behavior using time-lapse microgravity.
Wawan Gunawan addressed application of time-lapse microgravity for ground water lowering and subsidence in residential area of Jakarta. To convince audiences about risks of subsidence, he showed his recent pictures obtained in the residential area in Jakarta.
Khrisna Pribadi gave a presentation about mainstreaming disaster risk reduction in urban management of Indonesian. He described to focus on urban areas. Since in the area there are a lot of causes of disaster i.e. more people, rapid population growth, urbanization and migration. Effects of disasters include devastation of industrial and commercial activities, disruption, civil unrest etc. He also pointed new challenge for urban disaster reduction such as building designs and construction, permit and control process.
Prof. Hasanuddin Z.A. gave a presentation about geodetic monitoring of land subsidence in Jakarta Bandung cities. The monitoring includes by using leveling, GPS and InSAR methods. He described causes of land subsidence that are groundwater extraction, load of construction, natural consolidation and tectonic as well. In order to measure and to monitor the rate of subsidence, bench marks have already been built covering Jakarta and Bandung cities.
The second day was the workshop that was attended mostly by post graduate students and researchers of ITB. Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka talked about CCS and its field studies around the world. He also mentioned the importance of studying CCS since the world faces global warming issues.
Then presentations from selected students, there were six students who gave presentations with various topics ranging from application time-lapse microgravity, karst mapping using Mise a La Masse, monitoring land subsidence using InSAR for cities and CRS and imaging methods for seismic processing. All of student's presentations were basically used stuff of their final project during the study.
