TIIMI 2009 INDONESIAN STUDENT INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE 2009
(Temu Ilmiah Internasional Mahasiswa Indonesia 2009)
Indonesian Student Association in the United Kingdom (PPI-UK) has been successfully and continuously organising the Indonesian Student International Scientific Conference over the past three years. This year, the conference focuses on Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in Indonesia.
Small and Medium Enterprise in Indonesia
Â· Despite the absence of an established definition of SME in the Indonesian context, SMEs have indeed been playing an important role in Indonesiaâ™s economic growth and development. In hindsight, particularly it was since the Asian economic calamity that hit the country back in 1997 that SMEs gained more attention as they have been proven to be the resilient to the crises. The survival of the Indonesian economy during the whole economic predicament, up to the point when the country started to recover, to a large part owed to the SME sector.
Now a decade after the Asian economic crisis, when the world economy is again badly hit by another recession, we revisit the importance of SMEs. Clearly, the development of SME is now an important concern as it influences the national development in a larger scale than before.
Taking up this concern into our endeavour, we are proposing this yearâ™s TIIMI Conference theme:
âœSmall and Medium Enterprises in Indonesian Development â" Multi-dimensional Perspectiveâ
The conference aims to provide an intellectual forum to exchange ideas around the role of SMEs in the Indonesian development. As the conference gathers Indonesian intellectuals across different fields, the focus is to collect various points of view and expertises and then position them in order to better understand the development of SMEs in the country. The conference also anticipates some discussion on the facilitating and hindering factors of SMEs development, again from different perspectives. Then, it aspires to lead the discussion towards the path, or roadmap, of the future prospects of SMEs in Indonesia. This way, not only will the conference be beneficial as an academic exchange forum, but it will be more significantly contributing to the debate of SMEâ™s development in Indonesia.
As inferred from the above rationale, this conference is calling for contribution from any fields of study to engage into the discussion of the multi-dimensional perspective of SMEâ™s development, which is to include, but not limited to:
a. Economic dimension
1. Economic assumptions/ model/paradigms
2. Finance and accounting
3. Econometrics data, trend and pattern
4. Management and administration
5. Social responsibilities
6. Other economic dimensions related to SMEs; please propose.
b. Technological dimension
1. Technological change and environment
2. Innovation and innovative processes
3. Technology transfer
4. Technology management
5. Technology and society
6. Other technological dimensions underpinning SMEâ™s development; please propose.
c. Social and cultural dimension
2. Intellectual Property
3. Health insurance
4. Education for society
5. Youth development
6. Other social and cultural dimensions affecting the dynamics of SMEs; please propose.
d. Political and policy dimension
1. Government agenda and public policies
2. National stability
3. Political reform
4. Political support and interest
5. Political security development
6. Other political and policy dimensions governing and shaping SMEâ™s development; please propose.
We call for appropriate abstracts, which should follow specifications.

Â· The abstracts will be reviewed by the Reviewer Board Members (non-member of PPIUK, Indonesian academics with international reputation and are currently in the UK). Upon review process, accepted abstracts will be announced. Shall the authors be willing to present their works in the conference, they have to submit the final paper along with the presentation materials. The final papers will be published in the conference proceeding which will be distributed to the participants (in print or electronically in CD) in the workshop.
In the presentation sessions, each paper will be commented by appointed discussants, participants, and relevant chair (who is member of the Reviewer Board) who will be giving advice on the ways to improve the paper, perhaps for future publication purpose. Each presenter will also act as a discussant for another presenter in the same panel. The board of reviewers will prepare both the presenter and discussant list once the accepted abstracts are confirmed.
