Welcome to the Asian University Presidents Forum 2018

Petra Christian University is very honored to host the 17th Asian University Presidents Forum (AUPF) 2018. I cordially invite you to join us in this year’s Forum in Surabaya, Indonesia, on 6-8 November 2018. The theme of the 17th AUPF meeting and conference this year will be “Disruption at the Crossroads: Innovative Engagement and Future Challenges for Higher Education". Leaders in education need to identify the potentials of disruptive technologies for their benefit in order to avert the disruptive powers of these technologies. This conference attempts to address an array of issues around innovation and disruption. We do hope that this conference could serve as a platform for participants, particularly Asian leaders in higher education, to exchange ideas, broaden insights and networking in anticipating possible future challenges relating to innovative disruption. We are looking forward to seeing you in Surabaya. We believe that you will enjoy the activities of the forum as well as your stay in this dynamic and green city.
