Our postgraduate students organized our first Postgraduate Research Seminar (SEMSIS 2013) held on 7 September 2013 at the Gong Badak Campus. Congratulations to the organizing committee, for the event was highly successful, with 130 papers submitted and a good number of national and also international participants in attendance. We are particularly grateful to the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Yahaya Ibrahim for his overall support of the event and the presence of the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic, Prof. Dr. Amran Ahmed for officiating on the day. Congratulations to all those whom were selected as winners for best submissions. The Graduate School intends to encourage a regional postgraduate seminar next year, followed by a wider international postgraduate conference thereafter.
