Pre-forum Programs


In line with the 12th AUPF to be held in Langkawi and Perlis, Malaysia, on  6 - 9th October 2013, four pre-forum programs are proposed. This is so as to leverage the expertise belonging to AUPF universities, and to provide sustainability of the Forum.

In the last few years, a similar initiative has been carried out, led by Dongseo University and several others, in the form of the Asian Summer Program (ASP). The success of the ASP, alongside the appreciation for the need to leverage expertise and to enhance sustainability, has inspired the inception of the pre-forum workshops.

It is hoped that the programs will pave the way for proper ‘Work Clusters’ to be established in the near future.

Library Consortia, Resource Sharing and Future Networks

Welcome to Forum on Library Consortia, Resource Sharing and Future Networks!

This forum is organized in conjunction with Asian University Presidents Forum (AUPF) 2013 which is hosted by Universiti Malaysia Perlis or in short, UniMAP. Our university is located in Perlis. The smallest state in Malaysia, Perlis lies at the northern part of the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and has Satun and Songkhla Provinces of Thailand on its northern border.



Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Many scientists are interested because the nanomaterials show significant different in term of properties of as compared with materials at larger scale. Today's scientists and engineers are finding a wide variety of ways to deliberately make materials at the nanoscale to take advantage of their enhanced properties such as higher strength, lighter weight, increased control of light spectrum, and greater chemical reactivity than their larger-scale counterparts.

Sustainable Campus

The issue of sustainability is rising in importance all over the world. It cannot be denied that much must be done in order to slow the pace of the planet’s overall environmental decay. In response, universities should play their part by ensuring the effectiveness of energy and resource usage in their everyday operations. University campuses are in actual fact living laboratories where good sustainability practices should be implemented.
