SSYS – So what’s next?

SSYS came to an end last Friday, and we’re sure all of the participants enjoyed it a lot, especially those who gave us enthusiastic replies during the interviews!

We’re sorry for the lack of updates this week as the webmasters David and Chee Yi are having exams. We will post the list of winners for SSYS 2010 as soon as we get it from RECSAM.

Meanwhile, as you’re waiting for the winners’ list to be posted up, you can visit the forum and kick off discussion and interact with fellow SSYS participants, sharing your experiences and photos!

SSYS 2010: Insight

Webmasters’ Journal


Occasion: SSYS 2010

Time: 1430-1630 hours

We tweeted yesterday that we are going to RECSAM today to attend the presentation by the participants on their research projects. And, as promised, here are the pics!

We went there right after school ended and had our lunch (2 Big Macs, fries and Coke) in the car. When we reached there, the presentation session had already begun, but we went in and sat down. We met MAAYS mentors Dr. Kim and Ms. Ng as well.

The SEAMEO Hall was filled with participants from different countries. Although their accents were different, but it’s still a weird feeling to think that all humans are united under the English language, which is a comforting thought.

There are judges from different countries, and thinking that he will have an edge over the others, one participant said “Aligato“, which means thank you in Japanese, when he noticed one of the judges are Japanese.

Each group has 10 minutes to present on their research projects. Then, 2 minutes were given for the audience to express their doubts by asking questions.

We are going to attend a forum about “Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) As A Tool of Innovation Development in New Ventures” by Dr Helena Forsman on Friday. Stay tuned!

Happy New Year! From us @ MAAYS

Happy New Year! From us @ MAAYS

Dear valued members,

2009 had been a great year for us at MAAYS, and we are sure it was a great one for you too! The year 2009 is full of memories: happy, sad, surprising events, regardless, we should always keep a positive mind and keep our chins up. The year 2010 will be a promising one, so don’t forget to start planning!

For the year 2010, we plan to expand our online community, aiming for as many as 500 regular members for the forum. Besides that, we are planning to hold some forum-based online competitions, such as the Best Forummer of the Month Award, not to mention that the i2Discovery online activity is currently in the submission period, which means you can submit your entries right now! Take note that after due consideration, the MAAYS team has decided to extend the submission period for the scientific research projects, as to let more young researchers participate in this activity that promises hands-on experience on researching and writing a report. The new deadline for submission of your research papers falls on the 31st of January 2010. You may submit your research papers to the following email address:

We thank you for your support for the MAAYS online e-Research platform. We hope this new year will be a promising one for you, Happy New Year 2010!

Best regards,

The MAAYS Team
