The event was officially opened by Vice Chancellor I of the University of Jember, Prof. Drs. Slamin, M.Comp.Sc., Ph.D. “Physics is the foundation, and there are famous scientists from the field of physics, so this event is very appropriate to be held as a place to share information from speakers until the parallel session later,” he said. Prof. Slamin also quoted a conversation between Albert Einstein and Charlie Chaplin. “What I admire most about your art is its universality. You don’t say a word, but the whole world understands you,” Einstein told Chaplin. Chaplin replied to this remark: “That’s right. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say.”
Before becoming Chair of the 4th SENAFIS Committee in 2023, Dr. Sutisna, S.Pd., M.Sc., said that SENAFIS has been a regular biannual event since 2015. “This time SENAFIS was attended by 91 participants, with 56 of them as speakers; although it was small, the distribution of participants was quite even from several universities in Indonesia,” he explained.
