ABOUT ICON

The Indonesian Students’ Association of University of New South Wales (PPIA UNSW), is proud to once again present our eye-opening and inspiring event, ICON, or Indonesian Ideas Conference, this upcoming May of 2018. A creative platform hosted by Indonesian students, that centres around idea sharing and inspiring our community to make an impact in our society.

We believe in having big dreams and even bigger passions! Therefore, we sought out to invite some of the biggest achievers from various fields to share their insights and experience through this fun and engaging conference. ICON aims to continue its vision to being the hub for innovation and excellence for generations of Indonesians to come; to make a difference in their respective lives.

Moreover, as PPIA UNSW also strongly believes in making a difference in our society, we too, aim to give back to the community. Therefore, all proceedings from this conference will be donated to “Yayasan Tangan Pengharapan”.


THEME 2018: “REBOOT: CTRL, ALT, DEL”

At present, we often adopt to the ideas and norms of our surroundings that have been labelled as the formula of success. Because of this, we occasionally forget of the possibility of other options; options we may truly be passionate about. By conforming however, we may be minimising the innovation within; the chance to create something bigger in our lives. Sometimes we need to reset our mind-set, to make way for new ideas and innovation. Therefore, ICON’s theme this year is REBOOT. Just like the keyboard command “ctrl + alt + del” that is used to restart a computer, we challenge you to REBOOT by:

Control (Ctrl) - Control your foresight

Alter (Alt) – Alter your mindset

Delete (Del) – Delete your fears

And REBOOT your life towards the direction of your passion; taking action today.


To discover, to develop and to take the first step. We strongly believe in encouraging individuals to not only discover, but also to shape their future to the way they envision it to be. To ignite the passion within and to turn ones’ dream into reality. For this theme, ICON will be divided into 3 segments – CTRL, ALT & DEL respectively. Each session will consist of either 1 or 2 speakers that will speak in relation to that session’s subject, and by the end of the event we hope that the audience will be able to REBOOT their future; inspired to take the first step and to live out their dreams to their full potential.

So what are you waiting for? Reboot with us, in this extraordinary event, because anything is achievable when it is driven by your passion towards greatness.
