Memories of Dean Mirna Adriani

School of Computing at the National University of Singapore would like to thank Professor Adriani for her contributions and collaborations with us. 

Professor Adriani, as a faculty member and Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science of University of Indonesia, communicated her passion of computer engineering and computer science and was a role model for her students and colleagues. She motivated many to engage in research not only in information retrieval, a field in which she had been an active researcher since her doctoral work at the University of Glasgow, but in many other areas of computer science. Several of her students chose to join our PhD programmes encouraged by herself.

Professor Adriani has been instrumental in establishing a lasting collaboration between our two Schools. Her continuing effort to create a community spirit between our schools were officialised with the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding. She collaborated with us to organize research workshops, summer schools and conferences.
Professor Mirna was a nice, caring and generous person.
