     Northern Iloilo State University President Bobby Gerardo formally opened the 5th Regional Research Conference at the Mini Theater on October 5, 2022.
     The conference will run from October 5-7, 2022, and will provide a platform to showcase the various research outputs and innovations of the different state universities and colleges (SUCs) in Region VI.
     "Northern Iloilo State University is committed to become a leader in producing knowledge that could help improve the way of life, enhance the teaching and learning environment, and transfer technology to the community to help elevate their economic conditions," said Dr. Gerardo.

     Among the participants were from the NISU-Main Campus and its external campuses (Barotac Viejo, Batad, Concepcion, Lemery, Victorino Salcedo, Ajuy), Capiz State University-Pilar Campus, Deped Ajuy, Carlos Hilado Memorial State University, and West Visayas State University.
     "This conference is a strategic move to intensify our local, regional, and international linkages leading to an amplified role in research, extension, and innovation and transforming workforce into globally competitive faculty of the university," Dr. Allemar Jhone P. Delima, NISU's Vice President for Research and Extension Services, noted.
     On the other hand, Prof. Yungcheol Byun, Department of Computer Engineering, Jeju National University, also shared inputs on his major area of Anomaly Detection with the use of Artificial Intelligence.
     Meanwhile, the first day of the event commenced with two parallel sessions of the different clusters namely Agriculture, Fisheries, Education, and Social Studies with the presence of caliber external evaluators and internal evaluators.
     "I’m quite familiar with my studies. With regards to presenting it to the external and internal panel, the results were good. As for the interaction between the panelists and the presentation, it was congenial and they were approachable. Also, proper inputs were delivered by our external and internal panelists," Jomar Von Laforteza, Laboratory Assistant of the Central Science Laboratory, NISU, explained.
     Dr. April Aura Andong Cacho from NISU-Lemery Campus, a presenter of the Education and Social Studies cluster, shared that she invested more time in time management in constructing and finalizing documents and expected the fear of facing the panelists. She added that there was socialization with others in terms of establishing discourse and interaction and beaming with camaraderie.
     In addition, a plenary talk was held with Dr. Andrew Eusebio S. Tan, Vice President, Office of Research and Extension Services, Carlos Hidalgo Memorial State University.
