Scientific conferences delight me. I attended that 32nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the National Academy of Science and Technology last July 15, 2010. It was my first time to attend the event. Professor Jaderick P. Pabico asked me to present our poster entitled: A Cellular Automata Approach for Wide-Area Simulation of Runoff and Flooding: The Case of the Laguna Lake Catchment.
The gathering was a big time event. There were a lot of Filipino scientists present. Several speakers, who are NAST Academicians and National Scientists, gave talks that address the progress of our beloved country in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The awarding ceremony was very inspiring, particularly the Outstanding Young Scientist (OYS) award.
I am proud that our institute is home to an Outstanding Young Scientist (Prof. Jaderick P. Pabico) and a NAST Academician (Dr. Eliezer A. Albacea)!
