The contest is a concept of exhibition and presentation where each invention gets a table with a jury in which the question and answer system is in English. The tools that should be provided in this event are posters, brochures, articles and invention products. Jurors from various countries, spinning around each table and asking questions with inventors. The description of the work, product excellence, implementation and subject matter of the patent becomes a mandatory question of the jury. In the journey, the team from BEM KM UNY always has many obstacles such as time management between them, trial and preparation. But for the crackers PKM Department in BEM KM UNY, constraints is a challenge that must be sought way out together because cohesiveness is the main determining factor. Hopefully all UNY colleagues and students of Indonesia always give great contribution to his country. The International Competition is an annual event held by the State Library of Malaysia with MNNF Network Malatsia and several other international partners. This event is followed by several inventors from various countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Vietnam, USA and some other countries where participants are categorized into 4 classes: Classed A: Professional Science and Engineering, Classed B: Preofessional Science, Engineering and Technology, Classed C: Higher Institution Student and Classed D: School Students. The team from BEM KM UNY belonging to the Classed C: Higher Institution category with the invention and innovation specifications is a very strong challenge because there are so many participants from other countries who bring enough advanced work and have advanced research and even some who already have certain awards and has patent rights.
