Research on Question Answering System (QAS) has been done mainly in English. Unfortunately, for Indonesian, it is still rarely explored whereas Indonesian is the official language used more than 250 million people. Research in the area of Indonesian Question Answering System (IQAS) began in 2005s, and since then only few number of IQAS have been developed. One of the important issues in IQAS is Answer Validation (AV), which is a system that can determine the correctness of QAS. To identify the future scope of research in this area, the need of comprehensive survey on IQAS and AV arises naturally. The goals of this survey are to find the cutting-edge method used in AV and to prove that AV has not been implemented on IQAS. Based on the results, we suggest new opportunities and research challenges for IQAS community.
