ATIP01.001 : Algorithms & Architectures for Parallel Processing (ICA3PP 2000)
ABSTRACT: This report provides a summary of the fourth International Conference on Algorithms & Architectures for Parallel Processing (ICA3PP), held in Hong Kong, 13-17 Dec 2000.
Date: 12 Jan 2001
ATIP01.002 : HPC in India
ABSTRACT: High Performance Computing (HPC) R&D in India is summarized based on the two primary HPC conferences, ADCOM (Advanced Computing & Communications), and HiPC (High Performance Computing 2000), held December 2000 in Cochin and Bangalore, respectively.
Date: 18 Jan 2001
ATIP01.003 : NDBC 2000
ABSTRACT: NDBC 2000, the seventeenth National Database Conference (NDBC), was held in Baoding China, 9-10 Oct 2000. As a window into database R&D in China, this report summarizes the conference and also provides insights on database developments in China.
Date: 24 Jan 2001
ATIP01.004 : IWALT Workshop on Advanced Learning Technologies
ABSTRACT: This report describes the first IEEE workshop on Advanced Learning Technologies held in New Zealand in December 2000 (IWALT). It reports on the most significant papers presented and attempts to distill the conclusions drawn from the papers, panel sessions, and other discussion. IWALT was the first event sponsored by the IEEE in this area through its Learning Technology Task Force. This report should be of value to anyone who is interested in applying such technologies to teaching and learning.
Date: 1 Feb 2001
ATIP01.005 : Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference 2000
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes technical presentations at the Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APMC 2000) held in Sydney, Australia, from December 3-6, 2000. The four-day conference highlighted microwave theory and technologies from the points-of-view of government, university and industry research in countries of the Asia-Pacific region, notably Japan, Australia and US/Canada. Broadly, the Conference hoped to address the following questions: What can we expect in the way of new developments and applications? What advances do we need to make to improve the products and services our industries provide? What is the current state of research in the area, and what do we see as the challenges for the future?

ATIP01.006 : Bumrungrad’s Hospital Information System
ABSTRACT: The world’s hospitals use a variety of information systems. Frequently, a heterogeneous computing environment creates integration problems, as well as a difficult and confusing situation for users who frequently must contend with different interfaces. Systems tend to be expensive, and there are also high costs for support and staffing. This report discusses a solution to the “hospital I.S. problem” in the form of a new type of fully integrated Hospital Information System, now being developed at Bumrungrad hospital in Bangkok, in partnership with a European-based start-up, that uses widely available hardware and software components.

ATIP01.007 : Trends in Neural Networks in Asia and Australasia
ABSTRACT: This report provides a brief critical analysis of the status of Neural Networks R&D in Asia and particularly in Australia occasioned by the 2000 IEEE Workshop on Neural Networks for Signal Processing held in Sydney, Australia. The main topics of the Workshop are discussed, along with current trends and developments. Although the Workshop was international in nature, the attendance was predominantly Asian and Australian, allowing a relatively detailed picture of the regional strengths in this field.

ATIP01.008 : Japan Biological Informatics Consortium
ABSTRACT: This report provides an overview and evaluation of the activities of the Japan Biological Informatics Consortium (JBiC). JBiC was set up in November 1998 as a voluntary organization under the supervision of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry with the mission to promote bioinformatics research and applications in Japan. This report discusses the background of JBiC's inception, its organization and its main activities and research programs. This report also critically assesses JBiC's likely impact on the development of the commercial biotechnology industry in Japan.
Date: 27 Feb 2001
ATIP01.009 : CTC 2000
ABSTRACT: CTC 2000, the first in a national conference series on test technology, was held in Beijing China, 16-18 October 2000. This report summarizes the conference and also provides insights on test technology research and development in China.
Date: 2 Mar 2001
ATIP01.010 : China Telecom 2001
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes the recent China Telecom 2001 conference, which took place in Honolulu on January 11 through 13, 2001. The conference is evaluated, and points of interest are drawn from main presentations. Specific areas targeted include general telecommunications, VoIP, broadband infrastructure, and the regulatory environment in China.
