ATIP02.001 : Molecular Motors Research in Europe
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes developments in one area of nanotechnology in Europe focusing on molecular motors. Two scientific meetings with mainly European attendance, at University of Warwick, United Kingdom (UK), and Frankfurt am Main, Germany, provide the primary input. The former meeting focused on protein molecular motors, while the latter focused on non-biomolecular motors.

ATIP02.002 : CSI2001
ABSTRACT: This report reviews CSI 2001, the 36th annual convention of the Computer Society of India, the premier body of computer and information technology (IT) professionals in India, held November 2001. The convention attracts top IT experts and policy-makers in India and sets the tone for many future actions. The report outlines the guarded optimism displayed and the strengths and weaknesses of Indian IT sectors discussed. It also summarizes the best
presentations from the multiple forums of the convention, viz. invited and contributed paper sessions, industrial forum and industrial exhibition. Some important areas discussed in the report are IT policies of the Indian government, use of speech and biometrics, data structure and management, image processing and networks and E-commerce.

ATIP02.003 : Pacific Graphics 2001
ABSTRACT: Pacific Graphics 2001, the Ninth Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications, was held October 16 - 18, 2001, in Tokyo, Japan. Conference topics included computer graphics systems, geometric modeling and algorithms, rendering techniques and illumination computation, volume graphics, human computer interface, computer animation, virtual reality, scientific visualization, and applications of computer graphics in arts, education, engineering, entertainment, and medicine. Pacific Graphics is recognized as one of the most important conferences on computer graphics, together with such conferences as SIGGRAPH (North America), Eurographics (Europe) and Computer Graphics International CGI (various locations). This report summarizes the most interesting and significant papers presented by Asian researchers.

ATIP02.004 : Japan Quantum Information Technology
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes a two-day Japan Quantum Information Technology 5th Workshop (QIT5) held November 11-12, 2001, at NTT Basic Research Lab located in Atsugi near Tokyo. This workshop was sponsored by the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers. Most of the researchers in Japan active in quantum information science and technology presented their most recent results and discussed the future of this field. This report summarizes the workshop. We also comment on the trends and characteristics of quantum information technology development in Japan.

ATIP02.005 : Asian Nanotech Update
ABSTRACT: This report gives a summary of the latest Asian government nanotech policy developments, programs and funding information, including China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Australia. We also provide insights on nanotech policy in selected countries and comment on regional development trends.
ATIP offers a full range of information services including reports, assessments, briefings, visits, sample procurements, workshops, cultural/business sensitivity training, and liaison activities, all performed by our on-the- ground multilingual experts.
