2001 ATIP Report Abstracts: Part 3
This report contains short abstracts, a few sentences, for each of the ATIP year 2001 Reports. A typical ATIP Report is in two parts, one public portion, and one subscriber portion, although this report is totally public. In 2001, ATIP produced 58 reports (including this one) on technology developments in and around Asia. The following is the titles of the 21st through 30th reports (see the rest at the URL above or in this series on the GLOCOM Platform).
- ATIP01.021 : Mixed Reality (ISRM'01 & MiRai'01)
- ATIP01.022 : Bioinformatics Activities in Korea
- ATIP01.023 : Computational Nanotechnology in Japan
- ATIP01.024 : Snapshot of HPC in Indonesia

ATIP01.021 : Mixed Reality (ISRM'01 & MiRai'01)
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes ISMR'01 (International Symposium on Mixed Reality), and MiRai'01 (presenting the final results of the Mixed Reality Systems Lab activities), both held 14-15 March 2001 in Yokohama Japan. These events were part of a "virtual reality week" in Japan that also included the large IEEE conference, VR'01, Virtual Reality 2001, which was described in a previous ATIP report.
Date: 9 May 2001
ATIP01.022 : Bioinformatics Activities in Korea
ABSTRACT: An international symposium on bioinformatics was held at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Korea on November 22~23, 2000 attracting more than 300 Korean researchers in biotechnology and computer science fields. This report provides an overview of bioinformatics activities in Korea based on the presentations, discussions and interviews at the symposium, supplemented by ATIPís independent assessment.
Date: 15 May 2001
ATIP01.023 : Computational Nanotechnology in Japan
ABSTRACT: Advanced and Next Generation Simulation for Nanotechnology, a symposium in Tokyo, organized by the Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) and convened in Tokyo in mid-February 2001, provided for a good opportunity to scrutinize the state of advanced computing applications in the nanoscience and nanotechnology field. While focusing mainly on the RIST symposium, this report also provides some information on selected on-going efforts in computational nanoscience in Japan and discusses forthcoming funding schemes that target advanced computing applications in the nanoscience and nanotechnology field.
Date: 22 May 2001
ATIP01.024 : Snapshot of HPC in Indonesia
ABSTRACT: This short report summarizes the current state of High Performance Computing in Indonesia.
Date: 29 May 2001
ATIP01.025 : Molecular Self Assembly in Japan
ABSTRACT: Research in Japan on self-assembly in the context of molecular devices and electronics has been investigated in this report. Research results that could prove useful for the design of such devices were selected and are described briefly.
Date: 5 Jun 2001
ATIP01.026 : Nano-Manufacturing in Japan
ABSTRACT: A symposium on "nano-manufacturing" was held on February 16, 2001 in Tokyo to discuss the role and importance of nano fabrication and assembly in manufacturing technology. The symposium was co-organized by the Manufacturing Science and Technology Center (MSTC), the Micromachine Center, and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). This indicates a possibility that "nano-manufacturing" may be the research theme of a forthcoming funding initiative by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). In this report, we outline the highlights of the symposium and contemplate its implications.
Date: 12 Jun 2001
ATIP01.027 : Computational Laser Physics in Japan
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes research in computational laser-plasma physics in Japan. Efforts are strongly dominated by two major laboratories that operate large experimental facilities and also have laser-plasma simulation groups that closely collaborate with the experimenters. A few smaller groups are also active. While the research in Japan in generally comparable with that in the United States and Europe there are specific areas where the Japanese are particularly strong. The report describes the more important current activities of the simulation research groups and how they are related to experiments or applications.
Date: 19 June 2001
ATIP01.028 : CCGrid
ABSTRACT: This report provides a brief introduction to CCGrid, the First IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid, which was held on May 15-18, 2001, in Brisbane, Australia.
Date: 26 Jun 2001
ATIP01.029 : Quantum Information & Communications in France
ABSTRACT: This report provides an overview of R&D activities in France related to quantum information communication technology trends and developments. Projects in 14 laboratories, associated with quantum cryptography, computing, and teleportation are described.
Date: 3 Jul 2001
ATIP01.030 : iHPC Update
ABSTRACT: This report provides an update on iHPC, Singapore's Institute of High Performance Computing, focusing on recent accomplishments and the Institute's HPC Symposium, held 22 May 2001.
