2001 ATIP Report Abstracts: Part 4




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 31st through 40th reports (see the rest at the URL above or in this series on the GLOCOM Platform).

  • ATIP01.031 : High Performance Computing in Thailand
  • ATIP01.032 : Korean Bioinformatics Industry
  • ATIP01.033 : The Earth Simulator
  • ATIP01.034 : Computational Physics in Australia
  • ATIP01.035 : RIKEN `Soft` Nanotechnology R&D Highlights
  • ATIP01.036 : Automation at the Port of Singapore
  • ATIP01.037 : Aspects of Present & Future Industrial Electronics
  • ATIP01.038 : MOEMS for Telecommunications in Europe
  • ATIP01.039: Japan Nanoelectronics R&D Overview
  • ATIP01.040 : 3G/4G Next-Generation Wireless Activities in Japan


2001 ATIP Technology Reports are numbered sequentially, atip01.001, atip01.002, etc.

ATIP01.031 : High Performance Computing in Thailand

ABSTRACT: High Performance Computing in Thailand (HPC) is largely confined to government or government-supported organizations with limited interest (yet) from industry. This report summaries current activities and highlights several projects that are state-of-the art. We also briefly discuss the Annual National Symposium on Computational Science and Engineering (ANSCSE 2001), held 19-20 June 2001.

Date: 17 Jul 2001
ATIP01.032 : Korean Bioinformatics Industry

ABSTRACT: With genomics and post-genomics related activities increasing in Korea, the importance of bioinformatics, not only as a tool but as a viable industry in its own rights, is increasingly recognized. This report provides an overview of the emerging Korean bioinformatics industry.

Date: 24 Jul 2001
ATIP01.033 : The Earth Simulator

ABSTRACT: The Earth Simulator located in Yokohama, Japan is projected to be one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, reaching peak operating performance of 40 Teraflops when completed in the Spring of 2002. Additionally, the Earth Simulator Project is expected to be a breakthrough in bridging the geoscience and information science fields. This report discusses the current status of the project as well as its background and prospects for future use.

Date: 31 Jul 2001
ATIP01.034 : Computational Physics in Australia

ABSTRACT: This report provides a brief analysis of the status of computational physics in Australia -- and to a lesser extent computational chemistry -- and a comparison with overseas research in these fields as occasioned by two recent conferences. The first, the Conference on Computational Physics 2000 was held on the Gold Coast, Queensland 3–8 December, 2000; and the second, the Sixth Australian Molecular Modeling Conference, was held in Melbourne, Victoria 5-8 December, 2000. The report synthesizes the main topical streams of these two Conferences, along with current trends and developments.

Date: 7 Aug 2001
ATIP01.035: RIKEN `Soft` Nanotechnology R&D Highlights

ABSTRACT: This report summarizes the 'soft' Nanotechnology policy and activities at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) in Japan. It provides general information about RIKEN, its Frontier Research System (FRS) and focuses on the Highlights of its Spatio-temporal Function Materials Research Group within the FRS where the major 'soft' Nanotechnology research is carried out.

Date: 14 Aug 2001
ATIP01.036 : Automation at the Port of Singapore

ABSTRACT: This report describes the Pasir Panjang Terminal, the newest of the six terminals at the Port of Singapore. This terminal is one of the world's most highly automated. This report focuses on automation technologies that are employed, practical issues associated with their use, and plans for additional automation.

Date: 17 Aug 2001
ATIP01.037 : Aspects of Present & Future Industrial Electronics

ABSTRACT: This report investigates the present status and future trends of some areas of industrial electronics as outlined at the recently held IEEE-sponsored international symposium on industrial electronics, called ISIE-2001, in Pusan, Korea. Achievements on many issues of current and future interest were addressed, with over 400 peer-reviewed papers from academia and industry presented.

Date: 21 Aug 2001
ATIP01.038 : MOEMS for Telecommunications in Europe

ABSTRACT: This report presents a summary of European activities in micro opto electro mechanical systems (MOEMS) in the context of components for telecommunications. It covers work in Sweden, Germany, UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Switzerland and surveys some of the best developments at companies as well as government research institutes and universities. Fifteen figures illustrate a variety of projects. A table also shows several EU activities.

Date: 28 Aug 2001
ATIP01.039: Japan Nanoelectronics R&D Overview

ABSTRACT: This report provides an overview on Japan Nanoelectronics policy and R&D programs. We outline the trends and characteristics in Japanese nanoelectronics development over the last 15 years. The nanoelectronics areas we focus on include Semiconductor Electronics, Molecular Electronics, and Quantum Information Technology. We comment on the outlook of Japan nanoelectronics development in Japan. In the appendix we summarize the recent restructuring of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

Date: 4 Sep 2001
ATIP01.040 : 3G/4G Next-Generation Wireless Activities in Japan

ABSTRACT: This report describes trends in the transition toward 3G and 4G wireless telephony in Japan, including market drivers and technology requirements.
