ATIP03.006: Australasian Computer Science Week 2002

ABSTRACT: This report provides a brief critical analysis of the status of computer science in Australia as discussed at the Australasian Computer Science Week 2002 (ACSW2002), from February 28 to March 1, 2002. This event included the 25 th Australasian Computer Science Conference (ACSC) and the following four "satellite" conferences, all held at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Melbourne, Victoria: (1) The 7 th Asia-Pacific Computer Systems Architecture Conference (ACSAC), (2) Computing: the Australasian Theory Symposium (CATS), (3) The 3 rd Australasian User Interface Conference (AUIC), and (4) The 13 th Australasian Database Conference (ADC). The present report synthesizes the major themes of the five conferences, along with current trends and developments.

ATIP03.007: Energy R&D Programs in Australia

ABSTRACT: This report provides an overview of energy R&D in Australia and describes basic research programs such as hydrogen generation and solar cells, as well as two new power generation schemes: "hot dry rocks" and "solar tower" technologies. The report also discusses Australian government's energy policy and research at government research laboratory Energy Technology Division of the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO).

ATIP03.008: AsiaCrypt 2002

ABSTRACT: AsiaCrypt 2002, which was held in Queenstown, New Zealand, from December 1 to 5, 2002, and organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), brought leading mathematicians and cryptographers to the region to debate issues related to global cryptology. Although it is a relatively new conference, with major input dominated by U.S. and European contributors, local interest was high, and the conference is likely to serve as a hub for local development of cryptology and related fields within the region. The present report summarizes the conference and highlights some key presentations.
