ATIP03.027: Korea Top 50

ABSTRACT: The present report is an overview of the top 50 high performance computers (HPC) installed in Korea as of December 2002. It also provides various statistical data derived from that Top 50 list. The results are compared with the well-known Top 500 (November 2002 report) and last year's Korea Top 50 to survey the status of domestic supercomputers in detail.

ATIP03.029: S&T in Bangalore

ABSTRACT: Bangalore, India, is quickly transforming itself into one of the world's major technology hubs. Bangalore has acquired all the necessary ingredients to gain such status: good educational institutions, critical mass of innovative companies, an entrepreneurial culture, and the presence of venture capital. The IT and biotechnology downturns have affected the city's companies, but it is likely to only be a temporary setback. The present report traces the development of Bangalore as a global technology hub and analyzes its major strengths and weaknesses.

ATIP03.030: HPC-Asia 2002

ABSTRACT: This short report summarizes HPC-Asia 2002 (High Performance Computing Asia), held in December 2002 in Bangalore, India.

Date: 15 May 2003
ATIP03.031: Australasian Computer Science Week 2003

ABSTRACT: The Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW), now in its 26th edition, is a yearly set of conferences designed to bring together researchers in the general field of computer science and related disciplines. This year, the conference was held in Adelaide and jointly hosted by the South Australian Consortium on Information Technology and Telecommunications, Flinders University, the University of Adelaide, and the University of South Australia. The present report summarizes the main themes addressed at the seven conferences, along with current trends and developments.

ATIP03.032: Bio Budgets in Japan

ABSTRACT: Japan's Council for Science and Technology Policy has designated life sciences as a major funding priority for the next few years. This report analyzes overall life science spending by major funding agencies within the 2003 government budget and provides details on major new initiatives in the life sciences and biotechnology field set to begin next year in Japan.

Date: 23 May 2003
ATIP03.033: Quantum Information Science Overview in Asia

ABSTRACT: Quantum information science (QIS) research in Asia, especially in Japan, is extremely active and competitive with respect to efforts in this field worldwide. The Japanese government has invested substantially in this particular research through funding agencies such as the Japan Science and Technology Corporation, which has resulted in many significant achievements. In the present report, Japanese programs are summarized in detail. Australia's impressive national program in QIS is also reviewed as well as national efforts in this field in China, Taiwan, and Korea.

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.
