Welcome to SEAIP Smart City Forum 2019

International Joint-Research and Training Program in Cloud Computing and Internet of Things

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC), it is our great pleasure to welcome your participation in SEAIP Smart City Forum 2019!

Taiwan is also known as “Formosa” which means “Beautiful Island.” Included in Taiwan’s 19 major cities and counties are bustling metropolises like Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung. Also, Taiwan’s fifth largest city, Hsinchu, has one of the highest densities of hi-tech enterprises in the entire world! Natural wonders such as splendid ocean views and magnificent mountain scenery along the island are all not to be missed! This beautiful island, full of cultural, natural, and hi-tech wonders, promises a very special meeting experience in Asia!

SEAIP is well received in the ICT community in international regions. The workshop will focus on issues of science and technology in Artificial Intelligent, Big Data, Cloud Computing and Internet of Things. We encourage participants to present their research to strength the connections around the Pacific Rim and develop collaborations through the exchange of research results and ideas.

While you are here, we have arranged some social and cultural events, and hope you to feel at home and enjoy your time experiencing the cultures and beauty of Taiwan. As the great Confucius once said, “It is a great joy to welcome friends from afar!”

We look forward to having you at SEAIP Smart City Forum 2019!

About 2019 SCSE

The continuing growth of the IT industry in East and Southeast Asia has had an immense impact on not only the regional but the global economy as well. While IT is by nature collaborative, Taiwan has maintained a strong presence in high-performance computing and networking. Hence, the “Southeast Asia International Joint Research and Collaboration Program in High-performance Computing Applications and Networking Technology,” held by NCHC and the acronym of which is SEAIP, aims to promote the technological exchange among countries of the Asia and-Pacific region, and discuss the research collaboration that is visionary and has regional features in order to advance the technological development in Southeast Asia.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the most important emerging field, which applications and technology are what NCHC is being developing. As computer technologies are fully intertwined with people’s lives, AI has been applied to science, medical care, national defense, earth system science, etc. Thus, the core value and importance of AI along with the commercial possibilities cannot also be ignored. The main theme of this year’s SEAIP is, therefore, focusing on AI and its Innovation. Since NCHC holds a membership in PRAGMA and CENTRA, the researchers from our center annually attend the PRAGMA and CENTRA workshops which take place annually focusing on the big data applications of grid technologies. On March 26 to 28, 2019, NCHC, PRAGMA and CENTRA will organize the first AI related ICT workshop, 2019 SCSE - AI Technology Application & Innovation for Digital Cities Workshop – Expedition on the Network Science Landscape, and invite renowned scholars from Japan, Europe, the United States, and Southeast Asia. While discussing the analytics, data sharing and collecting related to AI and cyberinfrastructure, this workshop will help enhance the interactions between leading institutions in the US and those around East and Southeast Asia.
