25th Pacific Conference of the RSAI : Workshop Forum C Agenda


The Pacific Regional Science Conference Organisation (PRSCO) 2017 / Regional Science Association International (RSAI)

Workshop Forum C

Topic: Collaborative Methods and Systems for Spatiotemporal Information Processing


Room : Urban Planning 50108

Chair : Shiann-Far Kung


Context (Draft):


As to foster collaboration among a diverse knowledge domains of researchers, four collaborative projects to advance the groundwork and approaches for regional science using spatialtemporal data are designed to address shared challenges, strategies, and data reuse. In response to the need for this collaborative science, collaborative methods and systems are proposed to enable researchers to share, link and communicate data, and therefore to promote exchange and collaboration across disciplines. This forum aims to discuss the analytic, technological, and data managing challenges based on practical experiences of three regional science projects, as well as systems and tools served for curating research data and managing content which are supported from one information science project.


The four collaborative projects are funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan (MOST105-2627-M-001-014).
