2012 Workshop on Frontiers of Information Science and Technology plus the 2nd International Tutorial Series of Scientific Advances in ShanghaiTech University

Date: December 9-13, 2012

Location: Shanghai Executive Leadership Academy, Shanghai, China

Workshop Objectives
The newly inaugurated Shanghai Tech and its School of Information Science and Technology will host a workshop to explore the future frontiers of information science and technology. The objectives are
 • To present fresh perspectives on the future of information science and technology (IST);
 • To define future IST research directions in general, and for Shanghai Tech in particular;
 • To promote a unique collaborative opportunity at Shanghai Tech on IST research.
The organizers and Shanghai Tech wish to invite world-class experts and future stars in key areas of information science and technology to congregate in Shanghai for a four-day workshop. In hosting this international workshop, Shanghai Tech seeks to gather a broad perspective on the future development and critical areas for research and education in information science and technology.
