  1. Glycoscience Workshop 2009
    The Glycoscience Workshop will focus on two major topics: "Infectious Disease Diagnosis" and "Synthesis and Drug Discovery" which will not only offer outstanding scientific programs but also strengthen the partnership between the two parties. NRC President Pierre Coulombe and Vice President Roman Szumski of Life Science will accompany ten scientists from NRC to participate in the workshop. Eleven researchers from Academia Sinica and universities in Taiwan, convened by President Chi-Huey Wong and Vice President Andrew H.-J. Wang, will join them to give a series of presentations on areas such as glycomics, studies on pathogen targets, development of novel therapeutic strategies and mass spectrometry technology. By bringing together these excellent researchers, we hope to promote scientific idea exchange and further collaboration on glycoscience.

  2. International Symposium CIB-W096 2009 Taiwan
    November 02-04, 2009
    Future Trends in Architectural Management

    Leading research into architectural management is the CIB’s working group W096 Architectural Management. CIB W096 was established in 1993 following the first conference dedicated to Architectural Management, held in the UK in 1992. Since this time the commission has been active in the area, with regular international conferences, meetings and published conference proceedings.

    The Architectural Management working group brings together researchers and practitioners concerned with the whole life cycle of building and construction projects. Recently the members of the working group have concentrated on achieving value for stakeholders and this work has led to a focus on integrated design teams and improved communications. Active working areas are; revaluing design, communicating design, inclusive design, design management, design integration, design management education and revaluing architectural practice—all with an underlying sustainable agenda.

    The commission members have recently produced a book Architectural Management: international research & practice (Eds. Emmitt, Prins, Otter, 2009, Wiley-Blackwell, Oxford), which provides a state of the art report into the rapidly evolving Architectural Management field.

    Timezone: Etc/GMT+8
    From http://www.fe.unair.ac.id/apmc14/

    Following a number of conferences held in USA, Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, and Australia, the Fourteenth Asia Pacific Management Conference (APMC), will be held by Department of Management, Faculty of Economics, Airlangga University, on 18, 19, and 20 November 2009. Research contributions addressing any aspects of Managing Complexities in the Asia Pacific Region are welcome.

    Among others, Asia Pacific region enjoys enormous economic growth and development. Recent reports also indicate that the region occupies bigger share in the global market. On the other hand, the region is known for highly diverse cultures, various political conditions, and asymmetric level of economic growths. These paradoxical facts – complexities - offer opportunities and managerial challenges for business players how to manage their businesses in this region. Therefore, the main question proposed here is how companies can manage the complexities of their businesses in the Asia Pacific region?

    The research seminar is a joint undertaking between the Department of Management, Faculty of Economics, Airlangga University (Indonesia) and National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan). The Conference is intended to bring together researchers engaged in Management, Economics and related fields from Asia Pacific, Europe, and other parts of the World. Ph.D. students are also strongly encouraged to submit proposals for papers.
