(From NSF) The 1st US-Japan Workshop on Collaborative Global Research on Applying Information Technology

June 5-6, 2017, Atlanta, GA, USA (co-located with IEEE ICDCS’17)

Dear Researchers,

You are cordially invited to submit papers or whitepapers for consideration to participate in the US-Japan Workshop on Collaborative Global Research on Applying Information Technology. This workshop will bring together researchers from around the world to discuss experiences, challenges, and opportunities in transnational and international collaborative research on information technology (IT) and IT-supported applications, with focus on active collaborations between the United States (U.S.) and Japan. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to interact directly and promote collaborative research activities. The collaboration is expected to achieve scientific knowledge that would be difficult to obtain individually.

Workshop attendance will be by invitation only, following response to this call as outlined in the Call for Papers []. Prospective attendees are expected to be investigators on funded research projects, and should submit papers or whitepaper for consideration by the program committee. Workshop organizers are requesting funding from NSF and JST to support partially the travel costs and registration fees of invited attendees from the U.S. and Japan. Principal Investigators of projects in relevant NSF and JST programs are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, early career researchers and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.

Topics of interest for collaboration include, but are not limited to: Big Data Fundamental Technologies and Applications; Smart and Connected Communities (SCC); Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT); Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. For submission details, please refer to the CFP []. We apologize for the short deadlines, but hope that you will consider participating.

  • March 25, 2017 (Early Submission Deadline for refereed papers).
  • April 28, 2017 (Final Submission Deadline for whitepapers only).

Funding support in the form of travel expenses and partial workshop registration for invited participants may be available, contingent on the availability of funding from NSF and JST.
