To foster international partnership with Kyoto University in Japan, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan, hosted a seminar on Informatics, March 17th-19th. More than 90 scholars and students from the two universities gathered together to share their research.

22 experts from Taiwan and Japan talked about their research and the 11-member delegation from Kyoto University were invited to give talks in the seminar as well.

Dr. Huey-Jen Jenny Su, Executive Vice President of NCKU, offered greetings to the guests and gave remarks on behalf of NCKU President Hwung-Hweng Hwung. She said, “As the benchmarking of the university for NCKU, Kyoto University and all the delegates from your institution have a very special position in our mind.”

“This seminar is likely to be a mutually productive and beneficial event. We hope to facilitate more works in the future and are looking forward to the memorandum to be signed,” Dr. Su noted.

Dr. Yon-Hua Tzeng, Dean of the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, NCKU, introduced the college and said, “We have almost 3,000 students and two third of them are graduate students.”

“In the high-tech industry in Taiwan, the entry level of new employee is master degree. We have nearly 2000 graduate students to show that the research capacity of the college is strong,” Tzeng added.

“We also have a very good relationship with industry in Taiwan,” according to Dr. Tzeng. He added that in the coming months, NCKU and Kyoto University will have a very close collaboration.

Kyoto University would like to recruit students from NCKU. Tzeng responded, “this seminar has its mission to encourage our students to join Kyoto University to learn the best knowledge and way of doing research.”

“The first thing we can do here is to set the milestone of student exchange agreement between these two colleges and then we can both send students for mutual understanding,” according to Dr. Tzeng.

Dr. Toshiyuki Tanaka, the Associate Dean of the Graduate School of Informatics at Kyoto University said that this is his first time to Taiwan and he gave a brief introduction of Kyoto University and Graduate School of Informatics.
