Location: Parkyard Hotel, Shanghai, China 



Workshop Objectives


      The newly inaugurated ShanghaiTech 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

      1. To present fresh perspectives on the future of information science and technology (IST);

      2. To define future IST research directions in general, and for ShanghaiTech in particular;

      3. To promote a unique collaborative opportunity at ShanghaiTech on IST research.

      The organizers and ShanghaiTech 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, ShanghaiTech seeks to gather a broad perspective on the future development and critical areas for research and education in information science and technology.
