|Carnegie Mellon to Showcase Security Research in Taiwan
Carnegie Mellon University researchers and members of Taiwan's
government-affiliated Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) will unveil new security technology in Hsinchu.
"The new research we plan to show at the upcoming symposium is designed to
contribute significantly to technology developments in both Asia and the United
States," said Tsuhan Chen, a Carnegie Mellon professor in electrical and
computer engineering and co-director of the ITRI lab at Carnegie Mellon along
with co-director Shiaw-Shian Yu, based at ITRI in Taiwan. <link>

Signs Partnership with Taiwan's ITRI
Directors from Taiwan's government-affiliated
Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and
Mellon University signed an agreement to develop
joint technical research, starting with the creation
of an ITRI lab at the university, according to Taiwan
News and Taiwan's Central News Agency.
The lab will include an exchange of research and
development (R&D) staff, encompassing projects
in optoelectronics, telecommunications, systems-on-a-chip
(SOC), and microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS),
with joint publications, scientific meetings, and
ITRI President Johnsee Lee and College of Engineering
Dean Pradeep Khosla signed the five year accord in
Taipei. Lee said the partnership will help realize
ITRI's vision of becoming a leader in advanced technology
This partnership will surely bring long-term benefits
to both CMU and ITRI. It can promote Taiwan to the
next level: from manufacturing to a world leader
in intellectual properties," said Khosla.

Chen Greets Carnegie Mellon President Jared
Cohon and Praised the "ITRI Lab@CMU"
Chen Shui-bian greeted Carnegie Mellon President
Jared Cohon and other delegates, including Provost
Mark Kamlet, ECE Department Head
Pradeep Khosla, and Professor Tsuhan Chen, Director
of the "ITRI Lab@CMU," at the Presidential
Office in Taipei.
Chen said, CMU is an excellent university not only
in USA, but also in the world. It is the leading
university in the field of computer engineering.
Chen believes that this visit will increase exchanges
and cooperation opportunities with Taiwan's academic
and industrial institutions.
Chen said he was pleased to know that the CMU has
established collaboration with National Chiao Tung
University (NCTU), and that the Industrial Technology
Research Institute (ITRI) has set up a research center
on the CMU campus, conducting research on system
on chip, multimedia, and security technologies. These
research areas are very important for Taiwan.
Cohon agrees with Taiwan's effort on investing in
education and research, and he expressed hope that
CMU will further increase academic exchanges with
Taiwan's academic, industrial and government sectors.
He believes this will become a good basis for future
interaction. [November 2003]
|" ITRI Lab@CMU Established"
Carnegie Mellon has sealed an agreement with Taiwanese
officials establishing new research and educational
outreach programs with the Industrial Technology
Research Institute (ITRI).
Signing the agreement, marks the beginning of a long-term
relationship," said Carnegie Mellon Provost
Mark Kamlet. "We will work jointly with ITRI
to identify future key technical areas of research."
Research at the government-sponsored ITRI lab will
focus on circuit design and applications in communication,
information technology, computer and consumer electronics,
"The lab is an important part of our strategy
to integrate research in various centers, and it
will be funded at about $1 million a year," said
Pradeep Khosla, head of Carnegie Mellon's Electrical
Engineering Department. The information technology
industry accounts for 10 percent of the U.S. economy
and nearly 60 percent of business capital spending.
"The new research lab also is designed to contribute
significantly to technology developments in Taiwan
and Asia," said Tsuhan Chen, a Carnegie Mellon
professor and co-director of the ITRI Lab along with
Shiaw-Shian Yu at ITRI in Taiwan. [January 2003]
