2. to share their reflections regarding modeling practice and
methodologies, and/or

3. to participate in informal conversational sessions (beside the usual sessions where they would present their accepted papers) with the objective of identifying a. synergic relationships among the different methodologies and ways of modeling in Science and Engineering; b. common grounds of modeling in different disciplines, or with different methods, so the identified commonalities would support inter-disciplinary communicational processes among modelers, in the different areas and through different methods, in Science and Engineering; c. similarities in different kinds of modeling which would support creative analogical thinking in this kind of thinking and practice.

===============
Suggested Types of Submissions:

• Articles related to specific models presented as case studies, where the model is presented with a reflection on modeling method followed and its potential applicability in other disciplines or areas.
• Articles related to modeling methods and methodologies.
• Articles related to Meta-Modeling: models of modeling processes, methods, and/or methodologies.
• Articles related to differences among different kinds of modeling, their respective pros and cons, and/or the ways of synergistically
combining or mixing them for specific purposes, as it is the case in some specific engineering problems.
• Articles related to syncretistic, eclectic, or integrative methodologies in hybrid modeling.

【徵稿】世新傳管─第七屆傳播管理發展與趨勢學術研討會

Posted on 2011/02/15. Filed under: 管理 | 標籤:, , , |

第七屆傳播管理發展與趨勢學術研討會

-媒體匯流與創新管理-

《徵稿啟事與投稿須知》

在新經濟時代來臨之際,傳媒產業普遍面臨以下的衝擊與挑戰:(1)資訊科技快速發展所帶動的媒體數位化、網路化、虛擬化、去中介化、知識化與創新化;(2)傳播產業變遷與媒體匯流趨勢所引發的產業組織模組化、企業併購、策略聯盟與跨媒體整合;(3)傳媒組織為提升競爭力所進行的流程再造與組織轉型;(4)傳媒產業全球化所衍生的全球運籌與無疆界競爭…等等。

面對上述的衝擊與挑戰,傳媒產業媒體管理者亟需思考如何能在兼顧「提升社會文化」與「繁榮產業經濟」之雙重責任下,來進行媒體的創新與變革,以掌握傳媒產業發展的新契機,開拓獨特的競爭優勢。世新大學傳播管理學系過去針對國內傳媒管理議題舉辦了四屆的「傳播管理發展與趨勢學術研討會」,以及第五、六屆針對海峽兩岸傳媒管理新匯流的學術研討會活動,是國內唯一以探討傳媒產業管理問題主軸的研討會,目前已累積了許多珍貴的研究成果。然而有鑑於隨著科技進展與環境變遷的日益快速,媒體的創新與變革將成為一種不斷持續改進的過程與需求,肩負兩岸傳媒管理人才培育責任的產、官、學之專家與學者也勢必要因應新經濟時代媒體產業變革的迫切需求,而對其教學、研究與服務內容,進行調整與提升。

「中華民國建國百年之財金政策變革與檢討學術研討會」 徵稿

Posted on 2011/01/26. Filed under: 管理, 財務, 資訊 | 標籤:, , |

一、緣起

民國建立以來的前四十年中,在內戰以及國際情勢交迫下,國家處境雖然極為不利,卻也有過黃金十年。其後的對日抗戰,雖然獲得最後勝利,卻在數年以後轉進臺灣。臺灣不大,卻在政府及人民三十餘年的努力之下,成為亞洲小龍之首。但曾幾何時,卻因政治紛擾,阻礙了前進的腳步。而閉關自守的對岸─中國大陸,反在臺灣衰退當中乘勢崛起,成為全球矚目的焦點。因此政府於近年來,檢討缺失亟思籌謀。種種謀思之中,金融無疑為重要環節。尤其在經歷了前年的金融海嘯後,政府與人民應有較以往不同的體認。而兩岸血濃於水,在各自發展中,應有其互相借鏡、互相提攜之處。因此,反省過去、汲取經驗、策勵未來,實為當前全國的重要議題。

二、宗旨

從財金觀點出發,提供一個學術交流平台,希望透過產官學界的參與,促進財經產業與學術的發展,並達到學術交流之目的。

三、主辦單位

國立國父紀念館、育達商業科技大學財務金融系

四、研討主題

(一)百年來金融制度之變革

(二)當前金融政策之檢討

(三)兩岸金融制度之探討

(四)與「銀行」、「保險」、「證券」、「期貨」之理論實務有關者。

五、舉辦時間

中華民國100年3月15日(星期二)

六、舉辦地點

育達商業科技大學

七、投稿規則
(一)中英文不拘

(二)稿件內容

1、姓名頁:包括作者姓名、服務單位、職稱、連絡電話、E-Mail。
2、摘要:包含論文名稱、關鍵詞,中英文各勿超過500字。

3、本文:請用標楷體12號字。以一萬字為原則,請勿超過一萬二千字。

(三)稿件寄交:請於民國100年2月14日17:00前以Email附加檔案方式寄至cch@ydu.edu.tw(當日18:00送審,請勿延誤)

八、審查及通知:全文審查結果,將於民國100年2月26日前以Email通知。

九、論文出版

本會議之論文集及光碟將申請國際標準書號(International Standard Book Number,ISBN)。

2 x PhD Studenship at Centre for Transport Studies, Imperial College London

Posted on 2011/01/23. Filed under: 綜合 | 標籤:, , |

Subject: 2 x PhD Studenship at Centre for Transport Studies, Imperial College London
To: ECONOMETRIC-RESEARCH

(with apologies for cross posting)

Imperial College London
Centre for Transport Studies

Two PhD studentships in Transport Strategies for Low-carbon Cities

Applications are invited for two PhD studentships with a focus on developing transport strategies for
low-carbon cities. The overall aim of the research is to develop new multi-sectoral decision support
tools for the planning, management and operation of existing cities, oriented at the emerging
adaptation challenges faced by planners, infrastructure operators and managers, service providers
and individual citizens.

The PhDs will be funded by the Grantham Institute for Climate Change. The studentships cover
home/EU student fees and bursary for three years and are open to UK and EU candidates, as well as
overseas candidates who would be able to pay the difference between home and overseas fees.

The Centre for Transport Studies is the focus for transport research at Imperial. It comprises a
vibrant community of over 80 academics, post doctoral researchers and doctoral students
undertaking research across a broad range of topics including transport demand modelling, transport
policy and regulation, transport operations, transport and the environment, transport safety,
intelligent transport systems, railway operations and management, air transport operations and
control, and maritime logistics. Further information can be found on the Centre’s website at
www.imperial.ac.uk/cts. The student will also be part of the diverse Grantham community and will be
expected to contribute to the wider activities of the Granthan community; further information about
the Grantham Institute can be found at www.imperial.ac.uk/climatechange. The research will also
involve collaboration with various UK and international partners, including Imperial´s partners in the
European Institute of Innovation and Technology´s Climate KIC initiative (www.climate-kic.org).

Applicants should hold or expect to obtain a first or upper second class honours degree or equivalent
in a relevant highly quantitative subject (e.g., engineering, mathematics, statistics, natural sciences,
economics) together with strong software and programming skills, ideally in a high level language
such as Java. Applicants should also have an interest in cities, planning and decision support
processes, and the analysis of interactions between human and technological systems. A Masters
degree in a relevant subject is desirable but not essential.

Background to the research

Cities face significant challenges in managing their transition to a low carbon future. These challenges
arises from two distinct but reinforcing pressures (a) the scale, uncertainty and complexity of the
potential direct impacts of climate change on cities, on their hinterlands and on the supply chains
upon which they depend and (b) the changes in society and city organisation and in associated
lifestyles that are likely to accompany the introduction of a wide range of new technological and
policy measures designed to mitigate the contribution of cities to the drivers of climate change.

PhD topic 1: A Participatory Platform for Developing Transition Strategies for Low Carbon Cities

The overall aim of this project is to develop a computational platform supporting novel multi-sectoral
systemic decision support tools for the planning, management and operation of existing cities,
oriented at the emerging adaptation challenges faced by planners, infrastructure operators and
managers, service providers and individual citizens,. The specific objectives include:

1. The integration of cross sectoral city process modelling (transport, energy, water, wastes
etc.), pervasive data collection technologies including dynamic sensor networks and interactive
simulation-based scenario visualisation, participatory evaluation and instant design feedback.

2. The development of appropriate protocols to allow these capabilities to be effectively
deployed in participatory strategy development processes.

3. The application of these capabilities in one or more practical contexts in the UK.

4. The critical evaluation of this experience and recommendations for future deployments.

This system will provide an essential component in the development of Imperial´s capability in the
analysis and modelling of urban systems.

The methodology would leverage a substantial body of work being undertaken in CTS on (a)
integrated urban systems modelling (b) the development and application of pervasive sensing
technologies and (c) advanced decision support techniques. The key deliverable will be the capability
to efficiently integrate pervasively sensed data into existing system modelling tools and use these
tools as a basis for the collaborative development of transition strategies.

PhD topic 2: Mobility and the Grid

The overall aim of this project is to encourage sustainable electric futures by developing the
capability to electric mobility markets and the emerging digital economy. The specific objectives are:

1. To identify opportunities and service models, inspired by the understanding of electric vehicle
mobility patterns, to support the market and enable environmentally friendly behaviours.

2. To design and develop a peer-to-peer aggregation system, that links regional electric vehicle
mobility patterns and the grid, as a basis for the service models.

3. To develop predictive models of electric vehicle use behaviour, the resulting mobility patterns
and consequent energy demand that can support the new service models.

4. This research will provide an essential component in the development of Imperial´s end-to-
end system modelling capability for electric vehicles, and will extend the capability to examine
collaborative mobility networks.

The core methodology would entail the specification and implementation of a random utility based
predictive model system, and the design and implementation of aggregation techniques to support
web-based services. CTS has a very strong background in the application of random utility based
model systems, which are widely used to model activity and mobility demand in many areas of
transport modelling and provide a coherent and flexible framework in which to develop novel
modelling approaches.
