The 6th Taipei International Digital Earth Symposium

31.03.2008
Taipei, Taiwan - Through this conference, we hope to find ways to help to restore the balance now missing in our relationship to the Earth.

I Conference Information

Al Gore, the Nobel Peace Prize winner of 2007, pointed out 15 years ago that global warming is a real problem, that the Earth is in the balance and the time to act is now. To restore the balance now missing in our relationship to the Earth is essential, and the choice is ours.

Our challenge is to accelerate the necessary change in thinking about our relationship with the environment in order to shift the pattern of our civilization to a new equilibrium. In striking the balance, what are the strategic goals necessary to save the global environment? How can we establish the social and political conditions most conducive to the emergence of sustainable societies? The aim of the 6th Taipei International Digital Earth Symposium (TIDES 2008) on May 15th to 16th 2008 is to help in the search for this balance.

The Academia Sinica, the Ministry of the Interior (MOI), National Applied Research Laboratories (NARL) and Chinese Culture University (CCU), have hosted the conference each year in Taipei, Taiwan since 2003. Continuing our study of Digital Earth applications in the field of environmental sustainability and social sciences, the main theme of the 6th Taipei International Digital Earth Symposium is Earth in the Balance - The Challenges in Scientific Mapping, Modeling and Monitoring of the Earth's Systems. Topics of the conference include national land and marine conservation, natural resources development, environmental protection, disaster control & prevention, and humanities & social science applications. Through this conference, we hope to find ways to help to restore the balance now missing in our relationship to the Earth and the Digital Earth concept and technology can be applied to achieve sustainability in all sectors of society and the environment and thus better human life on this planet.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
