Computational science application programs often model real-world changing conditions, such as weather, air flow around a plane, automobile body distortions in a crash, the motion of stars in a galaxy, an explosive device, etc. Computational science is now commonly considered a third mode of science, complementing and adding to experimentation/observation and theory. The essence of computational science is numerical algorithm and/or computational mathematics. High-Performance Computer (HPC) is a tool of computational science and its architectures are changing rapidly. Under these situations, computational scientists have to collaborate with computational mathematicians and computer scientists to use proper numerical algorithms and to optimize the programs. In this session, we focus on the future of HPC plat- form and numerical algorithms for the specific areas.

Session 7: Global Energy Environment and Nuclear Energy

Myung-Ja Kim (Korea Federation of Women Science and Technology Associations, Korea;

Time and Room: Saturday, 28 July 08:30-10:00 (Room 2)
Since its establishment in 2003, the Korean Federation of Women’s Science & Technology Associations (KOFWST) has been proactive in promoting the welfare, rights and interests of women in science and technology in numerous ways. Diverse programs such as annual conferences and ‘Women Leaders Forum’ held by KOFWST have facilitated networking and interaction among women scientists and engineers to become more visible among their academic peers.

Our theme in 2012 is envisioned in the slogan of “Convergence, Communication, and Scientific Diplomacy”, which expands our scope to serve the public in solving social disputes and conflicts related to science, technology and society. In recent years, many societal concerns today have been complicated by scientific, technological, environmental, ethical, cultural and social dimension. We believe that resolution of these issues requires the commitment of people with diverse backgrounds, as well as proper social support through conflict mediation and consensus building.

The KOFWST plans to implement a mechanism to integrate the competencies of prominent women in various specialties, to facilitate their ability to communicate with stakeholders, lay persons, and experts in various fields, and assist them in mediating disputes and/or proposing reasonable and efficient solutions. We are of the view that the KOFWST is well-positioned to mediate such conflicts in that it includes distinguished members in diverse fields, from physics to consumer science, and our ‘Women Leaders Forum’ gives the stakeholders and general public a chance to communicate with people in other fields.

In 2012, the Women Leaders Forum will be expanded to provide valuable opportunities to promote science diplomacy by supporting joint conferences with groups in the EU, Canada and USA. In this vein, The KOFWST will host the Women Scientists and Engineers Forum on the theme of ‘Science Communication: Global Energy Environment and Nuclear Energy’ at 2012 EKC. We sincerely hope that the forum can contribute to understanding and cooperation in addressing the challenges ahead of us in the controversial issue of nuclear energy.
