keynote speaker, Dr. Alexander Szalay, is the Alumni Centennial Professor of
Astronomy and Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Johns
Hopkins University.  He is also the Director of the Institute for Data
Intensive Science.  His outstanding achievement has earned him many awards,
including an Alexander Von Humboldt Award in Physical Sciences and the
Microsoft Jim Gray Award.  Dr. Szalay’s speech title is “From Genes to
Stars: the Fourth Paradigm of Science”.   The second speaker is Dr. Frank
Hsu, the Clavius Distinguished Professor of Computer and Information Science
Department from Fordham University.  Dr. Hsu will talk about “Analytics and
Fusion of Big Data: Opportunities and Challenges in Science and
Technology”.  The third speaker is Dr.  Kuan-Tsae Huang, the CEO of

“Pancreatic Cancer - from A Patient's Perspective”, led by TASTA President
Dr. Bill Wu.
 
The rapid growth of computer and information technology brings new
opportunities to integrate huge amount of data, which also provide a chance
for both experts and general public to explore information in many new ways
that they couldn’t have done.  On the other hands, although there have been
many breakthroughs in cancer research in the past many years, the process of
cancer treatment still post tremendous challenges to the patients and their
families.  The 2013 TASTA Annual Conference is free for attendance, and we
urged you not to miss this great opportunity to join this discussion with
our outstanding speakers.  To register, please sign up on-line at
