A team composed of scientists from each Japan and the USA will meet May 23-24, 2013 in Washington, D.C. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to provide a consensus report that identifies and prioritizes key strategic areas where Research on Big Data and Disaster Research offers the greatest opportunity to advance novel scientific knowledge, and to foster greater collaborative interactions between Japan and US scientists in these priority research areas. This report will be considered by NSF and JST in developing future and joint Research Funding Announcements. The workshop will emphasize basic science and fundamental discovery as well as innovations for resilient and sustainable society.

Attendance to this workshop is by invitation only and space is limited. If you are interested in attending and have not been invited, please contact Prof. Calton Pu at for further information.
