DIAS: Data Integration and Analysis System Health Economy Install applications Project Domain Scientists Urban Data Archive Project Collaborations Biodiversity Agriculture Applications Weather Climate Project IT Scientists Disaster Water Install applications Data Integration & Analysis Data Download 25 PB Storage Data Infrastructure Server & Clusters SINET Data Cross-disciplinary collaboration platform for solution of various social problems
Why Cross-disciplinary collaboration? • Global Warming: Prediction→Mitigation→Adaptation • “the heaviest rain ever”・・・Destabilization of weather has become sensible? • Past experiences are not enough to prevent disasters; Society needs observations and simulations, but they have limitations. • “Sustainable Society” and “Resilient Society” ・ “Inter-disciplinary” and “Trans-disciplinary” Inter-disciplinary Collaboration (Domain scientists, Data providers, IT scientists……) Trans-disciplinary Collaboration （Government, Non-profits, Private Companies, Communities）

Difficulty in Cross-disciplinary Collaboration Difficulties Information disseminate E-mail Data sharing ubi. DIAS functions Difficulty on getting Information from other projects or communities. Common communication and data sharing platform by DIAS common account. Research Achievements of researchers of various fields Connecting research achievements of JST Researchmap Cumbersome maintain of E-mail address, Mailing-lists. Easy management of Group Members (Open. PNE) Uncertainly of Mail transmission, Cumbersome ordering E-mails. Ordering posts in each group topics Digest mail for new topics or events Limitation of attached file size. 512 KB file can be uploaded Cumbersome using file forwarding service. Time consuming work with collaborators, Concern for Google Drive Remote concurrent edition for text only (Ether. Pad-Lite ) Cumbersome ordering shared information. Easy manual by ordering topics at group top Meeting Edition Difficulty of scheduling many busy members. Single sign-on from Group board , Scheduler to Web meeting. There are organizations which prohibits TV meeting system or Skype. Open source web meeting system equivalent of Web. Ex (Open. Meetings) Cumbersome comment collection by mail attached files. Concern for Google Drive Remote concurrent edition which manage editors and edit history for text only (Ether. Pad-Lite ) on domestic server.
What is advantage? • Open source code testbed • Domestic server • Social issue oriented What is lacking? • Small size of DIAS common accounts now. • Researcher’s information is not enough. JST Researchmap registrants are still very small number. • Lack of Incentive for achievement dissemination for public by ubi. DIAS due to close system. Linkage with open system is required. • Inter-Group or Group-person meeting function. • ……….
