SOI Asia 2008 Spring Global E-Workshop 
March 31 - April 4, 2008


In year 2001, SOI-Asia project was launched aiming to contribute to higher education in Asian region by utilizing satellite based Internet infrastructure. The project has 27 partner universities and research institutes in 13 Asian countries, and developed Internet environment at each partner site to share the live/archived lectures from Japan and partners. For autonomous operation of the project, each operator should be capable of maintaining the SOI-Asia environment in each partner site. In order to train the operators, the project organized five SOI-Asia Operator's Workshops and 1 special workshop for TU in the past. In year 2006, SOI Asia partner universities, for the first time, had jointly organized a "global-e-workshop" which utilizes the distance education environment and employs the virtualization technology to create an Asia-wide virtual hands-on workshop environment at 17 partner universities in 10 countries, training 42 engineers from 19 partner universities. SOI Asia Global-E-Workshop 2008 will continue the !Hglobal-e-workshop!I model and in addition, promote collaboration on skill and knowledge sharing by inviting senior SOI Asia operators from member universities to conduct lecture and instruct the hands-on practice to the new SOI Asia operators.
