关于龙星计划

  近几年我国经济得到了持续发展,我国已加入WTO。这意味着我国不仅在产业,而且在科学技术等方面要面临全球一体化的严峻挑战。在这激烈的竞争中,优秀人才是取得胜利的关键因素(在信息领域显得更为突出)。我们高兴的看到,海外一批中国留学生现已学有所成,在诸多信息科学前沿领域做出了重大贡献。"龙星计划"就是要组织一批在美国学术界已有成就、有一定地位的原中国留学生,不定期回国就某一领域,在中国各地大学,系统地讲授一门美国研究生课程(每门课程15-30课时)。同时,就所讲课程的学术领域、有关课题与国内科学家及研究生共同讨论研究。撰写综述文章,并将其在《计算机科学技术学报(英)》上发表。这对提高我国科研水平和培养优秀人才都将起重要作用。

(1)龙星计划委员会负责讲学和交流活动及具体学术领域的确定、主讲和主要交流人员和承办单位的选择以及把握学术方向等。委员会的秘书工作和日常服务。由设在中国科学院计算技术研究所的龙星计划办公室负责。

  龙星计划委员会每年征求授课教授和承办单位,公布下一年的学术交流领域(包括研究生课程、研究课题)。由各大学提出申请后由龙星计划委员会进行选择。确定后,报送基金委审批。

  龙星计划委员会每年评估学术交流活动情况,为下年活动安排作参考。
