Title: Collaborative Research and Education based on Scholar-Oriented Social Network (SCHOLAT)


Yong Tang got his BS and MSc degrees from Wuhan University in 1985 and 1990, respectively, and PhD degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2001, all in computer science. Dr. Tang is now a Professor and Dean of the School of Computer Science at South China Normal University (SCNU). He serves also as the Director of Services Computing Engineering Research Center of Guangdong Province. His current interests include Temporal Database and Knowledge Engineering, Collaborative Computing, Social Network Design and Big data applications.


SCHOLAT is a social network designed by our team, which is to meet the demands of most teachers, researchers and students for their collaboration in education and research. In this talk, I would like to introduce the main functions of SCHOLAT include: 1) management academic information. 2)create academic circle. 3) cooperative platform for researching and education, and 4) academic search engine. Last, I will focus our discussion on the information service and application design based on SCHOLAT.
