In the afternoon, the seminar participants had a tour of the National Palace Museum. However, I did not join the tour because I had a meeting with the Academia Sinica GRID Computing Center (ASGC) from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
At the ASGC, I met the director, Dr. Simon LIN and his staff. We discussed our group's (Ateneo de Manila University Grid and High Performance Computing Group) participation in the project, EU-Asia Grid.
After my visit to the ASGC, I met with my ONCO-MEDIA colleagues and we had a dinner at a restaurant in the National Park.
Later, Allan Espinosa accompanied me to the Shilin Night Market near the Jiantan MRT Station.
