  • This paper focuses on how an integrated or systemic approach is needed to both investigate and connect different kinds of interdisciplinary inquiry and knowledge within and beyond universities to encourage more productive collaboration with the other three ‘macro stakeholders’ - government, business, and the wider community. In this way universities can and should provide a greater leadership role in sustainability, innovation and policy studies. Such a framework is needed to also help to change the view of many that academics should just play a supporting role of providing specialised technical expertise only to the other macro stakeholders. The interdisciplinary and collaborative framework developed here is applied to the on-going water crisis in Malaysia - an exemplary complex problem-solving basis for seeking sustainable policy solutions to diverse challenges. As further discussed, this was applied also in practice to a multi-stakeholder seminar on addressing the difficult policy challenges of the Malaysian water industry and sector.

  • Radial and tangential water diffusion in Eucalyptus globulus wood was investigated using three mature trees from a forest in Khemis Sahel (North Morocco). Absorption and desorption kinetics experiments were conducted at ambient temperature ($25^{\circ}C$) and $30^{\circ}C$, respectively, and a relative humidity of 60%. The diffusion coefficients in the two directions were determined under imposed hygrothermal conditions; they were greater in the radial direction for the absorption as well as desorption processes. Convective drying under load, preceded by reconditioning and followed up by balancing, revealed the drying conditions that corresponded to the appropriate drying schedules for E. globulus wood. This was verified by measuring the cracks and bowsbefore and after drying of boards.

  • In this paper, we propose the multi-axial classification system using parallel coding method that is systemic and flexible properties for representing dental clinical behavior. The methodology and organization of this thesis as follows. First, an analysis of other classification systems. Second, the domain of medical behavior and axises using selected elements was were determined. Third, the new code system is constructed of these common factors in properties of prediction of hierarchy, brevity, simplicity, flexibility and mnemonic usage. Finally, the framework of classification system for dental was made using multi-axial code system. The result of the this study, the eight bases axis of multi-axial code system is composed and can be basic information of research for construction of classification system of all medical domain.

  • Background and Purpose: The Han(cold)-Yol(heat) patternization is one of the most usually used diagnostic methods in oriental medicine. This is studies for compensating questionnaries for Han-Yol that were made by Sook-Kyeng Kim. Methods: Questionnaries for Yol should be useful for clinical examination. So symptoms being chosen for questionnaries are based on Donguibogam that is clifnical textbook and 46 items are developed. By delphi panel and statistical analysis Items of questionnaries are choosen. Resultset: By delphi panel and statistical analysis 8 Items of questionnaries are choosen. Conclusion: Further research is necessary for improvement reliabilities and validities of the questionnaires for Yol pattemization.

  • As the boundaries between disciplines have been weakened and interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary subjects have increased, there is a limitation to express subjects with DDC. This study evaluates DDC instructions using interdisciplinary numbers and classifying more than one discipline through Delphi research. As a result, it is found that there is a need for defining separately 'interdisciplinary subjects' and 'multidisciplinary subjects', based on the level of integration among disciplines, and improving the instruction to maintain the consistency in assigning and filing classification numbers. It is also discussed that to enhance the symbols' power of expression, an analytic/synthetic method could be adopted.

  • Data Technology (DT) is a new technology which deals with data collection, data analysis, information generation from data, knowledge generation from modelling and future prediction. DT is a newly emerged interdisciplinary science & technology in this 21st century knowledge society. Even though the main body of DT is applied statistics, it also contains management information system (MIS), quality management, process system analysis and so on. Therefore, it is an interdisciplinary science and technology of statistics, management science, industrial engineering, computer science and social science. In this paper, first of all, the definition of DT is given, and then the effects and the basic properties of DT, the differences between IT and DT, the 6 step process for DT application, and a DT example are provided. Finally, the relationship among DT, e-Statistics and Data Mining is explained, and the direction of DT development is proposed.
