Professor Jing Tsu (石靜遠), the esteemed John M. Schiff Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures and Comparative Literature at Yale University, will meet colleagues from NCCU College of Communication and College of Liberal Arts on July 3 2023, part of her research trip to Taiwan for her next book and other academic work. Born in Taipei and a new migrant to America at the age of nine, Harvard-trained Professor Tsu has proved herself a leading scholar in the fields of East Asian languages, literature, and comparative literature. Her most recent book, "Kingdom of Characters: The Language Revolution That Made China Modern," released in 2022, has garnered widespread acclaim from international media outlets, including esteemed publications like The New York Times and The Washington Post. Furthermore, it has been named a Finalist for the highly prestigious Pulitzer Prize in the category of original non-fiction works. On behalf of NCCU, Dean of the College of Communication at NCCU, Professor Yi-Ning Chen (陳憶寧), will be the host for Professor Tsu’s visit, joined by fellow NCCU colleague, Professor Shih-Chi Chin (金仕起), the Director of the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts at NCCU. Professor Tsu will have a closed-door roundtable meeting titled "The Impact of Emerging Technologies on the Humanities and Society: Focusing on Taiwan's Experience." “We’re honored to host internationally acclaimed book author and scholar, Professor Jing Tsu from Yale University, especially in the research aspect of new technologies and their impact on media and communications, which is our newly-launched 「XR Lab NCCU 」（XR中心實驗室）all about,” said Dean of College of Communication, Professor Yi-Ning Chen. “This is also part of NCCU’s goal to go global and be the meeting point for Asian and Western scholars altogether. I’m glad our College of Communication can help the university in this aspect too” Following the roundtable meeting, Professor Tsu will also pay a visit to the newly-launched 「XR Hub NCCU」, a research platform combining virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies. The XR Hub NCCU aims to explore the potential applications of these emerging technologies in fields such as education, culture, and society. Through this visit and hands-on experiences, Professor Tsu will gain deeper insights into Taiwan's research and development achievements in the intersection of education and emerging technologies. NCCU College of Communication Professor Jih-Hsuan Tammy Lin（林日璇）and Tsung-Jen Shih（施琮仁）will present their research work to Professor Tsu during the guided tour for XR Hub NCCU. During Professor Tsu’s visit to Taiwan, she will also meet senior officials, business leaders, and local XR creators to understand more and diverse perspectives about Taiwan’s economic and technological development as well as what makes Taiwan’s “soft power” in the new era of AI and the metaverse. NCCU visiting scholar George Chen (陳澍), who is also a Yale World Fellow, will accompany Professor Tsu for her Taiwan visit, including her visit to NCCU College of Communication and College of Liberal Arts.
On Saturday, June 10, 2023, the College of Communication at National Chengchi University (NCCU) organized a special movie event at Vie Show Taipei Hsin Yi for its faculty members, students, and staff. The highly anticipated film, "Workers (做工的人)," provided a unique opportunity to come together and enjoy an afternoon of cinematic storytelling. Directed by Fen-Fen Cheng (鄭芬芬), an alumnus of NCCU's Department of Radio & Television, "Workers" held special significance for the college. Many of you might be familiar with her previous work, as Cheng adapted the book "Worker," written by Li-Ching Lin (林立青), into a successful TV drama in 2020 and won the Golden Bell Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film and for Best Directing for a Miniseries or Television Film. The TV drama received accolades not only because of its captivating storytelling, but also due to the outstanding casting, which can be proved by the fact that the leading actor won the Golden Bell Award for Best Directing for a Miniseries or Television Film while the supporting actor was honored by winning the Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film for the 56th Golden Bell Awards. In this movie, Workers, as a successor of the TV drama, Fen-Fen Cheng takes us back in time, allowing us to delve into the lives of the characters portrayed in the drama, revealing how their relationships evolved and shaped them into who they are today. The film skillfully captured the complexities of the characters' lives and the challenges they faced, creating a connection with the audience on an emotional level. COMM NCCU would like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to Yae-Wei Wang (王亞維), Associate Professor of the College of Communication, NCCU, for bringing this special movie screening to fruition. We look forward to organizing more such events to continue celebrating our talented alumni's achievements and embracing the power of storytelling.

College of Communication at National Chengchi University (NCCU) and Meta have announced their collaboration with the launch of XR Hub NCCU (傳播學院XR中心實驗室) on May 12th, 2023. The hub is Meta’s first XR-related collaboration project with a university in Taiwan, which is of landmark significance for industry-academia cooperation. With the donation of Meta, XR Hub NCCU will be equipped with 20 Meta Quest 2 VR headsets to provide a full range of immersive experiences, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR). The hub’s launch aims to provide a sophisticated infrastructure for XR technology-related research and course development in the College of Communication at NCCU. The College of Communication also partners with Meta to establish research scholarships to promote relevant studies in the metaverse, artificial intelligence, and social media. As a result, the College of Communication has become the only institution in Taiwan to offer scholarships sponsored by Meta. The scholarship encompasses two specific categories: degree scholarship and research scholarship. The degree scholarship grants NT$200,000 each to two master’s degree students annually. On the other hand, the research scholarship aims to incentivize master’s and doctoral students to publish their research in major international conferences and prominent journals to enhance their work’s visibility and academic impact. Patrick Pan (潘先國), Head of Taiwan and Hong Kong at Meta and a distinguished alumnus of NCCU, said that Meta had continued cultivating XR talents in Taiwan since it established the first Metaverse XR Hub. Pan said, “We have since established the Immersive Learning Academy and organized an AR Hackathon, which would allow creators to interact with each other and spark creativity. Today, the collaboration between Meta and NCCU hopes to take root in XR talent education on campus, which aims to help students develop XR-related research, reserve innovative energy, and energize the industry.” For the unveiling ceremony of the newly established XR Hub NCCU, guests from Meta, including Simon Milner, the Vice President of Public Policy for APAC, Beth Ann Lim, Director of Policy Programs and Campaigns APAC, Patrick Pan, and Max Chen, Head of Public Policy Taiwan, were all present to express their support for this landmark industry-academia collaboration. During the opening ceremony, Tsung-Jen Shih (施琮仁), the Director of the Media Research & Development Center at the College of Communication, warmly welcomed the guests. He took the opportunity to introduce the lab’s cutting-edge equipment and impressive features. Additionally, Shih expressed sincere gratitude to Meta and the Institute of Information Industry (資策會) for their support. “I firmly believe this facility will serve as a fertile ground for nurturing future generations of VR experts, innovators, and researchers,” he said. He also extended his appreciation to Professor Ya-Lun Tao, who was in charge of the interior design of the lab, creating an aesthetically pleasing environment. Furthermore, as part of the collaboration, the College of Communication and Meta will join forces to offer courses on emerging interactive technologies and digital content communication. Leveraging Meta’s expertise, these courses will feature both in-house lecturers and field experts. They will cover diverse topics related to the latest interactive technology trends, applications, regulations, and design. Their primary objective is to equip students with a deep understanding of cutting-edge technologies and their practical applications. Additionally, these courses aim to foster the development of future educators and researchers in interactive technology, nurturing individuals who can effectively promote and advance innovative communication technologies. “I am happy to see the direction that we are taking for the College of Communication, the program we have here, and all the exciting research we are doing,” said Tsai-Yen Lee (李蔡彥), the President of NCCU. With more than 20 years of experience in VR and AI research, President Lee expressed his support for the College of Communication, the program, and the newly established cooperation project. The collaboration between the College of Communication at NCCU and Meta has injected new vitality and momentum into Taiwan’s interactive technology education, research, and innovation. It will also help promote the development of Taiwan’s XR industry and make Taiwan one of the major players in the XR field in Asia and globally.
We are excited to announce the official inauguration of the "NCCU x Meta XR Hub.” This collaboration between the College and Meta signifies a significant milestone, as it positions the College of Communication as the first university partner of Meta in Taiwan. The "NCCU x Meta XR Hub” is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with 20 Meta Quest 2 VR headsets, offering a diverse range of immersive experiences that span augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality. With its cutting-edge resources, this lab will serve as a fertile ground for XR technology-related research and curriculum development within the College of Communication and NCCU. Through the "NCCU x Meta XR Hub," students and faculty alike will have access to unparalleled opportunities to explore and harness the potential of XR technology. The lab will act as a dynamic nexus for interdisciplinary collaboration, enabling the College of Communication to remain at the forefront of innovation in the field. We are excited to share this news with everyone and sincerely invite you to visit the " NCCU x Meta XR Hub.” At the lab, you will have the opportunity to experience firsthand the transformative power of XR technology. Join us at the "NCCU x Meta XR Hub" and be part of this exciting journey as we push the boundaries of what is possible with XR technology.

On October 29th, 2022, IMICS students and faculty members attended the annual international symposium co-organized by National Chengchi University (NCCU), Seoul National University (SNU), and The University of Tokyo (UT) with the theme Beyond Boundaries: Communication for Diverse and Multiple Communities. Gather Town, a cutting-edge platform that demonstrates how people can truly break through boundaries and come together, was used to host the event online. Having Dr. Tammy JihHsuan Lin and Dr. Tsung Jen Shih, two of our prestigious professors, attended the meeting was an honor. Dr. Tammy JihHsuan Lin gave the opening statement, together with Prof. Joonhwan Lee from SNU and Prof. Shunya Yoshimi from UT, while Dr. Tsung Jen Shih represented the Communication College of NCCU as one of the session chairs. Numerous subjects were discussed, including critical communication and cultural studies, computational methods, media, technology, and society, as well as intercultural and international communication. The participants were able to gain a deeper understanding of the research in the aforementioned domains thanks to the 18 presentations and 12 posters given in total. 6 presentations and 4 posters, provided by our outstanding NCCU students, made up one-third of the total. The symposium went off without a hitch, and everyone was having a good time. The interaction between the attendees, presenters, and chairpeople was excellent. It amply demonstrated how the symposium's spirit was kept and let everyone benefit from the incredible opportunity to engage with people with diverse backgrounds. The symposium offers a terrific opportunity for us to communicate our research interests and efforts from an Asian viewpoint. “The experience of sharing our research and plans from an inter-Asia and international perspective with students from other schools representing the communication field of each country in North East Asia was very valuable. In particular, as a Korean studying in Taiwan, it was a very interesting and special experience to share academic interests with students in my home country.” Yulgong Lee, a second-year IMICS student, commented. We are beyond elated to have established a strong bond with Seoul National University (SNU), and The University of Tokyo (UT). We hope to have more opportunities for academic collaboration in the future and keep learning and growing together.
