Knowledge Technologies 2001 Conference
[October 03, 2000] Knowledge Technologies 2001 Conference. Marion L. Elledge (Senior VP/IT, Graphic Communications Association) recently posted an initial announcement for a GCA-sponsored 'Knowledge Technologies 2001 Conference.' "Knowledge Technologies 2001 will replace XTech in Austin, Texas, March 4-7, 2001. Throughout the GCA events in 2000, there has been growing interest in technologies that support knowledge management. In Europe there were 250-300 attendees in the sessions on topic maps. At Extreme there was tremendous interest in RDF and Topic Maps. Ontologies and semantics have also proven to be major topics thus far. Based on the papers received for XML 2000, one full track is devoted to Knowledge Technologies. Therefore, we at GCA, agree that the next revolution for the Web will be the shift from an information base to a knowledge base. And the revolution will be grounded by emerging knowledge technologies to make the semantic web a reality. To achieve the goal of a quality conference to address these issues, the conference will be structured based on the input of the papers received and on the insight of the Conference Board of Advisors. If you have suggestions for the program, would like to submit a paper, or possibly serve on the Board of Advisors, please contact me." See the GCA Web site for related conferences, and "XML and 'The Semantic Web'."
