Implementing a Semantic Web Site
Speaker:
Eric van der Vlist, CEO, Dyomedea
Description:
Some of the semantic web and knowledge technologies can easily be used with today's technology to facilitate the navigation on medium sized web sites. This presentation will show how one can build on keywords available in most of the XML formats to derive RDF Site Summaries, Topic Maps and pages classifications that are very helpful for navigating on medium or complex web sites. This will also prove to possibly increase the average number of pages per visitor.

K-Discovery: Identification of Distributed Knowledge Structures in a Process Oriented Groupware Environment
Speaker:
Stefan Smolnik, Research Assistant, University of Paderborn
Description: Scenarios in groupware environments show the problems of accessing knowledge structures in common and organizational knowledge structures in particular. Based on this an architectural model will be introduced during this session, in which knowledge structures are created by generating Topic Maps in a process oriented groupware environment.
Presentation Materials: PDF Slides and PDF Paper

Using XML Metadata with PDF to Enable Asset Management
Speaker:
Chuck Myers, Senior Manager of Business Development, Adobe Systems, Incorporated
Description: One of the keys to enabling corporate knowledge asset management is the use of metadata to identify and organize the assets. This presentation will explain how XML metadata can be used with PDF documents to enable management of these assets.

Applying Topic Maps to the Classification of Health Interventions
Speaker:
Derek Millar, Director, Professional Services, NewBook Production Inc.
Description: This presentation will describe how a health information application in Canada, the classification of health-related interventions, can benefit from the application of Topic Maps, an international standard for codifiying subjects and the relationships between them. How the semantics of the classification can be captured in a topic map, the impact of having a topic map on the process of publishing conventional paper and CD-ROM reference products, and the implications for collaboration and sharing of information with international health classification initiatives will be discussed.
Presentation Materials: Power Point Slides

Topic Maps, NewsML, and XML: Possible Integration and Implementations
Speaker:
Soelwin Oo, Student Developer, empolis UK
Description: This presentation will highlight real world scope of topic maps based technologies. It will focus on the newly published IPTC XML based NewsML standard and discuss how these two standards can be used together to provide a powerful collective knowledge base.
Presentation Materials: PDF Paper and Power Point Slides

Compendium: Making Meetings into Knowledge Events
Speaker:
Albert M. Selvin, Senior Member of Technical Staff, Verizon Communications and
Dr. Jeff Conklin, CogNexus
Description: This presentation will discuss how much of an organization's knowledge is constructed and negotiated in face-to-face meetings, but is often lost or forgotten. Compendium harvests formal and informal knowledge in real time, increasing shared understanding among meeting participants, creating a coherent organizational memory of learnings and decisions, and integrating the knowledge creation process across time and across diverse communities.
Presentation Materials: PDF Slides

Knowledge Holographs that Leverage How We Learn for Maximum Knowledge Management Productivity
Speaker: Bain McKay, Chief Scientist and Executive Vice President, CIRI Lab Inc.
Description: TOPIC MAPS address a new and powerful way to represent knowledge context in and across documents. But they represent only the first stage of Knowledge Management productivity. To be truly productive, we must address the entire Knowledge Management Life Cycle, including learning productivity where we waste 80% of our time organizing information for personal learning. We can automate this process by leveraging how we learn through new indexing methods like Knowledge Holographs that index fractal semantic analogues in real-time across 100s and 1000s of dimensions with mass scalability. Such methods depart significantly from standard scientific methods that focus deeply on individual disciplines by concomitantly leveraging both the broad and deep disciplines of Cognitive Science, in which information science plays a much less prominent role, and where the power of knowledge management shifts from information scientist, to domain expert.
Presentation Materials: Power Point Slides

Implementer Track: Tools and Applications
Track Chair: Sam Hunting

Harvesting XML Topic Maps
Speaker:
Nikita Ogievetsky, President, CogiTech Inc.
Description: Session discussions will focus on principals and techniques for harvesting XML Topic Maps. The presentation will be based on the experience with using XSLT scripts for XTM extraction from various types of metadata.
Presentation Materials: HTML Slides ; PDF Slides

The Automatic Encoding of Lexical Knowledge in RDF Topicmaps
Speaker:
Carol Jean Godby, Senior Research Scientist, OCLC Online Computer Library Center
Description: This presentation describes strategies for automatically extracting terminology and lexical relationships from collections of similar Web documents. The results are represented as an RDF graph that can be loaded into the Open Extensible RDF Toolkit to produce a searchable and browsable topicmap.
Presentation Materials: Power Point Slides

Implementer Track: Knowledge Acquisition
Track Chair: Dr. Hans Holger Rath, empolis Content Management GmbH

Extracting Knowledge from XML Documents Using Topic Maps
Speaker:
Eric Freese, Director of Consulting Services-Midwest Region, ISOGEN International/DataChannel, Inc.
Description: Topic Maps provide a powerful new capability to manage and interchange knowledge without modifying the source. This presentation will discuss how knowledge stored within documents can be captured and used to build a knowledge base. A demonstration system will show how the knowledge base can be used in the management and presentation of the knowledge base.
Presentation Materials:
Power Point Slides

Just-in-Time Knowledge Flow for Distributed Organizations Using Agents Technology
Speaker:
Ramon F. Brena, Professor, Center for Artificial Intelligence, ITESM, Mexico
Description: This session will discuss a generic agent-based tool for disseminating relevant pieces of information and knowledge in distributed or large organizations at the right moment; we call this "Just-in-time'' Information and Knowledge (JITIK). A substantially better internal and external communication level in a given organization could translate in a more efficient value production and the capacity of quickly reacting to market forces.
Presentation Materials: Power Point Slides

Knowledge Aggregation Using XML (This session was cancelled but slides have still been made available.)
Speaker:
Bryan Caporlette, Executive VP of Strategic Technology, Sequoia Software
Description: As more organizations move to integrate, or aggregate, information from disparate applications into knowledge bases they face many challenges in extracting the data locked within proprietary environments. This presentation will define a framework for using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) to facilitate knowledge aggregation.
Presentation Materials: Power Point Slides

Managing Complex Environments with Topic Maps
Speaker:
Bernard Vatant, Knowledge Representation Consultant, Mondeca
