IDEAlliance Headquarters
100 Daingerfield Road
Alexandria, VA


A one-day seminar presented by Michel Biezunski and
Steven R. Newcomb (Coolheads Consulting). 

This seminar is for decision makers who are interested
in learning how to manage and exploit increasingly
massive and diverse information source in terms of the
the meanings and relevancies of their contents.  If the
volume and/or diversity of your information resources
are preventing you from fully exploiting them, you will
find this seminar eye-opening and valuable.

We will focus on how the Topic Maps standard (ISO
13250) suggests and implies solutions.  With this
paradigm, ontologies become interchangeable on a global
scale, but more significantly, the contents of
different knowledge bases can be usefully merged on an
ongoing basis, even if they are designed and maintained
independently of one another.

We will describe existing Topic Map projects,
highlighting their semantic integration aspects.  We
will discuss how information management policies can
preserve the independence and value of heterogeneous,
multi-lingual, multi-perspective approaches, even while
fulfilling requirements for usefulness in new markets
and for enterprise integration and transparency.
