Call For Papers On Knowledge Transfer
(London 22 - 26 July 1996)

What is knowledge? Is it really power? Who wants it? Who has it? Why transfer
it? Whom should it be transferred to? What are the means of transferring it?
Is it the same as know-how? What are the impacts? Can knowledge be elicited?
Can knowledge be manipulated? Can transfer of knowledge be formulated? How
do archaeologists, technologists, psychologists, sociologists, pharmacologists,
artists, linguists, information technologists, health care practitioners,
engineers, philosophers and theologians define transfer of knowledge? How do
managers, educators, farmers, industrialists, politicians, statisticians,
geneticists, and laymen/women utilise transferred knowledge? Is transferring
knowledge viewed in the west as it is in the east? How do the developing
countries benefit from it? Is social culture a deterministic parameter during
this transition? Can social culture be influenced by transfer of knowledge?
What are the tools? What are the technical specifications of these tools? Can
transferring knowledge be automated? Are knowledge based systems the answer?
Is internet the first step? What are the objectives? Who sets these objectives?
How much does knowledge cost? Is it worth it? Can it be obtained cheaper? Who
has researched on transferring knowledge?
