IC COMMUNITY DESKTOP COLLABORATION CONFERENCE NEXT WEEK! SUBJ: INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY COLLABORATION CONFERENCE The Intelligence Community is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Collaboration Conference and Technology Exposition: "Collaboration: Make it Real" to be held from May 11-14, 1999 at the Founder's Inn and Conference Center in Virginia Beach, VA. The focus of this year's conference is making collaboration a reality. We'll hear from speakers not only from within the Intelligence Community, but also from private industry. Among this year's speakers are: Mr. John Dahms, Intelligence Community CIO Ms. Jessica Lipnack, Collaboration Pioneer, noted author and CEO for NetAge, Inc. Ms. Kathy Harris, a leading expert in Knowledge Management, Gartner Group Mr. John Gannon, ADCI/A&P Mr. David Coleman, a top consultant in Groupware, Collaboration and Knowledge Webs, and Managing Director of Collaborative Strategies, Inc. Our speakers will provide us with information gained from their personal experience and from their study of industry knowledge and innovation. Two of the speakers will facilitate panel discussions, providing the opportunity for more focused interaction with conference attendees. Additionally, to provide you with practical application to the speakers' content, there will be vendors on hand to provide collaboration tools, tutorials, and workshops with hands-on experience. One of the highlights of this year's conference will be a Knowledge Management Interoperability Center or "KMIC" live demonstration. The KMIC will feature cutting-edge, state-of-the-art electronic conferencing and collaboration (ECC) technologies in support of data, audio, video, security, and knowledge management. As best a non-secure facility will accommodate, the KMIC will simulate live intelligent environments where these new ECC technologies can be used to enable the real-time interactive communication of knowledge information. The KMIC demonstration will run concurrently with conference panel sessions and during exposition hours. You won't want to miss this demonstration! This conference will provide you with the current trends around collaboration and practical ways to actually make it happen. Last year's conference drew 400 people from the Intelligence community.
