General Information:

'Information vs Meaning?' is the subject of the first in a series of Scope annual conferences that will explore the impact of information technology on human experience. Scope 1 is to be held in Vienna, Austria, on 30 September and 1 October 1999.

The first conference will ask what new tools and strategies for acquiring knowledge look set to emerge. International speakers from fields of development, science, design and management will present their experiences of current developments and how they may interplay to create a new scenario.

Scope is organised into four sections plus an on-line section entitled 'making sense of the world'. These include knowledge interfaces, disappearing information, vanishing boundaries and a view from the balcony.

The on-line section is designed as an open forum where everybody - from speakers to attendees to the on-line community - is invited to contribute their personal strategy for making sense of a changing world.
