Tecnia Institute of Advanced Studies, Madhuban Chowk, Rohini
(Delhi) and Satija Research Foundation for Library and Information
Science (SRFLIS) are jointly holding an International Conference
on the topic “Content to Connectivity- Paradigm Shift
in Knowledge Innovation, Information Representation, Information
Management Systems and Librarianship’.
The conference is being organized to bring together and provide
a platform to Management, Information Technology, Library
Information Sciences and Media Professionals, academicians,
students and research scholars to present, discuss and exchange
their experiences and expertise on the current issues pertaining
to the theme of the conference.
Today, organizations find themselves buried in structured
and unstructured data, as the use of online data resources,
mobile tools, and social networking tools spread, there is
growing need to capture, manage and share content and knowledge
in new ways. Organizations are looking for solutions to retrieve
and manage their content; unfortunately, many organizations
lack the systems to do so. There are many interfaces to share
information and knowledge content among employees, customers
and business partners. The world has become small due to connectivity,
knowledge has become strong currency to trade between individuals
and groups, which requires cross-functional planning and expertise
through information technology and ultimately it promotes
creativity. There’s no single tool or software package
that captures the imagination of the organization to look
into as one stop solution for storing and managing the contents
and knowledge and to brings in compatibility between storage
devices and human resources.
The main goal of ‘Tecnia SRFLISindia Summit-2014’
Content to Connectivity a two days international conference
is to exchange ideas and find out different ways to manage
knowledge contents and connect it to the world in more effective
and efficient way. The ‘Tecnia SRFLISindia Summit-2014’
will explore different modes of available connectivity, which
brings in new Paradigm shifts in knowledge Innovation, Innovation
Representation, Information Management Systems and Librarianship.
The conference will provide an appropriate platform to all
Academicians, Intellectuals, Researcher and, Scientists for
capturing & sharing expertise on:-
• Knowledge management:- Knowledge management is a
developing body of methods, techniques, tools, and values
which organizations use to acquire, create, develop, share,
transfer and apply knowledge to provide a return on their
intellectual assets. For organizations to innovate –
and thus sustain competitive advantage – requires the
ability to quickly adapt to the business environment and save
time-to-market. This adaptation requires learning, problem-solving,
and the creation and integration of relevant new knowledge
in response to business needs. The core components of KM –
People, Process, Content and Technology, are the People component
that is increasingly regarded as the lynchpin of successful
• Information:- Information- as a concept has been
considered and contrasted extensively with such terms as data,
knowledge, and wisdom. On the other hand, the words information,
text, and document are often used interchangeably in the field.
No matter which format a piece of information may take, it
needs to be rep- resented before it can be retrieved. Information
representation includes the extraction of some elements (e.g.,
keywords or phrases) from a document or the assignment of
terms (e.g., descriptors or subject headings) to a document
so that its essence can be characterized and presented.
• Information Representation:- Information Representation-can
be done via any combination of the following means: abstracting,
indexing, categorization, summarization, and extraction. Information
processing and information management, though having different
meanings, are often regarded as synonyms of information representation.
While information processing refers to how information is
handled for retrieval purposes, information management deals
with the full range of activities associated with information,
from information selection to information preservation.
• Knowledge and innovation:- Knowledge and innovation
are inseparable from each other since they drive economies
around the world. Knowledge producers and users endeavor to
leverage the ideas, technologies, know-how and expertise on
which their competitiveness depends. In simple terms, innovation
is the application and transmission of knowledge from research
to development and application. Now sharing knowledge through
collaborative innovation has become increasingly important.
• Information Management System:- Information Management
System (IMS) is a general term for software designed to facilitate
the storage, organization and retrieval of information. It
is a database and transaction management system that was first
introduced by IBM in 1968. Since then, IMS has gone through
many changes in adapting to new programming tools and environments.
• Librarianship:- Librarianship incorporates extensive
revisions reflecting the increasing shift towards a networked
and digital information environment, and its impact on documents,
information, knowledge, users and managers. It offers a broad-based
overview of the approaches and tools used in the structuring
and dissemination of knowledge.
