Greetings!    (04)

You are invited to the next Collaborative Expedition workshop on Tuesday,
September 14, 2004, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., at the National Science
Foundation, Ballston, VA.  This workshop will expand the context for
business and technology decision-makers and practitioners who are advancing
the intergovernmental mechanisms key to citizen-centric government.  We'll
be learning from the manufacturing sector about business relationship
convergence challenges that are relevant to our e-Government efforts today.
In addition, we'll be initiating an intelligent manufacturing virtual forum
to continue the dialogue begun at the workshop.  The agenda and venue
location is below.  Workshop information is also available at:
http://colab.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ExpeditionWorkshop/DesignWorkshopforNationalDialogueOnIntelligentManufacturing    (05)

Please share this invitation with interested colleagues.  RSVP to
Renee.Hughes@xxxxxxx or 202-501-4083.   Please note, all laptops brought to
the workshop must first be scanned for viruses in Room 357, Stafford I.    (06)

Best Regards,
Susan Turnbull, GSA, Office of Citizen Services and Communications

Collaborative Expedition Workshop #35, September 14, 2004, at NSF    (09)

Design Workshop to Frame National Dialogue on Intelligent Information Use
in Manufacturing and Implications for e-Government    (010)

1. Purpose/ Description    (011)

To help our Enterprise Architecture, Emerging Technology, and Federal
Networking and Information Technology Research & Development (NITRD)
communities understand the broad implications of Intelligent Information
Use in Manufacturing.  What lessons from the manufacturing sector offer
valuable context for intergovernmental agreements around knowledge sharing
and enterprise innovations?   What is unfolding at the frontier of this
important Information Space today? What are the strategic priorities and
relationships that can frame the planning for national dialogue around this
strategic opportunity? Who needs to be included in this dialogue? What are
the implications for Intelligent Information Use in Manufacturing, in light
of the global build-out of cyber-infrastructure? What environmental, trade,
and corporate (both tangible and intangible assets) governance mechanisms
are inextricably linked to this global connectedness? Will automated
integration be achieved as trusted relationships mature?    (012)

What are the implications and challenges likely to arise for US industry
(regulated and non-regulated), financial institutions, shareholders, state
economic development programs, and global intermediaries? How can we
anticipate the realistic scenarios needed to form sound alliances and
manage risk? How can Intelligent Information Use in Manufacturing
contribute to the triple bottom line - Environment, Social and Economic
aspects of corporate performance?  Will business incubators (state economic
development programs) and innovation diffusion networks (SBIR, seed
investment, angel investors,etc.) have a role as frontier outposts for
Intelligent Information Use in Manufacturing?    (013)

Will frontier outposts for Intelligent Information Use in Manufacturing be
the first adopters of open, semantic technologies (like ontological
standards or semantic web-services) that "distill" and "apply" the
smart-data, -information and -knowledge needed by both people and machines
to solve complex problems within their work environments? How can the
relationships, business processes, and tools needed by diverse people to
augment their "collective intelligence" around manufacturing be designed to
support and not hobble, people's natural forms of expertise?    (014)

2. Collaborative Expedition Workshop Series Background    (028)

     The Collaborative Expedition workshops serve individuals and
     policy-makers from all sectors: government, business, and
     non-government organizations to practice an emerging societal form
     that advances realization of the citizen-centric government goal of
     the President's Management Agenda. Each workshop organizes
     participation around a common purpose, larger than any institution,
     including government. By learning how to appreciate multiple
     perspectives around the potentials and realities of this larger
     "purpose", subsequent actions of individuals representing many forms
     of expertise, can be expressed more effectively in their respective
     settings.    (029)

     Workshop sponsors, including, GSA Office of Intergovernmental
     Solutions, the Architecture and Infrastructure Committee of the
     Federal CIO Council and National Coordination Office of the
     Interagency Committee on IT R&D (Social, Economic and Workforce
     Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development (SEW) Coordinating
     Group) value this "frontier outpost" to open up quality conversations,
     augmented by information technology, that leverage the collaborative
     capacity of united and diverse Americans seeking to discover, frame,
     and act on national potentials.    (030)

     A key finding of the past year, is the need to apply emerging
     technologies (web services, grid computing, and semantic web) to tune
     up the innovation pipeline with better linkages among business
     incubators (state economic development programs), innovation diffusion
     networks (SBIR, angel investors, etc.) and business intelligence
     centers with quality information about e-government and e-commerce
     gaps. Many of the agile business components surfacing in the small
     business innovation world are not easily discovered by e-government
     managers, resulting in lost or delayed opportunities for both parties.    (031)
