Abstract : This volume encapsulates the views of a panel of experts drawn from government, industry and academia. It is divided into three parts. The first part, Record of Discussions Held at the First Meeting of Technical Advisory Panel on February 17, 1987, highlights the most significant dimensions of Knowledge-Based Integrated Information Systems Engineering. The second part, Record of Discussions held at the Second Meeting of Technical Advisory Panel on May 21, and 22, 1987, presents opinions in the areas of: Organization, Strategy, and Management; Distributed Database Technology; Knowledge and Semantics; and Information Modeling and Mapping. A framework for tackling the problems in these areas is also presented. The third part, Contributions by Members of the Technical Advisory Panel (TAP), contains ten outstanding papers contributed by members of the TAP. The first set of three papers focuses on distributed databases. The second set of three papers concentrates on information modeling alternatives. The final set of four papers examines a range of auxiliary issues in the context of large-scale, distributed, heterogeneous information systems. Keywords: Knowledge based integrated information systems engineering. (KR)
