"KnowFest was a day-and-a-half workshop to explore the feasibility of, and need for, creating a knowledge network (KnowNet) to deepen the nation's understanding of terrorist behaviors. The workshop was held in Albuquerque, NM, and was sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories' Advanced Concept Group. Workshop participants included those who conduct research into various aspects of terrorism phenomena, government decision-makers who make policy and tactical decisions in the fight against terrorism, and individuals versed in the technical aspects of knowledge management and collaborative environments. A list of attendees and an agenda is in the appendix... Key concepts embodied in the definition are that KnowNet is a process enabler not just a data repository; it deals with all aspects of the terrorism phenomenon, from the perpetrator to the victims to the choice and execution of methods; and it can be helpful in many different types of research and decision-making venues."
