Hearings for an ASIS White Paper


Sponsored by SIG IFP and SIG PUB


Tom Kalil, National Economic Council, The White House, posed a question to ASIS at the '97 Annual Meeting -- whether the membership of ASIS has a consensus on what the intellectual property protection initiatives should contain. The purpose of this session is to hear the viewpoints of ASIS members and other interested parties, to instigate productive discussions between possibly disparate opinions, and to gather ideas that can be used in formulating a white paper on ASIS views on data base protection.

A panel will listen to a series of presentations and then question each presenter, much like a Senate Hearing.


Hearing Panel:
Marjorie M.K. Hlava, President, Access Innovations, Inc.
Bonnie Carroll, President, Information International Inc.
Debora (Ralf) Shaw, Assistant Dean, Indiana University
Dick Kaser, Executive Director, NFAIS
