Introduction

International Conference on Universal Knowledge and Language - 2002

(25th-29th November 2002)
Goa,India

Knowledge, Culture and Language have been addressed by scientists and scholars as isolated domains in the past. Current trends are compelling philosophers, computer engineers, social leaders and policy-makers to enlarge the understanding of the convergence of information media, and to take a more integrated approach to societal development. The International Conference on Universal Knowledge organized by The UNDL Foundation, Geneva, Transcultura International Institute, Paris and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, aims at providing an appropriate framework and atmosphere for such approach and understanding.

The Conference is unique in its scope. It is intended to be an occasion for reflecting on the interdependence of language, knowledge and culture from the philosophical to the engineering perspectives. It is also intended to be another opportunity for learning and discussing specific issues concerning UNL multilingual infrastructure and related linguistic or technological issues. To facilitate an integrated approach to these diverse subjects, the Program is organized under the broad and provocative theme "Universal Knowledge and Language" and will be focussed from four interrelated perspectives: Philosophical, Cultural, Linguistic and Engineering. Within this broad framework, the Conference invites papers and discussions on a variety of topics, including the very concept of "Universal Knowledge".
