source Reinventing the Discourse - How Digital Tools Help Bridge and Transform Research, Education and Practice in Architecture [Proceedings of the Twenty First Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture / ISBN 1-880250-10-1] Buffalo (New York) 11-14 October 2001, pp. 380-385
summary This paper deals with the efficiency of publication means within the scientific community. Scientists spend a substantial part of their total time in visiting meetings and conferences, reading publications, writing emails, etc. Thus any improvements in the communication processes, in particular technologies which minimize non-value adding activities such as tedious retrieving of source material from library shelves, could have far-reaching (positive) consequences. In this respect a customized solution for the digitalization of paper-based conference proceedings is presented. The process of creating electronic copies of papers - disseminating knowledge on CAAD - in pdf-format is described as well as the respective decisions which were taken in this context.
