The 2nd workshop on the Computer-Integrated Knowledge
Systems (CIKS) Network for Materials and Systems was
held on September 24-25, 1997 at the Holiday Inn in
Gaithersburg, Maryland. The workshop was sponsored by
the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST), the Civil Engineering Research Foundation
(CERF), Construction Materials Council (CONMAT Council)
and the Americal Society for Testing and Materials
(ASTM). The purpose of this workshop was to advance the
CIKS program by seeking new input on knowledge needs
from construction industry organizations, discuss and
document progress occurring in the CIKS Working Groupd,
and crituque the proposed CIKS framework. Unlike the
1st CIKS workshop, the 2nd workshop had a more narrow
