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 focus.
