It is undeniable that in today`s modern and competitive society, education is the key to success.
To understand the essence of a field, one needs DEPTH of knowledge in that field. However,
in order to understand the context in which the chosen field impacts society, one needs
BREADTH of knowledge. It is argued that “wisdom” is the sum of deep understanding about a
domain of knowledge and the breadth of appreciation of how the chosen domain relates to all
other domains. Both, “depth” and “breadth” of knowledge are equally important for
a competitive society.
To this end, POOIA intends to organize and offer seminars, workshops, and panel discussions
for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers,
educators, practitioners, and the public at large. POOIA will make concerted effort to reach
out to communities affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions,
corporations, government agencies, research centers, and community leaders).
