VP and BA

Each year, at enormous expense, scientists travel to meetings to exchange knowledge. Because great value is attributed to these gatherings, more should be learned about scientific meetings in virtual places, which is considerably less expensive. Scientific conferencing in virtual meeting places has been ongoing since the early 90's. Observations of people experiencing these virtual places prompted objective studies revealing that nearly 70% of them report a sense of "being there" or virtual presence.
Nonaka's proposes a concept called ba, a model of knowledge creation, which denotes a place that promotes knowledge conversion. Ba is not limited to physical space; it includes virtual and mental spaces as well. Similarities between ba and virtual presence are still studied and discussed for their relevance to improving the effectiveness of virtual scientific collaboration, and for virtual collaboration in general.
