To be mentioned here that the royalties linked to the book Knowledge, Organization and Management, edited by John Child et Martin Ihrig, fund the price awarded annually at the EGOS conference in memory of Max Boisot. In this book, chapter 9 by Agusti Canals, "Knowledge in Big Science", addresses the topics covered in this seminar. The chapter elaborates on the investigation developed by Max Boisot's team at CERN on the ATLAS project, that were described and analyzed in "Collisions and Collaboration" (Boisot, Nordberg, Yami, Niquevert, eds). This project develops further today with Agusti Canals (principal investigator and project manager).
