Scenarios in groupware-based environments show the problems of accessing knowledge structures in general and organizational knowledge structures in particular. By applying topic maps, as defined in ISO/IEC 13250, to groupware-based organizational knowledge bases, it is possible to close a gap between knowledge and information. In this paper, the aims of the K-Discovery project - applying topic maps to groupware-based environments - are presented. Based on this, an architectural model will be introduced creating knowledge structures by generating topic maps in a process-oriented groupware environment.

After a brief introduction and overview, two concrete scenarios of groupware-based office systems are described. The basic ideas of the K-Discovery project are presented and followed by an architectural model and two implementation approaches. This paper ends with some conclusions.
