Event in series I-KNOW
Knowledge management has been called everything from innovative and crucial to new wine in old bottles and dead. Usually, different perceptions spring from different perspectives. The aim of I-KNOW is to bring a broad array of these perspectives together, to learn from each other and to jointly find promising ways ahead for the future. In 2007, this will be reflected by putting special emphasis on discovering and comprehensively managing knowledge relationships, and on service-based knowledge management solutions.
The success story of the I-KNOW conference series started in 2001: In that year, the first I-KNOW conference doubled as the opening event of Know-Center and already attracted 150 attendees. The conference had been planned as an annual event from the very beginning, and has been growing continuously in the following years: The conference has drawn 200 attendees in 2002, 250 in 2003, 350 in 2004, 450 in 2005 and more than 500 in 2006.
Today, this makes I-KNOW the largest knowledge management conference of its kind in Europe, bringing together academics and practitioners every year. It has built a special reputation not only for its high-quality papers and presentations, but also for paying particular attention to enabling networking among attendees. The I-KNOW conference series follows an open access policy, providing the full texts of all papers and slides on its Web site, given the permissions of the authors.
Beginning in 2007, I-KNOW will be complemented by I-MEDIA. This extension of I-KNOW reflects the increasing importance and convergence of knowledge management and new media technologies. This lets participants of both conferences benefit from the synergies of both events, in particular from the presence of a range of different yet related perspectives at the same time and place. I-KNOW and I-MEDIA will continue to take place in Graz, the capital of Styria in the south of Austria, and home of the Know-Center. An interesting town to visit the whole year round, Graz and its surroundings are particularly rewarding in summer. The social events of the conference will give you a first taste, but you just might want to plan on staying a little longer ...
Research and Application
I-KNOW and I-MEDIA provide a perfect opportunity to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field. The contribution's novelty and quality are ensured by a high-calibre program committee featuring international experts from a broad range of disciplines.
The conference proceedings containing all accepted papers will appear in the printed conference proceedings. In addition, after the conference selected papers will also appear in J.UKM , an electronic Journal on Knowledge Management published by the Know-Center and TU-Graz.
