WM2017 – 9th Conference Professional Knowledge Management

5.-7. April 2017 in Karlsruhe

About the conference

5.-7. April 2017 in Karlsruhe

Professional knowledge management is a key success factor for enterprises. Important for a successful knowledge management implementation is the coordination of corporate culture, organisational structure and human resource management as well as the methodological and technical implementation of these factors with the help of information and communications technology.

Focus of the 2017 conference is on “knowledge management in the digital era”. The biennial event brings together representatives of research and practice to participate in presentations, workshops, tutorials and an exhibition by companies, to share experiences, professional applications and discuss future visions.

Similar to previous years, the main technical-scientific program consists of several thematic workshops that make up most of the conference program. The open workshop format allows facilitating new areas of knowledge management and related areas as well as connecting and achieving cooperation between science and practice. Generally all topics with a clear relation to knowledge management can be workshop themes.

We call for interested workshop organisers to submit your proposal for a workshop by 24.10.2016.
