[Deutscher Titel: [Konferenz] Aufruf für Artikel-Beiträge: Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management, November 2008, Japan (Text übersetzen: Deutsch)]

PAKM2008: 7th International Conference on Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University, Japan, Nov. 21 – 23, 2008

Deadline for Submission: Aug. 5th, 2008 (Hawaii Time)

Aim and Scope
The PAKM Conference Series offers a communication forum and meeting ground for practitioners and researchers in developing and deploying advanced business solutions for the management of knowledge in organisations. PAKM is a forum for people to share their views, to exchange ideas, to develop new insights, and to envision completely new kinds of solutions to Knowledge Management problems.
The topics will cover all relevant aspects of knowledge management. We invite practitioners and researchers from all over the world to submit papers. We are looking forward to a conference which will address a wide spectrum of topics from a variety of perspectives.

Contributions Sought
PAKM2008 addresses all aspects of Knowledge Management and their role in next-generation business solutions. We seek original contributions in the triangle of business and organisation sciences, cognitive science, and computer science that represent a true advancement beyond the state-of-the-art of Knowledge Management.

  • Business and organisation sciences provide the overall framework for developing a knowledge management approach with a focus on the business aspects rather than on information technology aspects.
  • Computer science provides the tools needed to build the information systems that are often required to make certain aspects of a knowledge management solution work.
  • Cognitive science helps to design knowledge management solutions in line with the cognitive capabilities of the people involved and optimally embedded in their work context.

Call for Papers
We wish to encourage the submission of contributions that espouse an interdisciplinary approach, which will therefore be favoured over one-dimensional papers.
Apart from a clear description of the real-world problems they address, papers must point out the business benefits of the suggested solutions. Furthermore, papers should emphasize the novel aspects of the suggested approach.
Papers may address one or more of the following topics, or any other topic as long as it fits into the overall conference theme:

  • Building and maintaining knowledge inventories
    • knowledge directories
    • knowledge modelling
    • automatic creation of meta data
