Abstract: Knowledge management (KM) is more and more recognized as a key factor of success for organisations: not only structured companies, but also virtual enterprises, networks of organisations or even virtual communities. These organisations of different kinds, are becoming increasingly aware of the need to collect, organise, mobilise, increase, in sum manage, the knowledge characterising their ability to stay alive, adapt and evolve in a turbulent context. Through various organisational and technological approaches, KM aims at improving knowledge access, sharing and reuse as well as new knowledge creation. KMIA 2008 highlights problems, requirements and solutions that are derived from actual, concrete experiences.
The fourteen papers accepted at KMIA 2008 give various answers to the following questions:

  • What organisational strategies can enable to enact and promote KM within organisations? How to link these organisational strategies with the ICT technology?
  • What are the various kinds of knowledge, application domains, organisational structures, and their implication on KM?
  • What methods and approaches can be adopted for the design of KM solutions?
  • What techniques and technologies can be adopted for sustainable KM solutions?
  • What are the critical success factors for KM socio-technical solutions?
  • How to evaluate KM applications in real situations? What are the lessons-learned in each phase of the KM application life-cycle, from conception up to continuous adaptation?
